    Questions to the Trump cucks:

    Why is the Donald's campaign so broke if he's so rich?

    Why did he funnel $6.2 million to Trump businesses from his campaign funds?

    Why is Trump begging for donations?

    Why does anyone believe he's qualified to be President when his biggest claim to fame is his business acumen and he's utterly incapable of running the business of a campaign?

    Asking for a friend.

    Extrapolating this idea.

    The USA is the largest most successful economy in history....why is it in ruins under President Trump?

    can he run without money?
    can he afford to finance it on his own?
    can he get enough free press to make up for this?
    if he takes money then is he any different than all the rest?
    could you see him not taking cash as a reason to vote for him-he would answer to no special interest?

    DONALD J. TRUMP FOR PRESIDENT- CAMPAIGN STATEMENT:

    The month of June represents the first full month of fundraising activity for the campaign and this will be reflected in the June FEC report. The campaign held its first campaign fundraising event on May 25th, 2016. To date, the campaign’s fundraising has been incredible and we continue to see a tremendous outpouring of support for Mr. Trump and money to the Republican Party. The positive response to our fundraising efforts so far is a further indication that the country does not want yet another corrupt politician like Crooked Hillary.

    Mr. Trump added, “If need be, there could be unlimited “cash on hand” as I would put up my own money, as I have already done through the primaries, spending over $50 million dollars. Our campaign is leaner and more efficient, like our government should be.”

    The special interests which control the GOP threw their money at Jeb Bush instead

    OP is insane.

    The whole allure to Trump is his stated ability to self fund his campaign, and in no way be beholden to any donors.

    Trump is battling with the entrenched elements of the media, the Republican and Democrat parties. His campaign isn't traditional and that includes fundraising.

    No fan of Trump but wasn't the complaint that there was too much money in politics now the complaint is that he doesn't have enough. :doh:

    Because you don't need to fundraise or generate press when you own your own plane, a hotel in every city worth a shit, and every story the media writes involves you without even trying.

    Why the fuck do politicians need hundreds of millions to get their names out there? We know who they are and we know what they stand for.

    All of this fundraising nonsense is a pre-cursor to, and acceptance of, a government who budgets will claim to spend $500 on a hammer or $10,000 on a toilet.

    It's crooked accounting.
