The Trump Campaign is almost broke, but apparently The Donald has been siphoning off roughly 20% of campaign expenses to his own businesses.
But that’s nothing. (See Below) Donald Trump actually has himself on the campaign payroll as a salaried employee!
Just imagine what he could do with the Executive Branch budget.
Donald Trumpâ€™s campaign is almost broke, and is paying an unusual amount of money to Trump-owned businesses. Thatâ€™s according to the presumptive Republican presidential nomineeâ€™s FEC filing, details of which were released Monday night.
The report provided a number of rather shocking facts, including that his campaign raised just $3.1 million in May compared to Democratic rival Hillary Clintonâ€™s $27 million.
In comparison, Mitt Romneyâ€™s campaign raised $86.5 million in May during the 2012 presidential race. And on Monday night alone, Clinton raised about $1.6 million at a celebrity-studded fundraiser in New York City.
Another eyebrow-raising tidbit: Of the $6.7 million the Trump campaign spent in May, nearly 20% went to Trump-owned businesses or family members.
Furthermore, the filing suggests that Trump himself is drawing a salary from the campaign, which would be highly unusual.
The campaign also spent $208,000 on hats.
The phrase “Crooked as a snake with appendicitis” comes to mind.
