Adelson was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom after donating $500k to a legal fund to help Trump aides.

In October 2018, GOP megadonors Sheldon and Miriam Adelson donated $500,000 to a fund that would cover the legal expenses of former Trump aides in the Russia investigation. According to Think Progress, Miriam Adelson was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom a month later.

The donation to the legal fund also followed a history of the Adelsons contributing to Trump such as to his 2016 presidential campaign and to various GOP candidates and aligned PACs. Although many view the award as a thank you from President Trump, she apparently received the award as a “committed doctor, philanthropist, and humanitarian.”
