Reality bites: Trump’s fear of sharks leads to surge in charity donations

Donald Trump’s reported fear of sharks appears to have led to a flood of donations to animal welfare charities. Trump revealed his dislike of sharks on Twitter in 2013, saying they were “last on my list – other than perhaps the losers and haters of the world!”

The matter came back into public focus after an interview with the pornographic film actor Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford. Clifford told the magazine Trump had been glued to shark programmes on the Discovery Channel. “He is obsessed with sharks” she said. “Terrified of sharks.”

Cynthia Wigren, the chief executive officer and co-founder of Atlantic White Shark Conservancy, told the MarketWatch website: “We have been receiving donations in Trump’s name since the story was published.”
