According to newsweek.com, Paula White, who is part of Donald Trumps evangelical advisory committee, is asking for the first of peoples money:
Donald Trump’s spiritual adviser has suggested that people send her money in order to transform their lives, or face divine consequences.
Paula White, who heads up the president’s evangelical advisory committee, suggested making a donation to her ministries to honor the religious principle of “first fruit,” which she said is the idea that all firsts belong to God, including the first harvest and, apparently, the first month of your salary.
“Right now I want you to click on that button, and I want you to honor God with his first fruits offering,” she said in a video shared to her website, in which she encourages her followers to donate to her ministries to get blessings from God.

So I wondered what it was she actually said… It seems newsweek were watching the video that was on Paula Whites website:
Short version. Give money to my organisation. Good things will happen. Give more money, you’ll get more freebies from me.
It may be worth pointing out that a similar video was posted at the start of 2016, showing that the above is not a new way of thinking.
While I feel there are a few holes in what she says, can I suggest that if you do feel you should give something, how about giving
me your local charity / local church something?
