8. And he lied to his so called base to get the money

told them it was to secure the border while the fine print said it was for his re election campaign.
He really is an unethical uncouth pig.

11. What will come out eventually is

It was intended to raise legal defense funding , because he won't be running, and he'll pocket all the money donors give him, not use for any election. Just like he conned networks into showing this rerun of immigration made up crisis to use to accomplish this now, and all just another scam , an act from trump to use for his own personal gains by getting donors to give more with. He's reduced himself to a tv preacher begging for more money now. trump is nothing more than a infomercial spokesman salesman trying to get you to buy into his fantasy world, nothing more. He'll use all donors money for his legal bills.

12. I hope Schmidt is right on this one.

He says that Trump has jumped the shark and that more Republicans will soon jump the ship and join the Democrats in a call to open our government.

14. If he asked for campaign donations or any donations (I did not watch)

it is a campaign speech and he should have to pay for the time.
Are the media networks going to give him free air time to campaign again?

17. His team sent requests for building the wall before and after the speech

It was not mentioned in the speech itself, but evidently the fine print in the donation request said it was for his re-election. So his team may have found a way around the illegality of it. And, of course they lied about what the money was for.
