Donald Trump Campaign is broke

I heard that tired old "trump doesn't need money, he's rich" bullshit argument last week. Gawd I hate Thanksgiving.

Check the information in these FEC links. Trump has loaned his campaign roughly 1/3 of his total receipts. The other 2/3 has come from individual donations. And, as of the most recent filing he only has roughly $255,000 in cash on hand. That may sound like a chunk of money, but when running for President...... it's pocket change.

Print out copies of these and hand them to the next asshole who tells you how trump doesn't need any money, he's a Billionaire.

Someone please make this asshole go away.

Edit: Clarification. His campaign is broke.

1. Does this include real estate holdings?

It's possible that most of his net worth is in real estate. Of course, this could be a problem because those holdings are not liquid assets.

I sure do wish he'd go away.

3. So, why doesn't he use a few bucks?

I should have made it clear that his campaign is broke. I don't think anyone has a clear handle on how much he has.

6. He said he would use his own money. Do you think he won't as long as he's on top?
