KEY POINTS

  • A GoFundMe campaign set a $3 million goal for the Queens home
  • Thank the president by buying the home in his honor, the campaign ad reads
  • The president has a tumultuous relationship with his home state and city

A crowd-funding campaign is seeking $3 million to gift the childhood home of Donald Trump to the president as he leaves the Oval Office. However, the campaign is falling far short of its goal.

Paramount Realty USA is listing the five-bedroom Tudor in Jamaica Estates in Queens, New York, in a GoFundMe campaign that seeks to gift the home to the current POTUS.

“Love Trump?” the ad reads. “Thank President Trump by contributing to this campaign to buy his childhood home in his honor!"

The campaign set a $3 million goal. The former home of the president last sold in 2017 for $2.14 million and was last listed at $2.9 million.

The property at 85-15 Wareham Place has 4.5 baths and a detached two-stall garage. The lister, Misha Haghani, stated that whatever happens to the property, if the goal is met, is up to Trump. Possible uses are listed as a presidential museum or center, a house of worship, or just a single-family home.

“If the goal is met, the funds raised will go to the owner of the property, and the property will be donated to Donald J. Trump, or to a 501(c)(3) non-profit selected by him or us,” the listing reads.

The president was raised in the home until he was 4 years old. Appearing on “The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon” in 2016, the president remembered the home fondly, saying he’d like to buy it.

The identity of the current owner is shielded behind Trump Birth House, a limited liability corporation. A report from The New York Times found the corporation was overseen by a lawyer representing Chinese real estate investors. After the property last sold in 2017, a source spoke to the newspaper on the condition of anonymity to reveal the current owner is a Chinese woman, but her name was not disclosed.

Aggravating Beijing was a central component of the Trump presidency, though the Times noted his business reputation has drawn accolades in China.

Trump and New York are at odds as well. The president changed his residency from New York to Florida earlier this year. In September, the president ordered officials to withhold federal funds from New York City due to the surge in violence that followed mass demonstrations against police brutality after the death of George Floyd. The city sued the Trump administration over the move.

New York voted overwhelmingly in favor of Democrats in the election, with now President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris taking 61% of the total presidential votes cast, according to state results certified Dec. 3.

The GoFundMe campaign was launched on Nov. 23. To date, 10 people have donated a total of $125.
