Trump's campaign reveals just how very little money they have left

Source: Raw Story


Sarah K. Burris
September 20, 2020

Former Vice President Joe Biden announced that his campaign brought in a massive campaign haul during the Democratic convention last month ahead of the August campaign finance filing. President Donald Trump has attempted to keep his campaign numbers hidden with a late filing, and by Sunday evening it was clear why.

Trumpís total haul for August, when he got a weekís worth of free media from the Republican convention, was just $61.7 million. The campaign spent almost all of it, $61.2 million.

The campaign still has about $900,000 in debt. His cash on hand is just $121 million in the bank.

Trumpís big donor support has dropped by 61 percent as he refuses to turnout for virtual events.

And didnít use taxpayer money and properties for campaigning

They still haven't paid their bill to El Paso. I think it may result in a lien someday. We could really use that dough.

7. Also keep in mind

These are August numbers. They don't reflect the Atlantic article, don't reflect RBG, don't reflect two major hurricanes and Western Wildfires, nor hitting the 200K milestone for Covid-19, nor the disastrous Trump Town Hall. They may very well be in the red by now.

They are probably being very efficient ... at moving money out of the campaign into their own pockets.

And $900,000 in debt? Who in the right mind would loan this campaign money?

3. Bad News For Downstream GOP

Airtime for political ads tends to get bought up in blocks with upstream candidates often book-ending downstream candidates. When those don't get filled, the downstream candidates often end up being paired with the other party's upstream supports, weakening their effectiveness further. The funding gap is likely to also be reflective of federal and state GOP spending, which means fewer dollars going downticket. This is turning into a perfect storm for the GOP.

Trump agreed to something like $10 million. Ended up paying $2-3 and told the guy to either take it or spend years in court. Iím sure thereís many more people with similar stories.

And no, I don't feel a bit sorry for him, he's done far too much to piss me off.

56. At least Trump is sticking to his business plan of losing money, whatever he does.

ON EDIT: Heíll just come to expect the media to cover his WH pressers, heíll schedule more of them, and heíll use them as campaign rallies. I think he thinks thatís his fallback. The media should just refuse to air them, or make sure Biden gets equal time.

where i imagine most of the republican money is held and spent these days. Gop donors don't want to give directly to trump, to stop him from taking it for himself.
