And what does Sheldon Adelson get for his $100 million?

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.

I bet they will be kicking in more before it is all said and done.

You bought that hook line and sinker.
FactCheck.org disputes Trump’s claims, pointing out that his 2015 year-end filing in January shows $19.4 million in campaign income, with $12.6 million of that coming in via candidate loans. Thus, approximately one-third of his campaign funds have arrived via donations. The year-end filing shows $1.6 million in itemized individual contributions and another $4.9 million in unitemized ones.
It is also important to remember that as the bulk of Trump’s campaign contribution is in loans instead of donations, link
Guess Trump will have to come up with a new marketing campaign now that he wont be self funding his campaign any longer.

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..?
When did he ever say his plan was only to self fund thru the primary?
It is funny how the dame people will take that number and talk about how it shows she is being bought, but of trump gets the money he is just fighting the Democrats.

The difference, is that Trump would take the money and still do whatever the hell Trump will do...LOL.
