President Donald Trump has pledged to donate $1 million to the Hurricane Harvey relief fund.

A pledge that has been widely reported bymultiple news agencies, regardless of what anyone on the internet is saying.

Questions are being raised about where the money will be sourced, and which charitable funds will be benefiting from it

Initially, it was thought that the money would come from Trump's own sizable fortune or his charity The Trump Foundation.

What should have been a straight-forward donation has already turned into a 'will he, won't he?' situation, and a number of people are not happy.

Among them is Twitter user Shauna (@goldengateblond), who has her own doubts over Trump's pledge.

The tweet soon attracted a lot of attention, garnering over 500 retweets and over 2000 likes at the time of writing.

Nearly everyone was in full support of her criticism of the President, but one Trump supporter took exception and challenged her protest.

So Shauna did exactly that. She shared her donation receipts to Austin Pets Alive and Houston Food Bank.

It certainly went down well with her following:

If like Shauna you would like to help those affected by Hurricane Harvey, you to can donate money to the relief fund or to the two charities Shauna contributed to; Austin Pets Alive! and Houston Food Bank.
