Donald Trump announced on Monday that he has approved $1.9 million for Arizona photographer Kevin Carter, and the Trump campaign has pledged $1 million in the future to support Carter’s photography efforts.
Trump said that Carter was “a true artist and a true inspiration.”
“I just want to thank him and the other photographers and photographers across the country for their incredible work and for being true to their passion for photography,” Trump said in a statement.
“The American Dream is alive and well, and these incredible photographers have provided that for many years.
This is a tremendous gift for Arizona.”
The $1,000 gift is a portion of Carter and his wife Sarah’s campaign fund.
The couple is currently working on a new book about their wedding in the Arizona desert.
“Kevin and Sarah are doing an incredible job and I know they’re going to do great work,” Trump told reporters during a press conference in the White House Rose Garden.
“They’re amazing photographers.
I just want people to know that.
They are true artists.
They do an incredible amount of work and they’re not only in the best of shape, they are really dedicated to it.”
Carter, the former editor of the Phoenix New Times, is known for capturing images of the cityscape and local residents, and he has been honored for his work with the Phoenix Rising Phoenix Festival.
The Carters, who married in 2008, were married in a ceremony in the Phoenix city hall on Saturday.
Trump, who is from Phoenix, told the media that the couple was looking forward to welcoming their new granddaughter into the world in September.
