house Bill H.R. 1063

Should Donations to Presidential Library Foundations be Disclosed?

Argument in favor

Making a donation towards a presidential library is essentially a political donation, but without campaign contribution limits — meaning that it can be a way to buy influence if it isn't monitored.

All political donations should be reported publicly. Best example what can happen is the current investigation.

So if Trump is impeached and sent to prison, do we instead name a prison after him?

I think donations to any government agency or related to presidential library or anything should be reported made public

Argument opposed

Many of the people making a donation of $200 or more aren’t doing it to buy influence — they want to preserve history. It seems unfair to treat a $200 donation the same as a $200,000 donation.

No I’m in opposition to this Democratic bill as written. #MAGA

I am not seeing how making a donation to a library is like making a political donation to a campaign

Presidential libraries are built long after the president has left office when donations couldn’t be used to influenced the president. Therefore it wouldn’t be necessary for the public to know who’s contributing to the library.

    Library fund...Funny for the man who can’t read, a library? You better keep an eye on the money and where it really goes. I’m sure t will end up being used for legal fees.

    Every penny donated to any and every politician for any and every purpose must be fully disclosed.

    There is a difference between a political contribution and a donation. We donate to our local food bank, church, and other organizations like salvation army and compassion international. There is something special about giving just to give. Donating in order to get something in return isn't really giving. It's buying. With buying one always wants a good return.

    With this administration, we have seen questionable “philanthropic” practices involving the inauguration, the President’s personal foundation, and Trump businesses. There is a clear need for close scrutiny of these foundations.

    Yes, these donations should be disclosed. This is another form of political donations. We need more transparency in this process.

    ANY DONATIONS TO ANYTHING THAT IS CONNECTED WITH THE PRESIDENT OF THIS COUNTRY MUST BE DISCLOSED. SO SHOULD ALL THE CONGRESS. All other presidents have disclosed everything, including their income taxes. Trump is the only one who thinks he’s above that & the Congressional REPUBLICANS have allowed him to get by with it. SHAME ON THEM.

    Donations for any politician and presidential library should be revealed. Secrets breed corruption.

    After we address the fact 1 out of 10 young adults ages 18-25 experiences some form of homelessness over a 12-month period. That’s 3.5 million young adults. About half of them involved explicitly reported homelessness while the other half involved couch surfing only. Preparing for their future was our responsibility, and we failed.
