Trump had “a wonderful time” and “talked strongly about working hard and incentives” with the students—and came armed with incentives of his own.

It still needed several thousand dollars at the time of Trump’s visit, according to the New York Daily News.

The Nike lottery caused “frenzied excitement” among the students, the New York Times reported, but one kid questioned Trump about it.

“I asked because school is more important than sneakers, but he didn’t really answer,” Rodriguez told the Daily News.

He decided he could hand out additional sneaker coupons to disappointed kids who didn’t win the drawing, and he distributed what the Times called “beautiful, psychedelic Trump Tower hats for every child.”
