If Trump is a real billionaire, why does he keep asking his poor followers for donations?

    Go to his hotel in DC.  He's been trying to sell it but no buyers. The place is a ghost town. No democrat/supporter will eat or stay there. Millions of dollars lost for the foreseeable future. His golf club in scotland is the same for the foreseeable future. Then his loan for Deutsche Bank is coming up. That's over $400 million. Plus his court cases. That will be millions. If he pays his lawyers.

    Because he knows his gullible followers will gladly hand it over to him... and he's not going to turn down free money.

    Did you know that he took NO donations when he ran for the Presidential Primaries? When was the LAST time that Actually happened? When a politician Didn't NEED the People's Money to get where THEY wanted to be?

    He probably is but a lot of it will come from loans and fraudulent activity.

    What we currently know about Trump finances is that he lost $1 Billion over 10 years and pays just $700 in taxes. No wonder he needs loans from Russian mobsters and kisses Putin's butt.

    Trump is a failed businessman turned con man. Trump is broke, living off loans.

    Why spend his money when he can spend yours?
