ORLANDO, Fla. ― After years of claiming he was so rich he didn’t need anyone else’s money for his political campaigns, Donald Trump is officially asking small-dollar donors ― many of them lower income and older ― to send him cash, potentially hurting the Republican Party’s small-dollar program.

The request was tucked in near the end of his first public appearance since leaving the presidency Jan. 20, a 90-minute speech Sunday that largely recycled his oft-repeated lies about the November election and his record in office.

“There’s only one way to contribute to our efforts, to elect ‘America first’ Republican conservatives. And in turn, to make America great again. And that’s through Save America PAC and Donald J Trump dot com,” he told his Conservative Political Action Conference audience.

6. Trump's absolute dedication to grifting suckers is truly amazing.

It never stops. It never rests. There's always a need for more dollars no matter what.

9. It's clear evidence that Trump is hurting financially.

And a strong hint as to how to choke the life out of his 2024 plans - go for his cash flow!

Maybe point out to potential donors two things: What they may need to forego to donate, and what their dollars are wasted on?

Slowly but surely - strangle the GQP!

17. He is taking advantage of HR 1.

There is a provision in the proposed law which gives politicians a 6 to 1 match from the federal government for contributions from small contributors ($200 or less). He is taking advantage of the law (as will others very soon).
