The "Philanthropy" page from Trump's LA golf club
Trump's Los Angeles golf club used to have a page bragging about donating $5 million to 200 charities. NPR contacted those charities. They could account for only $800K. Seventeen charities said they never received anything. "And then the donations we could verify were almost entirely in-kind donations for a round of golf or a gift certificate for a Sunday brunch for two." As soon as this report came out, the "philanthropy" page was deleted. Article. Wayback Machine mirror of the page.
Trump's support for Luther Strange
In the hours leading up to Alabama's 2017 Republican primary for Senator, Trump repeatedly tweeted his support for candidate Luther Strange, who lost to hatemongering theocrat Roy Moore. Trump deleted these tweets that night. They were captured by Politwoops.
Twitter and Facebook accounts for the presidential transition
This is just one of 449 tweets that disappeared when someone on Trump's team deleted the presidential transition Twitter account on February 27, 2017. @transition2017 used to be here. The last mirror in the Wayback Machine - made the morning of Feb 27 - is here.
The same thing happened to the transition's Facebook account, which was here. Facebook blocks all archiving and caching, so it's not recoverable.
