Donald Trump's campaign has alerted Senate Republicans that he won't have much money to spend fending off attacks from Hillary Clinton over the next couple months.Trump's M.O. in his business dealings has been to start a project rolling, then bring in outside investors, cash out, and stick them with the bill.
The notice came when Paul Manafort, Trump's senior advisor, met with a group of Senate Republican chiefs of staff for lunch last week, sources familiar with the meeting told the Washington Examiner. The admission suggests that Trump will be far more dependent on the GOP brass for money than he has led voters to believe, but it's consistent with his reliance on the Republican National Committee to provide a ground game in battleground states.
Most of the money he's put into the campaign has been structured as loans. The donors will fund his campaign, Trump will get his money back and his donors will end up with nothing.
But, since they're all wealthy Republicans, fuck them if they're that stupid.
