Home Depot co-founder Bernie Marcus wants to donate more

Bernie Marcus, co-founder of the DIY global market leader Home Depot, wants to donate a large proportion of his money, reports the daily newspaper "Atlanta Journal Constitution". His assets are estimated at over USD 4 bn. He hopes, he told the newspaper, for a "rate of return in emotion" by supporting projects. In recent years, Marcus is already said to have raised USD 2 bn for charitable purposes.

This also includes millions in donations which are said to have been pumped into Donald Trump's election campaign in 2016.  According to details in the newspaper, Marcus is also planning on supporting the president's re-election campaign. They quote him in saying that Trump needs to be supported because he is fighting for jobs in the USA and putting China its place in trade.
