  1. Wouldn’t be surprised a bit if we find that Trumps – the junior, the daughter, the dim one – pocketed it all.

  2. So, 45* is on his way to scoring his 7th bankruptcy: his re-election campaign.

    Is anyone the least bit surprised by this news?

  4. The same way you drive a casino into bankruptcy: You steal money off the top.

  5. And yet he hasnt paid the cities where he held rallies…… so we know he hasn’t been paying his bills with it.

    • @foxdesignbuild foxdesignbuild Ouch, that hurt. Do some research.

      @Yilden Delta Pack o’ lies.

    • @Pittsburgh Steelers
      Who controls the Senate?
      Who’s refused to remove Donald, because they’re hoping for more court judge picks?
      The GOP.

      Defending liars and crooks makes you one yourself, by default.
      Or a paid troll.
      Which is it?

    • Trump has a history of bankrupting small and large companies by not paying. He is above that. It is a proven fact. This is no big surprise. Not one penny of it was his but I bet a large portion went to him, his businesses and his family.

    • Yeah, now he has Covid infected rallies and doesn’t pay the cities. What A Guy. Trump for Prison 2020

  6. I wouldn’t be surprise if he paid him self for appearing in his own ads and then again for endorsements of his own candidacy. Kinda like his non profit and a everything else.

    Just imagine all the good things that you could do with 800 million dollars. What a waste to spend it on Trump.

  8. Of course he misused the money. He is a grifter.

    America can’t afford four more years of trump. And, apparently- neither can trump.

    • northerniltree don’t worry…..he’s been making such shady deals behind the scenes and stealing taxpayer money on the side, that he and his slimeball kids NOW have waaaay more money than they did before he cheated his way, with Russia’s help, into the Oval

    • Especially the United States of America.

    • Joseph De la torre | September 15, 2020 at 8:29 PM | Reply

      Well you know what to do…

    • Neither can Trump!? You don’t think that a good portion of that 800 million wasn’t diverted into his private accounts. No one can actually say where it all went. He got plenty of it. And just one of his scams. His inauguration find is another one and there are plenty we don’t even fathom.

    • @tesla H; You are so right, I was saying this four years ago.

  10. And yet, Trump still leads on “the economy”…. When are people going to recognise that Trump is terrible with money!!??

    • They are not. You cant fix stupid.

    • @Rick Montgomery – But at least he is losing on every other issue so not everyone is that stupid.

    • @Greg Brogan Trump is losing on EVERY issue and is a complete FAILURE.
      Trump is incompetent, corrupt, racist, and a compulsive liar. He is the WORST president ever. As a result, he will LOSE in November.

    • Exactly right …. Chump is a failure as a businessman and always has been. Never will understand how Chump is shown as better on the economy, especially since it is not true and is factually incorrect on multiple different measures. Chump is provably NOT better on the economy, yet somehow far to many americans say that he is. Total disconnect from reality on a very very important subject.

    • Just look at the federal deficit.

  11. Trumps family have been getting big pay checks out of his campaign.

  12. Trump’s been madly filling his pockets in case he loses in Nov. because he’s the “Grifter in Chief” & a LOSER!

  13. William H. Baird | September 9, 2020 at 10:58 AM | Reply

    He’s stealing again! It is what he does! Make TRUMP 2020 His “Final” Year in Office!

  14. Maybe Trump should: release his tax returns, and bank records, maybe he can get a loan from Deutsche bank, maybe he can declare bankruptcy again, maybe he can RESIGN.

  15. Trump’s promise – “Every penny of every dollar that doesn’t go into my pockets goes to the campaign and only the campaign.”

  16. Money won’t get him re-elected any way. Worst person in history to run this country. EVER!

      @Ivo Dimov Trump trying to get by with a little help from his Russian friends. They are willing to work for land and influence in other countries without being challenged.

    • Many republicans said “we want a successful businessman to run the country”. Then they chose Trump of all people. He certainly wont win the popular vote. If the Electoral College fails Americans again this country is shot to *bleep*

    • I can understand how people elected him neither him or kids ever held public office not even as dog catcher.

    • @Ivo Dimov: Since you are too lazy to learn English, you should be set back where you came from.

    • @Ivo Dimov Yes, I can’t think of any other President we’ve had who would alter a National Weather Service Map during a Hurricane, or suggest injecting or injecting disinfectant as a viral treatment, or lie to the public during a Pandemic which resulted in hundreds of thousands of Americans dying. Even Bush Jr. who is stupid BTW, did not do that. Trump is 😈.

    Money headed in the direction of a trump is money vanishing. He and his kids steal anything not bolted to the floor.

      You’ve obviously forgot everything the Clintons stole from the White House on their last day before leaving and how they and their whole staff trashed the place. Such class, right? Pshh. The fact that a man who lied grossly about his embedded “war reporting” is the one who is reporting on this shows how truthful it is lol.

    • Little homie u mean up Trump and his son jr’s nose or any other orafice !

    • Little Homie you mean the guy who SERVED his country and didn’t have BONESPURS 🦴

      @C J Yeah the same guy who cheated on his wife with the widow of his dead brother(Beau) soon after his death and then when caught he divorced his wife and married the widow of his dead brother(Beau). Then he took $1.5 million from ukraine in return for political favors. Yeah real classy guy there from a classy family lemme tell ya.

    • He’s gonna steal his blind follower’s campaign contributions and abscond to Russia. He’s known as “Don the Con” for a good reason.

  18. This guy is a serious crook. He’s even stealing from his cult followers.😂😂😂

    • When it’s his cult, I don’t care. But what is so sad and dangerous is, neither to they,
      They somehow thing being screwed over by tRump is something to brag about.

    • Just like the Bannon “We Build The Wall” fraud. a.k.a. “Wallgate”.

    Honestly, Biden could have stayed at home. tRump is losing the race for himself.

  20. Rump’s life has been borrowing and not repaying.
