I'd like to see him selling plasma like an alcoholic hobo in Pittsburgh.

I guess I'm hoping that if Trump implodes, it happens live and in public. And results in an outcome where he can't hurt us on November 3 or after.

It was funny hearing him in the latest debate talking about how, "if I wanted to, I could raise more money than you could believe. A tremendous amount of money, but I don't think it is necessary," or some such nonsense.

He's just making excuses as to why they blew over a billion dollars from their war chest and have almost nothing to show for it.

"Well I could TOTALLY do it! I just don't wanna!"
 
2020-10-23 12:01:13 AM  
He was going to but his accountants told him he had paid tens of millions of dollars in taxes despite what his returns show
 
2020-10-23 12:01:17 AM  
Sure. Yep. Predisent debt has lots of money. That money is in China, he just can't get it right now. He'll just make a few calls and get more money. Any. Day. Now. Really he doesn't need it. Nope. He's got enough. That's why he's not not taking any donations. Tell all your friends who like Trump, he said he has enough. I don't know why the campaign is even bothering to send out donation requests. He has a bigly amount in the bank, and doesn't need anymore to win.
 
2020-10-23 12:01:23 AM  
He would need a competent campaign manager and competent advisors to make use of the money. Which he knows he needs to save because he's losing.

2020-10-23 12:03:28 AM  
He said sonething again tonight about how he could totally self finance but won't cos it would be unfair or some such BS.

If he thinks he's broke now just wait until after his immunity shield of being POTUS  gets ripped away.

It's inaccurate statements like this that are just so insultingly implausible that it makes the anti-trump sentiment look bad.  He doesn't drink, he's an amphetamine and cocaine addict.  He'll be smoking meth and crack.

Trump is going to get a huge boost of oil money after Joe's "end fossil fuels" gaff during the debate tonight. I hate to see it but Uncle Joe woke the dragon with that one and by Monday Trump ads will fill every TV commercial slot from now till election day.

Trump is broke AF.

Most of the Trump hotels/resorts are losing money. They've been unprofitable for years, but covid sent them spiraling into the financial toilet. Whatever positive cash flow he has goes to keep them out of default and liquidation.

Plus, he has over a $1billion in debt that coming due.

William Jennings Bryan is going to get a huge boost of buggy whip money after Taft's "automobile" gaffe during the debate tonight.  I hate to see it, but Uncle William woke the dragon with that one and by Monday Bryan ads will fill every newspaper slot from now 'till election day.

Technology never changes, and fossil fuels will last forever.  There's no reason for the U.S. to worry that China is going to leave us in the dust when it comes to the next generation of technology.  We'll be great with our coal.

2020-10-23 1:00:50 AM  
The article makes it sound like he raised plenty of money, it's just that he took his cut and took cuts for his family and after that his campaign is short on money. No one on his team wants to raise that issue with him because what would be the point? They know that skimming off the top was his raison d'etre. The scary thing is it would still have been enough to get him re-elected except his own stupidity in dealing with the pandemic put him in a position where his campaign needed that extra money. If you steal from your rainy day fund you better hope the weather doesn't turn to shiat.

I would like to think I've played a part in his campaign cash shortage.

I've clicked through literally thousands of Trump and pro-Trump ads over the past few months, clearing cookies every few hours and reinstalling different browsers on four separate devices pretty much daily. No donations.

When he loses, I'll consider it time and effort well spent.

Meanwhile I've visited the sites of Democrats I support and made contributions I can afford.

He's spent the last 5 1/2 years campaigning uninterrupted except to play golf and pose with pieces of paper. Where did all that money go?

So, between he and Jared, we're talking 2 billion in debts.

Well that's not at all problematic.

Oh right, Hillary Hunter and her his emails.

It is far too easy for an incompetent dickbag that was born rich to stay "rich", despite having over a billion dollars in debt.
 
2020-10-23 2:29:05 AM  
But 8X matching donations!
 
2020-10-23 3:00:26 AM  
So he got plenty of big money donations the first time around because the big money donors saw how easy out was to buy and manipulate him.

Now he's trailing badly in the polls and becoming more unhinged every day. Who wants to give money in that situation? You won't be getting anything for your money, you're just throwing it away.

Trump has spent his adult life making deals, shaking hands with investors and business partners, and then screwing them. The GOP has done the same with their constituents. How the fark did the GOP not see this coming?

// I usually make this comment re the 60 million people who shook hands with him in 2016, but the voters can justifiably plead stupidity; the GOP can't plead ignorance, since it's their SOP.

And at least some of the big money donors are realizing that Trump is doing too much damage, and that there's more money to be made in a reasonably-stable nation than in the completely failed state that a second Trump term would create.

You know, he prepays his taxes, because that is a concept that none of us understand.

I mean that line that has the amount paid of $750 and the amount due of $0 would usually show the amount you paid, but for him it's different.

He's always been hiding shiat that has hurt America in his returns.
