I don't assume anything,, Show me where trump took donations like that?

Everyone one , on both sides were taking huge sums.... except him

He's the president, the deplorables knew it was going to happen....on a shoestring self funded budget. He smoked everyone, on both sides... and has withstood a two year witch hunt looking for collusion....

Who's the dumb one?
Just to be clear, are you saying that republicans can not be corrupt in any way? That seems to be what TA is implying by calling Jeb a RINO.
do you have a reading comprehension problem?

I said both sides...scroll up to see it.

The last thing China wanted was trump in there to steel their free lunch. China was funneling money to both sides

He spent 66 million of his own money, flew in his own jet. Most of his other money came from very small donors of a few hundred bucks

And that pisses you off
I have no emotional response to what trump did or didn’t do regarding his campaign funding. My questions in this thread are related to TA’s apparent inference of what a republican is or isn’t. Sorry if that confused you.

Not at all. Some Republicans are part of the Washington establishment and do not want any change. Jeb Bush is one of them and that is why we call them RINO's. Paul Ryan was another one. The see President Trump as the enemy for wanting to upset their apple cart.
But RINO means “republican in name only”.

If you’re going to assert that being corrupt makes him a RINO, then you’re inferring that real republicans aren’t corrupt.
It is more than that but I digress. :roll:

Donald Trump doesn't want to be seen as anyone's puppet. Unlike his rival Hillary Clinton, he has disavowed super PACs, the fundraising organizations that attract millions in donations from wealthy supporters.The Republican candidate, who has put in $8 million of his own money and guaranteed loans worth $47 million to fund his campaign, has argued that he can't be controlled by special interests this way. But that didn't stop supporters from donating millions to pro-Trump super PACs this last quarter. (See also, Top 10 Contributors to the Clinton Campaign)


The following are the top donors to Trump's campaign:

1. Robert Mercer, Renaissance Technologies - $13.5 million
The CEO of New York-based hedge fund Renaissance Technologies has contributed millions of his fortune to conservative causes over the years. This election cycle, Mercer had started a super PAC to support Ted Cruz and Trump's campaign manager Kellyanne Conway managed it. When Cruz dropped out, Mercer changed the name of the super PAC from Keep the Promise 1 to Make America Number 1 and focused on supporting Trump's campaign.

2. Sheldon Adelson and Miriam Adelson, Las Vegas Sands Corporation (LVS) - $10 million
Casino magnate Sheldon Adelson is the CEO of Las Vegas Sands Corporation. He and his wife both gave $5 million each to the Future45 super PAC. Adelson also gave $1.5 million to the Republican National Convention this year. (See also, Republican National Convention 2016 Donor's Names Released)
So trump put in the most money? Got it
Just a partial list ...
If you find a single individual who put in more than trump himself, let me know
