Before and throughout Donald Trump’s presidency, Sheldon and Miriam were well-known for being his kind supporters. The Adelsons contributed around $173 million to the 2020 election alone. Over the past 30 years, the Adelsons have donated $308 million to political causes.
In a 2012 Fortune story, Miriam stated: “Sheldon means the world to me. He is my best friend, as I know I am to him, and he is a ‘mensch.’ He calls me an angel, and I respond by referring to him as the “wind beneath my wings.” In any event, we are traveling together on an amazing aircraft.”
