Low and behold that Donald Trump is unable to pay his staff. This is a huge embarrassment for a man who sold his wealth as one of the main reasons the public should vote for him. Trump made himself out to be infallible and that his wealth would make special interests unable to penetrate his presidency. How could that possibly be if Trump has his team out shilling for cash?
Trump’s former campaign manager and now senior adviser, Kellyanne Conway, is slated to headline a $5,000 a plate fundraiser in Buffalo. An individual who is in charge of putting on the event, Congressman Chris Collins, said:
“Mr. Trump held a fundraiser down in New York City a few weeks back and did raise some money, but they have – I would use the word – ‘struggled’ to raise the private funds needed to pay these individuals who are working on behalf of the taxpayers but not being paid by the government
It is a simple matter of Federal law that money generated during a campaign can not be then funneled to cover other activities once the campaign has ended. This places Trump in quite a bind as he does not have any cash on hand. Aside from, of course, his massive fortune he constantly brags about. Why doesn’t Trump just pay his staff out of his own pocket? Why does he have his minions out stumping for him?
