During the primary season, trump’s campaign rented office space in trump tower. Since trump was, if we were to believe his claim, self-funding his campaign, that meant trump the candidate was paying trump the landlord $3500 each month.
After the primaries, two important things happened. First, a day or two after it was certain that he would be the Republican nominee, he appointed a fund-raiser. No more talk of self-funding; that was just a manipulative gimmick that he used to deceive his “base” supporters. Second, the rent rose to $170,000 each month. So now the trump campaign is using donor money to pay trump a ridiculous rent. That means donor money is being transferred from campaign financing to profit for a trump business.
And yet the trumpies hang on. . .
