The owner of President Trump’s childhood home is asking his supporters to pitch in $3 million to buy the Queens Tudor as a parting gift for him when he leaves office.
The real estate agency trying to sell the home has launched a crowdfunding campaign that calls for Trump backers to donate money to buy the Jamaica Estates five-bedroom house.
“We are raising funds to buy President Trump’s childhood home for him, or a charity of his choosing, as a token of appreciation,” Paramount Realty USA wrote on the GoFundMe page.
The realtors suggested that Trump could use the property, where he spent the first four years of his life, as a presidential library, museum or house of worship.
Or he could move in with his wife, Melania, and youngest son, Barron, after they leave 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
“What happens to the historic property is up to him!” the page said.
Only when the entire, hefty price tag is secure will the home be turned over to the president.
So far, the page has raised $125.
The agency has unsuccessfully tried to pawn off the home for $3 million at auctions.
But then they cooked up the crowdfunding plan, which has “never been done before.”
“It is more likely that one million people who love Trump would each give three dollars, rather than a wealthy buyer giving three million,” Paramount real estate agent Misha Haghani told Agence France-Presse.
Haghani said if Trump no longer wants the home, it will go to a charity selected by him.
And if he doesn’t pick a charity, “we will make a selection for him,” Haghani said.
The Tudor-style home last sold in 2017 for $2.14 million to a Chinese investor.
Last year, another GoFundMe page sought to purchase the home for a different purpose — to buy the 2,000-square-foot residence so it could be destroyed.
“I want to buy it and tear it down,” LA resident David Yates wrote on the since-deleted fundraising campaign, which sought $5 million for the project.
