Clinton raises $68.5 million in June: campaign

“Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in June raised more than $68.5 million for her campaign and the Democratic Party, the campaign said on Friday. Of the total raised, more than $40.5 million was brought in for her own election war chest and an additional $28 million was raised for the Democratic National Committee and state parties across the country………..

As Trump is hiring new staff to fill the spots of those resigning……

And has yet worked on a system of fund raising………..

With only $1.3 million in the bank…….Trump is broke………

And as time ticks away......

Trump will never raise the amount of money needed to run a successful national campaign top run for president………


Dead man walking

The trouble with any of this, and I don't stand 100% behind this estimate because I'm a bit flimsy on the science of it, but Trump has managed to get $2 Billion worth of free media already.

The biggest issues with the lack of money are purely logistical for him, campaign offices, venue management, accommodation for him and his staff, transportation, I have no idea what the FEC regulations would be on how he could use his own properties in terms of filling that void (assuming the charges could all be handled internally by his companies via General Ledger, or he charges himself at internal rates and reimburse himself through his campaign).

But as far as the classic need for money for advertisement, he doesn't actually need it.

Given what we've seen already, no one can ever, or will ever, no matter how much money they have, beat Trump for airtime.
