Default RNC pulls worst fundraising numbers in recent years

Kinda looks like tRump is having a negative effect on billionaires kicking in the $bucks.Sad.

<Even as talk in political circles has focused on the Trump campaign’s apparent reliance on the Republican National Committee for much of its basic voter mobilization effort in November, reports filed with the FEC over the weekend show the RNC having arguably the worst fundraising July in at least four presidential cycles.>

This comment in the comments section says it MUCH MORE succinctly than I ever could.

Absolute liberal garbage, written by an absolute liberal idiot. The party doesn't need as much, as Trump self funds.

OF course the liberal idiot who wrote this is just a typical liberal, who's hit piece doesn't include anyting but his twisted idea's.

Garbage not worth posting.

Regards, Kirk

If memory serves me correctly Donald Trump has only donated about $1 million in cash to his own presidential election campaign so far (excluding what he may have spent on the Republican primary).

He's not even turning money over to the RNC for the RNC fundraisers he's been engaged in so far.

BTW I heard over the weekend that he wasn't even on the ballot in Minnesota yet and today is the last day he can put himself on the ballot.

Based upon the corruption, brutality, inhumanity, immorality, dishonesty, and incompetence of the Trump administration the White House is the dirtiest house in America and there's no known cleanser that with remove the stains of the Trump Administration.

Trump makes Minnesota ballot at last minute

It didn't have anything to do with Trump...The Minn. Republican Party didn't have their electors set up...

Why should Trump be concerned about GOP fundraising?

Firstly he has been self funded so far.

And why should he turn money over to them. They keep threatening not to fund his bid for the Presidency?
RNC considers cutting cash to Trump - POLITICO

http://www.bing.com/search?q=RNC+fun...t=12&FORM=PERE

Just to sound as though they had a keen mind, people will post any little negative tidbit they find about THE Donald. They should stop.

As for Billionaires resisting their donations to Trump, and instead sending it to Hillary, shouldn't that tell the country something about the Left. About to whom Hillary and the DNC will owe favors?

Ask yourself this question,

Who pays Hillary and Bill $160K to speak before their big wigs? Where do they donate those funds?


Now ask,,,;
Who pays the Donald for speaking fees? To Whom does the Donald donate those fees?

Isn't it amazing that when the Republicans beat Democrats in donations, it's because the donors are evil and the politicians are in their pocket, but when the Democrats beat the Republican in donations, it's because those donors are intelligent, innocent lambs helping to spread the joy of Progressivism...

So nice to have built-in excuses...

Why would it even matter?

Does anyone seriously think that Minnesota is going Republican this year?

Or that there is any serious chance of this happening?

Not just billionaires. The Republican base, which contains many in the middle class, is disgusted that Borhner and then Ryan gave Obama everything he wanted and never reined in Obama's spending on things he constitutionally didn't have the power to do (like bringing in tons of refugees to be supported by taxpayers and now giving millions to a "green" fund). The GOP has made itself irrelevant by aligning itself so closely with the Democrats. I say good riddance to the GOP and eventually I hope to see an end to the Dems as well. The two-party system stinks and has become totally corrupt.
