Trump Fundraising Overhead Soaks Up 91 Cents Of Each Donor Dollar​


Donald Trump’s political fundraising operation has been spending 91 cents on overhead expenses for every dollar it brings in, according to Federal Election Commission filings reported by Bloomberg.

Trump raised a fat $24 million in the third quarter — a 41% increase over the previous quarter — but spent $22 million to do so, the new figures show.

Raising the money apparently became far more difficult and expensive (or fundraisers were pocketing larger salaries) as troubles mount for Trump. The FBI confiscated several boxes of White House documents — including classified and top secret information — from Trump’s Mar-a-Lago compound in August. In September, New York Attorney General Letitia James (D) filed a $250 million civil lawsuit alleging business fraud against Trump and his three oldest children.

Trump has used both investigations to plead for money from his supporters.

Small donations of less than $200 accounted for $9.8 million of Trump’s third-quarter haul, according to Bloomberg’s analysis. To land that money, Trump spent $7.3 million on SMS appeals and just under $7.3 million on online ads. His third-biggest expense went for renting donor lists, which cost $2.8 million, Bloomberg reported.

Trump has raised a record amount of money for a former president, reaping $387 million since losing the 2020 election.

His leadership PAC Save America had $93 million cash on hand at the end of August, according to FEC filings, and collected an additional $3.3 million from a joint fundraising committee in September, Bloomberg reported.

Trump has endorsed more than 280 candidates in various elections since leaving office, but Save America donated just $910,500 to 181 candidates through the end of August, according to Bloomberg.

Republicans have tried to shake more cash from the Trump money tree. Yet he has continued to sit on millions even as Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel desperately pleaded in a conference call in August for donors to step up with money to help stumbling GOP candidates in November’s elections.

Not sure. Maybe the BLM folks can help with this question.

Lol the guy has paid more in taxes than you will ever make. Not to mention more successful than you will ever be. And he lives in your head while he doesn't know you even exist.....sad
He still steals from the small donors who fall for his 'snake oil' spiels. They give their money to a 'billinaire' and he probably laughs at them all the way to the bank. Proving yet again - there is a sucker born every second.

I'm personally amused by the number of maga's willing to send money to a grifter. He's got a great gig going and doesn't want to give it up. Why would he? He's suckered 40% of the country, but he's having trouble finding more suckers. He's got to go back to the same well over and over. Eventually it'll run dry. I'm guessing it will dry up by 2024. Heck one billionaire just said he's stopped giving him money.

The majority of republican politicians don't have a death wish. He's trying to sabotage DeSantis's candidacy, but I wonder if he can do it? Probably not. It will make for an interesting next couple of years, watching the donald flail away at his adversaries while trying to extract more cash from whatever supporters he has left.

Should be fun.
