“I will have in my race more than $100 million put in of my money, meaning I’m not taking all of this big money from all of these different corporations like she’s doing,” Trump said at the debate. “What I ask is this. I’m putting in more, by the time it’s finished, I’ll have more than $100 million invested. Pretty much self-funding.” -Donald Trump


One of the great appeals for many with Trump was his assertion that he was “self funding” his campaign.This would in theory reduce or eliminate the leverage lobbyists and industry had in his administration. So what happened? The Washington Post broke it down for readers right before the election.

It doesn’t look like Trump hit the $100,000,000 mark and it isn’t right to say that he “pretty much” self funded.

(From The Washington Post)

How much money has Trump contributed to his campaign committee?

As of Friday, when Trump wired his campaign $10 million, he had given a total of $66,108,073.64 in cash and in-kind contributions, according to Federal Election Commission filings. If he wants to hit $100 million, he will have to ante up nearly $34 million more in the next week. We will get fairly quick disclosure of any new donations he makes, since campaigns now have to report any contributions of $1,000 or more within 48 hours.
