The New Cost Of Shaking Donald Trump’s Hand: $10,000

What’s that? You want to shake Donald Trump’s hand? Wait, wait — it’ll cost ya $10,000. If you’re a Trump fan ready to shell out 10 G’s just to meet The Donald, don’t get excited too fast. It’s not for everyone, of course. You have to be invited to spend $10,000 to shake Donald Trump’s hand. And you also have to be an already successful business person in Australia. Say what?
Oh, and did we mention that the money isn’t going to charity?
“Like me, you’re at the top of the food chain. And no-one put you there, you put yourself there. I respect that. In fact, it’s why I’d like to extend an invitation to you that very few will receive,” he wrote in a letter to select Australian business leaders, reports news.com.au.
It’s Trump’s first speaking engagement in Australia, and he says the opportunity to meet and talk with him will be a one-time-only happening in celebration of the occasion. The event is called “Platinum Privilege.” Of course it is.
Only a select number of people were invited, but there’s only room for an even smaller select group of 30 or 40 to attend. Or, as we see it, only a select number of people will be stupid to shell out five figures just to meet Donald Trump.
Again, just to be clear, this is not for charity. This is not to do deals with Donald Trump. It is just to meet him. For $10,000. If 40 people actually signed up, that would be $400,000 in Trump’s pocket, for doing basically nothing. Ugh.
