Kellyanne Conway, Donald Trump's campaign manager, on Monday rebutted criticisms that her candidate was not nearly as charitable as he has claimed.
An extensive investigation from the Washington Post has claimed that Trump's philanthropy "falls short of his words," and some have pointed to that type of finding as a reason not to support the GOP nominee.
Conway told CNBC, however, that she has personally seen Trump write donations to charity.
"It is not true," she said of those claims that Trump is lying about his charitable giving. "I'm rebutting it right now, it's not fair and it's not true."
"He's a very generous man, I've seen him write checks, I've been there when he's writing checks to people," she added.
In fact, Conway said, Trump's run for the presidency is an example of his penchant for civic sacrifice.
"And the fact is that the idea that somebody who has made such a tremendous sacrifice to run for president — basically a huge sacrifice: didn't need the money, didn't need the fame, didn't need the power, didn't need the status — and you've got a lot of deals that didn't get done, I'm sure, in the Trump Corporation because the guy at the top is running for president," she said.
"Those are tremendous sacrifices, he's been incredibly generous, he doesn't talk about it, but he's been able to connect people with resources and opportunity and to help them get a hand up over time, and I think it's incredibly important that people look at that."
Earlier Monday, billionaire David Tepper slammed Trump.
"During Sandy, the big Sandy benefit, the big 9/11 benefit, not one dime. Not one dime! You can't tell me this is a charitable, generous person," the Appaloosa Management founder said.
"Trump masquerades as an angel of light. But he is the father of lies," Tepper added.
