Donald Trump Con Job Campaign Unravels In Latest FEC Filing
Many observers have noted that presumtive Republican nomineee Donald Trump has been running a con job of a campaign from the very beginning. The latest filing of his campaign with the Federal Elections Commission gives concrete proof that Trump is using his constituents to bankroll his businesses.
In May 2016, Donald Trump raised a paltry $3.1 million with $1 million of that being paid to various Trump companies. According to the AP, overall, he has spent 10% of campaign expenses on his own businesses.
In other words: he is directly making money off his campaign.
That bears repeating: Donald Trump is using his own presidential campaign to pay himself via his own businesses.
The con job maybe coming to an end though. As of now, the campaign only has $1.3 million cash on hand for an election that could cost hundreds of millions of dollars.
