Donald Trump has actually made a huge deal about totally self-funding his main project (although he hasnt), but in an interview today he stated that he would not be self-funding his general election project versus (probably) Hillary Clinton.
Trump told The Wall Street Journal, I’ll be putting up money, but won’t be entirely self-funding, as I did during the primaries.
He stated his plan is to make his project into a world-class finance company to make sure he has the resources to fightto eliminate Clinton, even if it implies accepting the special interests he has actually so frequently decried on the campaign trail.
Trump likewise stated this on NBC Nightly News tonight:
Well tryaim to raise over $1 billion, which is whats going to be essential. I hear the Democrats perhaps will get as high as $2 billion. However we desirewish to raise approximately $1 billion, maybeperhaps even over that. Im not even sure thats needed because I have a big voice.
He showed that hell be dealing with the RNC to raise all that cash. So I think they will have treated him fairly after all
