Trump Campaign Shatters Fundraising Records

Trump has raised a whopping $130 million
so far. To put it in perspective, at this time
in 2011 Obama had raised 4 million. Bush
had raised 6 million in 2003.

So much for Trump's base eroding..



An eroding base wouldn't necessarily equate to less money anyway.

Maybe the ones who are sticking around are donating more money.

Maybe corporations that back him are donating more money.

Maybe Russia is donating more money.

He still has some of the worst approval ratings in history.

Did Sheldon Adelson give another 100 million?


Quote:

Yet Adelson has spent the Trump era hustling to expand his gambling empire. With Trump occupying the White House, Adelson has found the greatest political ally hes ever had.
I would put Adelson at the very top of the list of both access and influence in the Trump administration, said Craig Holman of the watchdog group Public Citizen. Ive never seen anything like it before, and Ive been studying money in politics for 40 years.

And the other $30 million is laundered from Putin.

Talk about a President going bonkers. I love freedom of the Press

Trump Tweet
"The New York Times reporting is false. They are a true ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE!"

Trump is angry, he went to caps
what a clown

So Trump is a socialist now? He wants the government to dictate what is and isn't news, and if they don't fall in line they're an enemy of the people? Or does this make him a fascist? Or both?

A pro-capitalist president would allow the free-market to determine the direction and success of a journalistic medium. Why doesn't Trump want that unless he is anti-capitalist?

Apparently Roger Stone posted a picture of a federal judge online with crosshairs over it. He then deleted it.




Good luck with that.





No, No, No. He posted a logo that is commonly mistaken for the crosshairs of a gun. Just ask him. He'll splain it to you.

Maybe Trump is just wildly popular
with his base. Why wouldn't he be,
he made good an almost every
campaign promise.

He IS popular with his base. I didn't say he wasn't. But no, he HASN'T "made good on almost every campaign promise:"

Trump's campaign promises

Kept: 16.7%
Compromised: 10.8%
Broken: 17.6%
Stalled: 27.5%
In the Works: 27.5%

Vs. Obama's final tally (albeit not totally fair, since Trump's term is still in the works, and presumably has at least two more years.)

Kept: 48.4%
Compromised: 27.4%
Broken: 24.2%
