Trump took hundreds of thousands in marketing campaign donations and gave them to his firms
Trump never donated for his re-election, but he has poured millions in campaign donations into various companies he owns.
Donald Trump’s re-election campaign, which never received a dime from the former president, raised an estimated $ 2.8 million in donations to the Trump organization – including at least $ 81,000 since Trump lost the election.
In addition, from January 20, 2017 to December 31, 2020, one of the campaign’s joint fundraising committees, which is raising money in partnership with the Republican Party, transferred approximately $ 4.3 million in donations – at least of that amount – to Trump’s business $ 331,000 after the election.
The money covered rent, airfare, accommodation and other costs.
Trump’s actions show that the presidency has always been a for-profit endeavor for him. Donald Trump has no interest in becoming president. During his tenure, much of his energy was spent figuring out ways to get taxpayers’ money into his business.
The difference between the nation with a Grifter and a Commander-in-Chief has been shown in the few weeks that Joe Biden was in office. By the end of February, Joe Biden will have provided more legal aid to the American people than Donald Trump did in four years.
