Trump Reelection Campaign Raised $30M in First Quarter: It’s being reported from several sources that President Trump's reelection campaign has raised more than $30 million in the first quarter of 2019, edging out his top two Democratic rivals combined.
Wow, the Trump team’s already raised 30 million rubles? That quite impressive. And while that was just a joke, what’s not a joke is that the $30 million figure just happens to be the exact amount Russian spy Maria Butina gave to the NRA to funnel into the Trump campaign during the 2016 election.
That said, even if $30 million sounds like quite a lot of dough, let’s not forget that a good chunk of that stash will need to be diverted over to cover those $15,000-a-month hush payments used to silence former Trump staffers who were axed in earlier purges. Even so, I’m guessing Trump will still have more than enough cash left over to commission one or two new oil portraits of himself.
Besides, Trump may not even need all that much campaign cash this next election cycle anyway. I mean, as more information finally begins to surface from the numerous fraud and criminal investigations going on - by the time 2020 rolls around, there’s a pretty decent chance that Trump and his criminal family of grifters may actually find themselves running “from the law” - not for “reelection.”
