What Who HASN’T Donated To Donald Trump’s Campaign Tells You About the Campaign

(Before It's News)

There is an old saying to the effect that if you sit down at a
poker game and you can’t figure out who the mark is, you’re the
mark. That has never been truer than this election season.

We started out with Ben Carson running a campaign that seemed
more like he was selling Thomas Kinkade Christmas ornaments than
running a political campaign. But, of course, the megalith in this
Stonehenge of grifting was the Trump campaign. Trump has run his
campaign like he’s run his businesses, as a machine designed to
enrich himself while leaving furious partners and disappointed
customers in the comet trail of failure. "http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2016/10/27/even-trump-s-kids-haven-t-donated-to-his-campaign.html"
target="_blank">Consider this
:

With less than two weeks until the election, Donald Trump has
amassed an impressive army of small donors, fueling his bid with
individual contributions of $200 or less. But noticeably absent
from the list of contributors is basically anyone with the last
name Trump, many of the surrogates who represent The Donald on
national television, and members of his own campaign staff.

According to a review of Federal Election Commission filings by
The Daily Beast, only one of Trump’s children showed up on a list
of itemized receipts for the campaign: Eric. On Sept. 7, 2016, Eric
Trump appears to have contributed $376.20 listed only as “meeting
expense: meals.” It appears that money was later refunded. Eric
Trump did not respond to a request for comment about the
transaction.

Ivanka Trump, who previously contributed to Hillary Clinton and
John McCain in 2007 and 2008 respectively, does not appear to have
given to her father.

Donald Trump Jr., who contributed to Iowa congressman Steve King
in 2014 and Hillary Clinton in 2007, is also nowhere to be
found.

And a search for Tiffany Trump yielded no results.

The Trump children are not the only prominent figures in his
orbit who have not invested in the mogul’s presidential bid.

Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, the former Defense Intelligence Agency
director turned Trump warm-up act, has not given the candidate a
dime. Neither has Governor Chris Christie, Trump’s first rival for
the presidency to endorse him. Christie gave his own campaign the
maximum allowable contribution of $2,700 on Sept. 29, 2015.

Many of Trump’s surrogates, who have been generous in previous
campaigns, this year have kept their wallets closed to The
Donald.

Newt Gingrich contributed $4,600 to John McCain in 2008 but has
yet to give any money to Trump’s campaign. Ben Carson, another
staunch Trump defender, gave Mitt Romney $1,000 in April 2012 but
nothing to Trump this cycle.

The rest of the Trump circle of staffers, advisers, and
surrogates who are absent from his FEC filings includes: former New
York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, adviser and attorney Michael Cohen
(an admitted registered Democrat), and former executive of
Breitbart and Trump’s campaign CEO Steve Bannon.

So who has given to the Trump campaign? Apparently the folks who
set down at the table and couldn’t recognize the mark.
