Donald Trump Self-Funding? Not By A Long Shot!
Good Day World! If you've been paying attention to what Donald Trump says, and what he actually does, it's clearly evident he's a liar and hypocrite. The best example I can give you goes back to when the Donald began his campaign for the presidency:
Trump on self-funding his presidential campaign:
“Part of the beauty of me is that I’m very rich. So, if I need $600 million, I can put up $600 million myself. It’s a huge advantage.” — interview with ABC News in March 2011 ahead of aborted 2012 presidential run
“I don’t need anybody’s money. It’s nice. I don’t need anybody’s money. I’m using my own money … I’m not using donors. I don’t care. I’m really rich.” — announcement speech on June 16, 2015
“You know the nice part about me? I don’t need anybody’s money.” — from an interviewin August 2015 in Iowa
“I’m self-funding my own campaign. It’s my money.” — during a speech in Iowa on Feb. 1, 2016
“I don’t believe I have been given any credit by the voters for self-funding my campaign, the only one. I will keep doing, but not worth it!” — from a tweet Feb. 2, 2016
