Politico reports on rumors that Trump would take some very large amount of money to simply walk away from the GOP nomination.
How much would it cost to get Donald Trump to give up his presidential run and walk away?
â€œI bet if someone offered him $150 million to drop out, he would,” one former Trump adviser told POLITICO, unprompted, during an interview Friday.
Asked about whether Trump would drop, another former Trump adviser, Jim Dornan said he believes the presumptive GOP nominee would cut a deal. â€œYeah, probably,â€ Dornan, a veteran Republican operative who worked for Trump last spring on an abortive effort to set up a super PAC, replied via text message â€” adding there would be plenty of interest in buying him out. â€œThe Kochs would be the first in line.â€
Trump himself says itâ€™s a ridiculous proposition and that heâ€™s not a fan of the question.
