Trump fundraising for legal challenges would also pay down campaign debt

Trump fundraising for legal challenges would also pay down campaign debt

President Trump’s campaign is currently soliciting donations from supporters for an ’election defense fund’ designed to ’defend the integrity’ of the election. However, the fine print shows that the full amount contributed does not go toward the purpose claimed. Instead, atleast 50% of each donation will go to paying off the campaign’s debts. So far, dozens of emails have gone out since Wednesday.

I am so tired of the media. Beto, Abrams and the failed FL governor (can't remember his name but he does crack) all did the exact same thing. 0 stories covering it. A message for all you dems out there. We are tired of the hypocrisy and playing under two sets of rules. "We want unity" while we put those that disagree with us on lists...ya know like Stalin. "Why can't you accept a free and fair election" after 4 years of failing to accept an election (that was so fair that 3 years of investigations found no wrong doing by the campaign). "Trump is a tyrant" but he hasn't used the federal government to usurp power through the coronavirus. "Covid is too bad we can't go to the polls" dancing in the street in celebration is fine though. Among many other examples.

So? The money donated to BLM has found its way to the DNC. BLM didn't even have fine print to read. Lying, cheating, and stealing aren't virtues and trying to act like the Democrats are so pure and innocent is yet another lie.

One of the emails is supposed to read “This is your FINAL NOTICE. So far, you've ignored all our emails asking you to join us in DEFENDING THE ELECTION. You've ignored team Trump, Eric, Lara, Don, the Vice President, AND you've even ignored the President of the United States.” Hahahahahahaha....

Trump donors are not going to have a problem with having the destination of any excess funds clarified. It’s not like you expect to get a refund of any dregs.

Maybe Trump should try pulling himself up by his bootstraps, live within his means, and not beg for handouts.

If it were a grift, surely it wouldn't be in the fine print, they money would just be funnelled to his campaign. Like Democrats do. If anything, he's being more honest. Dems are just mad that people will donate to Trump even if they know "It's a grift! Reeeeee!". Trump supporters are just as incredulous that people would vote for Biden, then cry when he says he's going to lock the country down. Guess you didn't read the fine print in his manifesto?

I'm really tired of the divisive news being the only news. Can we PLEASE stop acting like everyone doesn't do this? Stop acting like one politician is better than another because reasons. Trump was a con before he became President, stealing from people and getting bailed out by elites, and that hasn't changed. Remember what he ran on in 2016? I remember! Chants of "lock her up, lock her up!" What happened after that? He won and said that's not gonna happen, that's just something you say to get elected. Odd. But at least he was honest about it. Lawyers write the fine print. Trump is not a lawyer. I'm not saying he has nothing to do with it by a long shot. But his campaign is likely more responsible. Trump is a good speaker, in that he provides good hype. Even if the substance of the hype doesn't come to fruition. Guess what though... Every politician does the same thing. They're more interested in lining their pockets than actually doing anything for the people. They don't give a damn who they hurt in the process. So keep acting like your "guy" is better than the other's. Quit acting like the country or the world would be so much better with your "guy" than some other person's "guy" because they (don't) do something. At the end of the day, you've given up your rights and control to the government that doesn't give a damn about you. It doesn't matter who wins this, this country is as good as done. It's just a matter of time until we get there. Just remember, "New Normal".

I donated, and I'm 100% fine with the money going literally anywhere in Trumps wallet. He's going to be spending personal money on both his campaign and the trials to make up whatever donations don't cover. Since his supporters want him to do both, why should it bother us that our donations go to help pay for both. Even if 100% of our donations went to his campaign debt, if he was still as financially committed to seeing these trials through, it would make no difference to me or literally anyone who donated.

Is this attack by the media not obvious enough? They've been pointing out things that most politicians do, as if their not normal. Because people don't pay attention to the details of stuff like this normally, especially after the election. Nothing to see here. Remember when Gore was fighting for the office? He did everything he could, drug it out till December. You guys need to chill. Lol. Look up confirmation bias, and cognative dissonance. Seriously, if you have time for this, you have time to learn the biggest reasons for bias. Nothing partisan about the topics, just learn a bit of fact, then back to the tabloids.

Well the good news is that all those store shop owners that boarded up in anticipation of the right losing their minds after Trump lost,.... well it never happened. I think they can take all that plywood back to Home Depot. However they might want to wait to see how the courts rule. 2020 has been such a wacky year it might be President Trump AGAIN. In that case the left will absolutely burn everything down. God I long for the days when impetuous little children just held their breath until they passed out when they didn’t get their way. But some fool told them they were wise, and entitled then gave them a Bic lighter and a can of gasoline. That fool is everybody on the left. Yeah on second thought you better leave that plywood up. You know just in case some peaceful protesters show up.

I've checked the TMAGA website, and it says "5% of each contribution to DJTP [is] to be designated toward 2020 general election debt retirement," not 60% as the WSJ is claiming. And I'm pretty sure you can't change the terms of donation once you've already received donors. https://donate.donaldjtrump.com/lets-keep-fighting
