    So much for self-funding himself.

    Billionaire Republican donor Sheldon Adelson is reportedly willing to give Donald Trump as much as $100 million for his presidential campaign -- a purported record-setting amount for the wealth casino magnate.

    Adelson pledged the amount to Trump, the presumptive GOP presidential nominee, during a meeting last week in New York, two GOP sources told The New York Times, which first reported the story.

    Trump will indeed need the support. Much of the billionaire businessman’s success in the primary race came from his ability to fund his own campaign and tell voters that he is not beholden to corporate, Wall Street or lobbyists’ interests.

    However, his own wealth and small-donor contributions would be no match for those of Hillary Clinton and the Democratic machine behind her if the front-running Clinton becomes Trump’s general election opponent.

    Trump has since being declared the presumptive nominee on May 3 met with Washington Republicans to begin coordinating fundraising efforts for his general election bid and those of other Republican candidates on November ballots.

    The Times reports that the Las Vegas-based Adelson’s commitment to Trump will result in Adelson scaling back his contributions to congressional Republicans, who are in a tough fight to keep control of the Senate.

    Stop it.

    Donald said that he was self funding this whole campaign so that he wouldn't have to answer to anyone but the American people who elect him.

    This is some of that libtard trash, no way Donald is taking any money. He told us all he wouldn't

    Cover of the NYT this morning states that Trump is taking the money.

    If fact, I read this morning that the self funding of the primaries was actually 'loans' to himself that he can get back once he gets funding for the General.

    Sounded like double dipping, in that he's paying himself for the chartered aircraft.

    There's a difference between accepting a generous donation and begging for it. I must have gotten a spam email every day from Ted Cruz and even some how get em from Hillary begging for 5 or 10 dollars a time.

    And they always say "Sent from Teds phone." Or "Sent directly from Hillary". Like its a legit message directly from them. :jj:
