The Washington Examiner covered President Trump’s generosity:
President Donald Trump reportedly made a donation to the United Cajun Navy to assist in the search for crew members of a capsized vessel.
The former president donated $10,000 to the group that organizes private search and rescue missions during natural disasters after the Seacor Power lift boat capsized, Todd Terrell, the president of the United Cajun Navy, told KATC. Terell said that the money would be used to fund the search for seven of the sailors who are still missing.
The vessel capsized off the southern coast of Louisiana on April 13 after winds reached speeds of 70 to 80 miles an hour. Six people were rescued, and authorities have confirmed that six people were killed in the incident. The Coast Guard suspended the search for the vessel on April 19, after a 175-hour search of over 9,200 nautical miles.
After the search was suspended, Capt. Will Watson, the commander of Coast Guard Sector New Orleans, thanked everyone who had assisted with the rescue effort and extended his condolences to the families and friends of the deceased and those who are still missing.

Fox 8 News had more details to share about the shipwreck and the United Cajun Navy:
From Texas to Port Fourchon, friends and relatives of missing Seacor Power crewmembers are putting their hopes behind the United Cajun Navy. The Cajun Navy had four seaplanes in the air, fueled by dollars from supporters, eager to bring closure to victims’ family members.
United Cajun Navy sent out seaplanes from Lafitte during their five-day search for missing people.
Aboard one of them was the father of missing Seacor Power crewman Dylan Daspit, who’s holding out hope that a Seacor life jacket, found in the gulf off Terrebonne Parish, might offer clues.
“So we’re jumping in these planes today and we’re going to Timbalier Block Islands. There’s a lot of abandoned platforms, so maybe,” Scott Daspit says.
Residents of Princeton Texas, the hometown of missing crewman Jason Krell, are hoping the search effort succeeds.
Hopefully a miracle takes place and the Cajun Navy will be able to find the missing sailors
