Self funding is over with. Now Dishonest Donald will turn to the two things he and his followers blast all the other candidates for having, mega donors and SuperPacs. Crony capitalists and corrupt businessmen sticking together, no surprise.

Trump has no control over who makes donations to PACs.

Wait, I thought Trump was attractive to his followers because he was not susceptible to influence from these sorts of people, as a result of being entirely self funded.

So, what happened to all of that? Also, do Trump's followers care? Or was their original assertion that Trump was attractive to them because he did not take money from these sorts of people just a bunch of rancid B.S.?

So Cruz didn't have control over it either right?

Please, they are old buddies

Way to go Shelley!!! Glad to have a guy with such common sense on board the Trump train. This will really hurt the never trump team. Great news for Trump.

Of course it was all bs, but just like always his supporters need pretend not to care to keep from having to acknowledge that they've been conned and played for fools.

Only Cruz could make this statement. One other thing. Trump didn't audition for him like all the other now failed candidates.

Call me when Sheldon's money ends up in Trump's campaign. Entering the general, the boundaries between Trump and RNC blurs quite a bit. If Sheldon donates to the RNC and RNC spends it on ads, would you count this as Trump breaking his pledge? He has already pledged he will not reimburse his campaign by superpac money.

Wow sparty... You are even less informed than I thought. Nobody would spend over a billion dollars of their own money on the general election. Trump has common sense. I know it scares you how well he's doing, you can hear the desperation in your posts getting stronger and stronger. I cant believe you thought Trump was paying for his general election campaign. Only on city data.. Lol. I really hope you're a woman for your own sake. Because if you're a man, you need to grow a pair.
