  1. Trump is a complete fraud, and he loves putting on a great production, and the bigger the spectacle, the better. The only thing that matters to him is that YOU believe that it’s real. 

    In a 1996 Manhattan ribbon-cutting ceremony for a charity called the Association to Benefit Children. The association was celebrating the grand opening of a nursery school that would serve children with AIDS. Trump unexpectedly appeared at the event and took a seat on on stage alongside top donors, even though he had never donated to the charity. The seat he took belonged to Steven Fisher, a developer who had donated a hefty sum to help the charity build the nursery.

    “Nobody knew he was coming,” Abigail Disney, another donor sitting on the dais, told the Post. “There’s this kind of ruckus at the door, and I don’t know what was going on, and in comes Donald Trump. He just gets up on the podium and sits down.” Trump had never donated to the charity.

    Trump played the part of a big donor convincingly. Photos from the event show Trump smiling, right behind Giuliani, as the mayor cut the ribbon.” Trump later performed the macarena with Giuliani, Kathie Lee Gifford, and crowd of children, and then slipped out of the function without donating one red cent to the charity.

    The time Trump’s now defunct charity foundation gave $264,631 to fix a fountain outside one of his hotels. The biggest donation that Trump’s fake foundation ever gave appears to have been to contribute to fixing a fountain outside of the Plaza Hotel, which he owned at the time. “It shows you what this “foundation” was all about. Which was basically all about advancing Trump’s interests,” said Brian Galle, a professor of tax law at Georgetown University.

    The time Trump grabbed the spotlight at an event honoring an employee. For years, Trump relied on longtime employee Barbara Res to convince contractors to donate to charity galas sponsored by then-wife Ivana. But when she got an award, Trump didn’t buy any tables at the gala or sponsor the event as was customary for the employers of the honorees. He bought a $100 ticket to the event and then managed to convince someone to give him the microphone. He spoke for 15 minutes and made it seem like he had been a big contributor to the event.

    • @jason rodgers not I can’t believe the Democrats nominated Joe Biden? And this is very sad after 8 years of being President Ronald Reagan’s Alzheimer’s was getting very severe and at least his wife Nancy Reagan didn’t parade him out in public out of respect for the man this is very serious what’s going on with Joe Biden’s Mental Health and it’s very sad that they are putting this man through this? and you expect him to be the leader of the Free World? I don’t think so

    • @jason rodgers at least Donald Trump’s children aren’t out smoking crack and getting strippers pregnant and having to go to court for a paternity test and child support payments..LOL.. but hunter can afford that after getting multiple Millions from Ukraine and China

      Yeah, and he is tied against Biden in Florida….go figure. WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!!

    • Kevin Blake Dear Kevin I’m an American please get off daddy’s computer and go to bed now

    • @Stephanie Barrett yep that means he’s ahead of Biden in Florida I know for a fact in Ohio he’s beating Biden

  2. He’s too busy stealing money from the campaign no way he would give any back if you vote for him you are singing your own death warrant

  3. How can this even be a surprise looking at this thing’s track record?

  4. When its all said and done Trump and his whole crooked Administration is going to prison

  5. Several wealthy Russians were “granted unusual access” to Trump inauguration parties back in January 2017 — and Mueller is seeking to find out why. The tycoons were given “unprecedented access to Trump’s inner circle”—and investigators in Mueller’s probe are interested in their attendance at the parties.

    Rick Gates was heavily involved in planning the inauguration, with a Yahoo News report in 2016calling him the “shadow chair” of the event. There have long been serious questions about the money behind Trump’s inauguration — and where, exactly, it all went. Trump’s inaugural committee raised an astonishing $106.7 million, double the previous record set by Obama’s 2009 inaugural. But what they did with it isn’t so clear. The chair of GW Bush’s 2nd inauguration, Greg Jenkins, said he was baffled. “Trump had a third of the staff and a quarter of the events that we had,  and yet they raise at least twice as much as we did,” he said. “So there’s the obvious question: Where did it go? I don’t know.”

    The inauguration caught law enforcement’s attention back while it was happening. Counterintelligence officials at the FBI were concerned  by an unusual presence of politically connected Russians in DC during the event — including some of the exact people who “had surfaced in the agency’s investigation of the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia.”
    Back in June ABC News reported that Mueller’s investigators wanted to know why several billionaires with “deep ties to Russia” got access to “exclusive, invitation-only receptions” during the inauguration.

    It is against the law for foreign nationals to donate to a presidential inaugural committee. Mueller is exploring whether wealthy Russians used “straw donors” with American citizenship to steer money into the inauguration. Sometime around March of this year, Russian oligarch Viktor Vekselberg flew in to a NY on a private plane — and was met there by Mueller’s investigators, who questioned him and searched his electronic devices.

    Vekselberg is the owner of the Renova Group, a Russian conglomerate with aluminum and oil interests, and is one of the richest people in Russia. His cousin, Andrew Intrater, an American citizen who runs a US company tied to Vekselberg’s company, donated $250,000. Intrater had also kicked in $35,000 to the Trump Victory Committee..

    Vekselberg and Intrater attended Trump’s inauguration together, and at the January 19 candlelight dinner, they were seated with Trump’s lawyer, Cohen.. Later that year, that company run by Intrater paid Cohen’s shell company, Essential Consultants LLC, $500,000 — for, they claimed, real estate advice. A 1million inaugural donation came from Leonard Blavatnik, who runs a company called Access Industries. Blavatnik was on the guest list for the January 19 candlelight dinner too.

    Blavatnik is a Soviet-born, UK-based billionaire who is a US citizen. He is also partnered with Vekselberg, in Russia’s aluminum industry. Together, they built the largest aluminum company in Russia by merging with Oleg Deripaska’s Rusal. Deripaska is also a player in Mueller’s  investigation — he employed Manafort, and Manafort tried to get in touch with him during 2016.

    Alexander Mashkevitch, a Kazakh mining billionaire, was on the guest list for the “candlelight dinner,” and happens to have been in the Seychelles around the same time as Erik Prince.
    And Natalia Veselnitskaya and Rinat Akhmetshin, who attended Don Jr’s infamous Trump Tower meeting, were in town too — they attended an inauguration night party thrown by Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA), who’s widely viewed as the biggest supporter of Putin’s regime in Congress.

    Several people involved in previous inaugurations were quoted expressing puzzlement over how Trump’s team could have possibly spent over $100 million for what they got. But if there is anyone who might know where much of the money went, it is Rick Gates.

    This election is like no other: we shall be voting for our children’s long-term future! A vote for Trump and his Fake-GOP is a vote for a white-power totalitarian America. Over the past four years, Trump has laid the foundation for a white-supremacist coup d’etat. If you ignore the warning signs, are you prepared to gamble on your children’s future?

  16. Idk. If he fears going to jail when he loses, he might.

  17. First, Trump is always broke. He will NEVER spend his own money.

  18. The “campaign” is paying Trump’s kids fat salaries for “consulting.”
    It’s a grift. Why would he put his own money into it?

  19. “DONALD TRUMP IS WEAK” JOE BIDEN 2020 🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊 KAMALA HARRIS VP

  20. I’m not sure why these so called cities are allowing these rallies to go on which he never pays for
