Here’s a challenge to Donald Trump and any other office seeker who posses great wealth: Take The Giving Pledge. Join the new billionaires’ club set up by Bill and Melinda Gates and Warren Buffett. Membership requirements are simple: Be worth at least $1 billion and pledge to give at least 50 percent to charitable causes. FYI, the club founders have pledged to give 95 percent and 99 percent of their wealth, respectively.
