That's a lot of Drumpf hats.

He buy them for 3 bucks and soaks the goobers for 30. He's gonna have enough $ left over after his defeat to pay off his charity's fines and lawsuit settlements.

Has anyone seen a Trump hat worn in public, or received one?

At what point will he spend the money donated to his campaign?

The whole thing is weird.

"At what point will he spend the money donated to his campaign? "

Trump doesn't have any money. He just sent out a letter to his Joe Lunchpails asking them for 415.00.

But I did hear that Melania was going to hold a bake sale. So there's that.

Opps ~ that was supposed to be $15.00.

In August, Trump put another $2 million of his own money into the campaign. That brings his total contributions to $54 million, which includes $47.5 million in loans he made during the primaries and later forgave. Trump so far is the biggest political donor in 2016, albeit a self-interested one.

^^ From the article. Interesting to read that Trump has forgiven the personal $ loans he made to his primary campaign - maybe that talking point will now be extinguished.

"Trump has forgiven the personal $ loans"

I read that, too. The problem with Trump's personal loans is that the money always seems to end up back in his own pocket (or the pocket of his children) in the form of doubling the square footage rent he pays to Trump Towers for his "headquarters" and staffers, leasing fees he pays himself for his own airplane, hotels and restaurants he owns, and the huge amount he pays to his son and daughter who work for his campaign and the rent he pays himself for use of other properties he owns such as Mar-a-Lego.

Trump doesn't have an altruistic bone in his body. Regular campaign donors one could usually count on have instructed the RNC that none of their money is to go to Trump. The RNC just announced that they have stopped fundraising for Trump and have cut off the tap. Trump has burned every donor who trusted him. One of his PACs announced they have stopped fundraising for him. (in good conscience)

Trump never forgives anything that involves putting money in his pocket. That's just something he says to make his reports to the FEC look good. Any money that Trump personally puts out goes out one door and back in another. He brags about how much money he's making from this campaign.

Trump paid himself back (out of campaign donations) for every dime of his own money he spent on his self-funded (LOL) primary. Money that should have been spent on advertising and ground crews or at least should have been left to accrue for the final (and most expensive) final lap of his campaign has been foolishly squandered on himself.

Now he want to boo-hoo about Hillary outspending him and the free media that he used to promote his campaign?

Cry me a river. That dog don't hunt.

He is soooo self funded I keep getting emails and phone calls asking me to help him self fund (BTW the caller makes a note that "Since he is no longer able to self fund") every single day.

I like to chat them up for a half hour or so, asking policy questions before I donate. When they finally realize it is futile they ask "Can I put you down for $100?" My answer is "Oh no, but if you pray for me, I will pray for you."

By "forgiving" his loans, (on paper) in his monthly reports to the FEC, Trump makes it appear that his final campaign liabilities are lower than they really are. It's a clever ruse but a ruse nonetheless.

Of course, GONOLES still believes that Trump is the epitome of honesty and truthfulness neither of which were evident in his campaign or his business life.

Are you accusing Bloomberg.com of not doing due diligence in their reporting? (Did you read the article at all, twinpac?)

Lying on FEC forms is a criminal act. Do you have any evidence to back your loony conspiracy theories, twinpac, or are you again making baseless assumptions?

She's not lying. He just chooses his own companies for services provided the campaign whenever possible. There's nothing illegal about it, it's just the way he talks about it in public is a bit different from how it actually works.

Who said anything about lying on FEC form. I'm sure that Trump did indeed "forgive" those loans.

I'm also sure that Trump will be sending out requests to his loyalists to help him retire his campaign debt (without specifics). There's a half dozen ways those loans can show up on the ledger. His high paid accountants probably know them all. I even know a few myself.

Incorrect. Your comment as a whole is purely personal speculation rather than something which you are sure on.
