Just asking because his fundraising has slowed down. He used to send 15+ emails a day asking for money. But in the past few days it has fallen to just one or two.
The old saying is, “follow the money,” and in Donald Trump’s case that is especially true. Trump may have folded in terms of the 2020 presidential election and his “stop the steal” campaign but there is no way that he is done tapping into his supporters’ money tree.
The question is whether his next campaign focuses on helping other Republicans or just moves right into the 2024 election, keeping the spotlight on himself.
My guess is it’s primarily the latter. Unless one of his kids decides to run for office . . .
Many of Donald Trump’s supporters voted for him twice. Without cheating. First they supported him with their ballots. Then they supported him with their checkbooks.
Trump has sent out over 400 fundraising emails since the election. “Help me defend this election and democracy.” They’re working – he’s hauling in the cash.
As usual, the mainstream media is missing the story. The media seems obsessed with reporting on how dimwitted Trump supporters are. The media writes stories about how they are being duped – the fine print gives Trump the right to use most of the money any way he wants, not just to challenge the election results.
The truth is that they are not being duped. They don’t really care how Trump uses the money, they just don’t want him to go away. They send money to show their support for him. Another vote for Trump.
The story the media should be covering is how many people still fervently support Trump even though he lost. But the media never understood Trump supporters and prefers to think of them as the ignorant white working class.
Isn’t it time for the media get it head out of its elitist arse and do its job?
