Report: GOP mega-donor Adelson to give Trump up to $100 million.


Billionaire Republican donor Sheldon Adelson is reportedly willing to give Donald Trump as much as $100 million for his presidential campaign -- a purported record-setting amount for the wealth casino magnate.

Adelson pledged the amount to Trump, the presumptive GOP presidential nominee, during a meeting last week in New York, two GOP sources told The New York Times, which first reported the story.

Trump will indeed need the support. Much of the billionaire businessman’s success in the primary race came from his ability to fund his own campaign and tell voters that he is not beholden to corporate, Wall Street or lobbyists’ interests.

Guess Trump will have to come up with a new marketing campaign now that he wont be self funding his campaign any longer.

I think a lot of people bought into the idea that he wasnt for sale.

'Self-funded' Donald Trump preparing to seek big-donor money.

Wonder what he will owe Sheldon Adelson?

Adelson has been known to boast that he is still “the richest Jew in the world.”


Adelson’s support for the Jewish state is so intense that he opposes American efforts to broker a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, arguing that the Palestinians are “an invented people” whose “purpose … is to destroy Israel”; rather than negotiate with Iran, Adelson has called for a preemptive nuclear strike against the Islamic Republic.

Trump really isn't for sale, but the problem he has realized is that the Democrat party IS FOR SALE, so to be able to compete with that kind of money he absolutely is going to need some big contributors to be able to make a successful campaign.
It isn't like he will use his position later to funnel kickbacks and graft to known corrupt people and dummy corporations like the Clinton Campaign has done.

No kidding...the last figure I got was the Hillary democrat party had a war chest of 2 billion to fight off all comers. I keep thinking Trump will at least get matching funds for what he has already spent... dunno..?

Theyre all for sale (except the Pauls).

Trump is wealthy so he has much more to lose than the average nobody and will do what he has to in order to protect that wealth.

Trump isn't, he can make back whatever money he personally spends in less than a year by just spitting in the wind. He isn't worried about it at all. He is also smart to not destroy his own wealth just for his campaign, and then he has a way to make money later by still having his own money to make money WITH.

Why? So we just need to act like he is going to take lots of money and not owe anybody down the line?

Sounds to me like he is just pulling a bait and switch. If he is worth the 10 the billion, why does he need the help?

You sure are clueless when it comes to Trump aren't you? That's all Trump has done is sell himself his whole life but why waste time with facts because he was even able to convince his followers that he been self funding his campaign. Of course the Dems are for sale they saw how much the GOP made when they sold out so they thought they would get their piece of the pie.

I look forward to all the Soros whiners who constantly cry when he gives the Dems a few million let's see what they say about an anti-American like Adelson giving Trump 100 million. Btw he gave Romney the same amount.

His self-funding enters into my support of him in absolutely no way.

I like his ideas on how this country should be run.

Why shouldn't he have financial supporters?

Everyone else does.

Don't be envious of the amount.

Trump donated 317K to his own campaign the other millions of his money was a loan to his campaign which means he can pay himself back from that 100 mill donation.

No different that Romney did. Next election we should see the other billionaires running for president.

So you don't find it all disturbing that one of his fundamental positions, him not taking money from any special interest, is now no longer the case?

Crazy how right he was when he said it doesn't matter what he says or does, his followers don't care.

Nah, I just see his methods of showing gratitude to his contributors will be much different. Unlike Obama writing billion dollar checks to fake energy corporations who cash the check and then file bankruptcy the next day.

You know, things like that.

So you use half truths to try and justify your guy lying to you? That is fine.

I guess you don't want to see that Trump is no better than Obama and selling you on his version of hope and change.

We will see how clueless I am when Trump wins the presidency and then runs wild over all your pet liberal plans that have done nothing but divide and destroy this great country.

We have already seen Obama's "hope and change" and how destructive to small business and freedom and liberty it has been. It couldn't get any worse with Trump since he despises the Obama method. Wait and see

I am unaware of any next day bankruptcies that you speak of, but I am aware of the massive success of loaning moneys to various renewable energy firms from his administration.

The program has made a profit of nearly $1 billion in interest and is set to make another $5 billion more.


Maybe Trump will turn the white house into anther Taj mahal casino for Adelson since his went bankrupt.

Trump is y'alls messiah and it is hilarious. He can't do any wrong, it just gets rationalized by his supporters.
His main point this entire campaign is that he wouldn't take any special interest funding, and yet here he is going back on his word....again.

But sure keep telling your self it will be different, what ever helps you sleep at night.

We were supposed to choose either Jeb Bush or Hillary Clinton. Both Sanders and Trump are a problem to TPTB. i like Sanders, but not some of his plans. I dont like Trump, but like some of his plans, As for Hillary and obama and the bushes.... They can all take a flying leap of the nearest cliff for all I care, in fact, that would make my day
