Republicans Stunned After Trump Reveals That His Presidential Campaign Is Broke


…-…When Donald Trump told Republicans that his campaign had money, it was a lie. In meeting with Senate Republicans, Trump's campaign privately admitted that they have no money and will not be able to run television ads until after the GOP convention in July…-…


The Washington Examiner reported:
Donald Trump’s campaign has alerted Senate Republicans that he won’t have much money to spend fending off attacks from Hillary Clinton over the next couple months.

The notice came when Paul Manafort, Trump’s senior advisor, met with a group of Senate Republican chiefs of staff for lunch last week, sources familiar with the meeting told the Washington Examiner. The admission suggests that Trump will be far more dependent on the GOP brass for money than he has led voters to believe……….
Trump camp concedes it's low on money | Washington Examiner

And Trump has also let it be known he is not spending any more of his money on the campaign. And is expected to pay himself back the $20+ million dollars he loaned the campaign from the “current small donations”…………

……….. This time, Trump has bankrupted his presidential campaign and is expecting Republicans to pick up the tab.”

Remember when I said Trumpster was no billionaire……or had enough money to run a national campaign for the presidency…………

What an opportunity for the #Stop Trump folks………..just work to cut off his campaign donations from the “Fat Cats”………..And you can bet he will not be able to raise a billion dollars in small donations from which IMHO cheapskate followers……….

Donald Trump broke? I wish I were so broke ;-)

Donald's stratagem is two-prong:
> Real estate is an illiquid asset, where untimely liquidation can be costly
> If I offer to help you with your mortgage payments, you aren't likely to refuse (hopefully of course, your home was a cash purchase)

This story simply underlines the need to see the mans taxes. I suspect - as do many others - that he is far short of the multi billionaire he proclaims to be and the whole wealth schtick is simply part oft he image. Sure - he is rich. Sure - he has money. But not what he brags about.

And this story only emphasizes that.

Trump has always been the boastful guy who brings a yardstick to a penis measuring contest and then you find out that a six inch ruler would have been more than enough. ;)

Wut?

There is no connection between the two, so just how do you reason such?

Its hard to imagine anyone is swayed by television ads. Trump gets so much free publicity that he may not need to spend a dime and still win.

OK just to be clear, here is the title of the OP again

Republicans Stunned After Trump Reveals That His Presidential Campaign Is Broke

Notice where it says campaign and not personally?

If you had his money, would you spend your last dime on a presidential campaign?

The reality is that he's vastly exaggerated his net worth for decades, and not much of it is liquid. One reason he doesn't want to publicly release his taxes is because it will almost certainly show how much he lies about his wealth.

However, the most conservative estimates of his net worth suggest he's worth over $2 billion. He really should have no problem loaning or giving $100 million to his campaign.

He doesn't need big donors, and taking donor funds is corrupt, and he's said he's wealthy enough to fund his campaign, so... now he's basically begging for campaign cash. It's just more Trump snow-job bull****.

I find it difficult to believe anything Trump claims.

he'll have enough money. this will almost certainly be the most expensive election to date, and it will be well funded by those who want to purchase the outcome one way or the other.

Apparently you do not understand what he said and are just going off of your own bias. He said he would release them after the audit.


He really should have no problem loaning or giving $100 million to his campaign.
That is actually irrelevant to what was reported.


, so... now he's basically begging for campaign cash. It's just more Trump snow-job bull****.
Clearly you do not understand what has been reported and are just going off your own bias.

He said he was self funding and now that source is suspect. Lets see the and taxes.

Visbek in #7 said it well.

His self funding has absolutely nothing to do with your desire to see his taxes.

He can always fall back on those donations never made to veterans. Or break another promise and start raising money.

Get a grip ! The RNC spent $120,000,000 in negative ads in efforts to stop him from being the nominee , so they should start footing the bill if they don't want to see the corrupt , lying , arrogant, condescending, double talking, manipulative witch get into the WH ! Don't you think the witch gets money from the dems ? :shock:

Yep, we're confronted yet again with the lessor of two evils this election cycle

Trumps not my first choice by any means, but given the alternative I have little choice but to support him and hope for the best

Our economy simply can't absorb a 3rd Obama term, which is essentially what we would be getting in Hillary

Sanders is a avowed Socialist who has no clue what he's doing and doesn't have a chance im hell anyway so whats a proud Conservative like me to do ?

Hope for the best and back Trump

Big deal - he's saying what he has to in order to get the GOP donors to pony up money.

When Elon Musk was in divorce court, you heard him saying he was broke and had to borrow money from friends - look, that's how they roll.

You know what I call wasting a vote? Throwing it away on a candidate that you don't like, because the political elites like to keep our options limited.

Find a third party candidate you like - I imagine a guy like you would find a lot to like in the Constitutional Party - and you vote for them instead of the major candidates. So what if the candidate you liked most lost? At least you didn't bend over for the electoral college like far too many people do. And there's one advantage to voting third party over simply not voting at all: your vote counts as a "**** you and your bull**** candidate" in the popular vote. If someone you can't stand gets elected, well big whoop. That was already going to happen. But you voted for your ideals, not for some authoritarian liberal (because let's be honest, both of the "popular" candidates are exactly that) that either a distant, uncaring party elite or an uninformed, populist horde is trying to force upon us.

Wrong as usual.
Nothing in this story indicates any such thing. Nor have you pointing any out when asked how you reasoned it did.

iLOL
Hilarious.
1. You made your thoughts about this well known when you absurdly claimed the story underlines then need to see his taxes.
2. Every inner thought? iLOL Delusional.

why is it that you have the utter gall to assume that you can decide what a person can decide when they read a news story regarding the implications of its content?

As usual, you are reading way to much into what was said.

So again you have made your n thoughts well known by what you said.


Now are you going to answer the on-topic question asked of you or not?
