Exactly, but the man said he was self funding, which was a lie, and will continue to self fund, which is a lie. Of course, his supporters will always defend him saying it's unreasonable to think he can self fund during the general election.

Meanwhile, that's what he's preaching the ENTIRE time. People love him because he's supposedly anti establisment but all the sudden it's now okay he's establishment? It's okay he can be bought and paid for?

What the hell man?


He was self funding? You're saying he never used any of his money? I'm pretty sure that's the reason he ran such a low cost operation. In comparison, you can see the other candidates swimming in bribes/donations and practically throwing it away. I'm sure those billions of dollars are going to go to good use





“I’ll be putting up money, but won’t be completely self-funding,” the presumptive Republican nominee said in an interview Wednesday. Mr. Trump, who had largely self-financed his successful primary run, added that he would create a “world-class finance organization.” The campaign will tap his expansive personal Rolodex and a new base of supporters who aren’t on party rolls, two Trump advisers said.

Seems more like a man that still doesn't want to be bought or somehow beholden to major contributors.

Did I also read he has only 30 staffers? Yeah this is a scam.


How is it a scam that he was able to run his candidacy with less staff and less money than others?
I see it as smart.

And I see it as a good sign that he will do the same and do what he said he will with our federal budget.
He said he will cut wasteful spending.
If you can make do with less, and do it successfully, then why not?
That is exactly what our federal budget needs. Smarter, more efficient management and spending.

He's a fraud and I have no reason to believe that he's as wealthy as he says he is.

A true billionaire wouldn't create scams like Trump university to prey on poor people, not to mention Trump steaks, Trump Vodka and Trump magazine.

The guy is the definition of a snake oil salesman

Trump's campaign was built by, and is reliant on, the free media gained by Trump himself doing nutty and controversial things. If the media had blacked him out and gave him Sanders-level coverage he would not be a candidate, if they cut off that coverage, it will do massive damage to his campaign.

It seems like the exact sort of thing a true billionaire with no actual business sense would do to get even more rich.

Uhh...then maybe they should send him a penny a piece?

Floundering Trump campaign sends out ’emergency’ email to raise $100,000 by end of the day
www.rawstory.com...

The above is not something someone with "billions" does....and he either is unwilling to bet on himself like he said he would or he is unable to come up with the money....But has no issue begging "Emergency!" his cult followers for money....which by the way, he can pay himself with when he loses..the whole "loan" thing.

The Trump University deal was pushed by heavy duty Clinton supporters. This includes lawyers, judge, everyone. The few people who lodged complaints did not like that they did not make money. Well, many others made money with the information learned in the courses. The claims that they used hard sales tactics are also falsely exaggerated. The sales methods were no different than just about every other sales person uses in every business.

The other things you mention - well lots of investors try many things, and not everything is successful. That is how it works. Trump had hundreds of other successful businesses.

So, how wealthy do you think you have to be to have your own jets with your name on them, and property and businesses everywhere, and towers named after you, and thousands of employees?

Are you being obtuse? The email was sent to all his supporters...are you claiming he did not send it?

Uhh..OK...CNN?

That story was almost certainly false.
I am on the official Trump campaign mailing list, and never saw such an email.
Many others say the same thing.
If there was such an email, it was not from the official Trump campaign.

You might have a heart attack if you found out how the other candidates acquire and spend money.

Well he has to self fund and fund the other guys because that is his roll as nominee.

So we have the two most hatred candidates in history running against each other.

Actually, Trump did exceptionally well in the primaries. At a time when the Republicans were still stinking from the Bush/Cheney days and when in 08 people said the Republicans were dead and buried for many elections to come.. Trump totally obliterated the opposition in very popular fashion.

Just because he polarizes people doesn't mean hes so hated. Don't forget, DNC and Hilary have bought the media - you don't find it odd how the media deflects and ignores Hilary's woes, yet jump on trump for every word he says ?

Don't be fooled by the illusion!



One is under FBI investigation while the other may very well be a con man.


Trumps been one of the most front and centre media people, business men in the US for a long time. If he was a conman, dont you think he'd have been hand cuffed long ago?

I see we are in denial world here...It has been cited and reported verbatim by every media outlet left, right and center for the past 48 hours...and Trumps campaign has NOT denied they sent it out when repeatedly asked about it.

Of course it's real.
