FLASHBACK: Trump Once Saved a Georgia Woman’s Farm From Forclosure After Her Husband Committed Suicide

President Trump is set to visit Rome, Georgia tomorrow for one last rally in the state before the Tuesday’s election in between trips to Michigan and Florida.

Georgia Republican Senator Kelly Loeffler tweeted out “I’m SO excited to welcome him back to Georgia tomorrow! I hope you’ll join me in voting for him to help Keep America Great.”

She also shared a story from 1986 that focused on how Trump helped save a Georgia farmer’s wife from losing the family farm after the farmer had committed suicide because of the debt. “President Trump is a fantastic man who has been helping Georgians for DECADES,” Loeffler added.

Georgia Republican Congressional candidate Marjorie Taylor Greene retweeted the tweet and said, “NW GA is fired up to welcome President Trump to Rome, GA tomorrow!

Greene echoed Loeffler’s words as she said, “Trump has been helping Georgians long before he became President, which is why we love him!”

An AP story from September 1986 describes how a woman whose husband committed suicide to delay foreclosure on their family farm says a $20,000 donation from a New York real estate developer means her husband didn’t die in vain.

Lenard Hill III shot himself in February of that year to stop foreclosure on his land 20 minutes before the scheduled sale, but the life insurance was not enough to pay off his debts, and the land was rescheduled for auction.

The auction was canceled minutes before it was to start after Trump intervened with his $20,000 gift to Hill’s widow, Annabel.

WAYNESBORO, Ga. (AP) _ A woman whose husband committed suicide to delay foreclosure on their family farm says a $20,000 donation from a New York real estate developer means her husband didn’t die in vain.

Lenard Hill III shot himself Feb. 4 to stop foreclosure on his land 20 minutes before the scheduled sale. But the life insurance was not enough to pay off his debts, and the land was rescheduled for auction Tuesday.

The auction was canceled minutes before it was to start Tuesday after Donald Trump intervened with his $20,000 gift to Hill’s widow, Annabell. ADVERTISEMENT

After seeing Mrs. Hill plead last week on a nationally televised news conference for help in saving part of the farm, Trump sent the money and Norma Foerderer, a spokeswoman for Trump in New York, said, ″Trump phoned down to the auction block and stopped it and he guaranteed that he would assist them (the Hill family) in this thing.″

A 2015 Buzzfeed story describes how a donation drive was launched to collect the $187,000 necessary to pay the debt and it instantly took off, thanks in no small part to Trump’s celebrity and his connections.

The drive raised all but $78,000 and Trump offered to help pay half, while Dallas farmer and landowner Tom McKamy matched Trump’s offer.

That Christmas, at the atrium of the Trump Tower, flanked by the media and others who had donated, Trump and Hill, burned the mortgage on the farm.
