During the past few days, Donald Trump’s campaign finances have came under fire.
The same people who mocked Trump for referring to a $1 million loan from his father as “small,” are now mocking his campaign for ending with $1.3 million in the bank last May under the hashtag #TrumpSoPoor. It is a large gap from Hillary’s $42 million cash hoard.
Still, considering that Donald Trump earns over $250 million a year, he can close the clip with ease if he wishes too.
Meanwhile, Obama just gave Hillary a huge present to help exploit the fundraising gap.
Via the Washington Examiner:The Hillary Clinton campaign will soon have full use of President Obama’s email list, which could help catapult her fundraising efforts to new levels as she prepares to battle Donald Trump in November. The move comes as her staffers take the reins of the Democratic National Committee, allowing Clintonites to take the top leadership positions within the party.
Although the Clinton and Obama email list likely have significant overlap, Obama’s supporters should help the former secretary of state gain a new edge. During the 2012 cycle alone, the Obama email list helped the president rake in over $500 million through email and online donations. The list reportedly has over 20 million names.
I suppose we should keep our fingers crossed that the email list is packed with voters who’ve evolved beyond the Democrat Party following Obama’s disastrous presidency.
