Donald Trump’s Campaign Lacking Cash

October 28, 2016

Is this not the most ironic news story today from the election?

We are 11 days before Election Day and Donald Trump, a man who claims to have more than $10 billion and is a real estate titan, faces a massive cash deficit in his campaign. The latest campaign finance reports put Hillary Clinton ahead in the money race by nearly $100 million.. That is simply stunning news for those who follow politics.  Trump has promised to spend $100 million of his own money, but so far, he’s only spent a little over $56 million, just recently put a paltry $31,000 into his campaign during the first few weeks of October.  That is insane!

But get this!

What makes this more crazy  is that according to a review of [FEC] filings only one of Trump’s children showed up on a list of itemized receipts for the campaign: Eric. On Sept. 7, 2016, Eric Trump appears to have contributed $376.20 listed only as ‘meeting expense: meals.’ It appears that money was later refunded. Ivanka Trump, who previously contributed to Hillary Clinton and John McCain in 2007 and 2008 respectively, does not appear to have given to her father.
