12. There's estimates that $1 billion in donations will be achieved by the end of today

It's none of my business what you do with your money, but just a friendly reminder that there are many charities out there that could benefit from some extra cash.

14. And I always do what I can.

Canít help myself with this one, I want to know that I helped heal that sacred space for people to enjoy for another 800 years.

16. The good news is

all indications are that the cathedral can and will be restored. It seems that the resources will be in place, just a matter of time. And it's going to take many years.

2. I wonder what the cost to rebuild is

It doesn't have to be put back the way it was. They can do something somewhat new and then grow it over time. $300 million should be more than enough to cover the cost.

4. Trump will charge them for the firefighting advice yesterday

the best advice ever, of course. and, he'll say that his advice is what saved Notre Dame from total destruction.

5. One would think the Catholic Church could afford to do this

And the billionaires money could go to, I dunno, something like helping the poor?

21. One would still expect them to contribute

It is a very wealthy organization. I heard one pundit say this might ignite a new wave of religion in a world that has been moving away from organized religion. If wealthy citizens can offer money you would think the church would too.

6. I'm sure he'll find a way to file a claim

against the French Government for reimbursement for some property that he doesn't have near there and get himself some cash. Isn't that how it works in trumpworld?

8. he probably doesnt have $300,000 k to his name

and those people are 'french libruls' so I can't imagine donnie t would donate any money (even if he had it).

Perhaps Vlad can loan him a few million in 'forgivable loans'?

11. Trump will just pour cold water on the whole thing.

Or try to buy it and convert it to a gaudy motel.

13. He's going to give the cathedral the Medal of Freedom.

And the contact information to a water-tanker outfit he knows.

18. Since Trumps administration wants to drill

in the vicinity of Chaco Canyon - a collection of Native American structures older than Notre Dame - and has already radically reduced the size of Bear's Ears National Monument, I think any "donation" Trump does with respect to Notre Dame de Paris would involve selling the charred wood and stones as souveniers, with most of the proceeds going into his pocket. Heritage doesn't mean squat to him.

... but he'll still take the tax deduction for it.
