Trump businesses made millions off Republican groups

Source: MSN/Tribune

WASHINGTON ó President Donald Trumpís U.S. businesses have received at least $15.1 million in revenue from political groups and federal agencies since 2015, according to a report to be released Monday.

The money went to Trumpís airplanes, hotels, golf courses and even a bottled water company during the presidential campaign and the first 15 months of his presidency, according to a compilation of records of the spending by Public Citizen obtained by McClatchy.

But it was Trumpís campaign itself that spent the most by far ó about 90 percent, or $13.4 million.

It also includes more than $717,000 from the Republican National Committee; nearly $595,000 from Trump Victory, the joint fundraising committee set up by the RNC and Trumpís campaign; and $9,000 from the National Republican Senate Committee.

4. The Republican suckers were fleeced.

I thought it was hilarious that Trump rented the GOP space in his property that was not even finished due to a lack of renters and then even had the nerve to raise the rent after the moved in. He ranted how he had billions and didn't need any funds but in reality was charging the GOP for his election. He is a master con-man.

8. Suckers donating $10/20/50 to Trump Campaign don't know it funnels right into his biz.


20% of Trump Campaign spending has been on Donald Trump attorney fees. I don't know if that is really legal.

In any case, they haven't got their money's worth from incompetent "lawyers" like Michael Cohen.
