Trump cannot stand it when people don't like him. He attacked Bloomberg who is many many times richer than Trump and now he's mad at the Koch Brothers because they have no interest in supporting him.

After Snubs, Trump Claims He Rejected Koch Request to Meet

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump took to his normal form of communication, Twitter, to blast the activist brothers, saying he "turned down" a meeting request with them.

But officials with Freedom Works, the Koch's political arm, indicated that they requested no meeting.

Trump's tweet comes after Politico reported Friday that Trump's finance team requested a meeting but that the request was denied by the Koch organization. Trump held two rallies in Colorado Friday, including one in Colorado Springs.

Did Trump really hang around Colorado Springs hoping they would change their mind? How embarrassing.

Little Don the Con just can not stand it when he is rejected. If I recall correctly, we have seen this type of behavior from Donald before: Last Week Tonight Says They Never Invited Donald Trump to Appear | Vanity Fair

I'm wondering who is actually paying for the Trump campaign. Will he continue to do outrageous things because he has no money?

Russia might be a good guess.

I'm starting to wonder if this is true. There are a lot of reporters chasing a potential Russian link.

Don't be ridiculous. They don't have any money.

Donald Trump and Russia: a web that grows more tangled all the time

A key figure at the Republican national convention where Donald Trump was nominated for president has strong business ties with Ukraine, the Guardian has learned.

The party platform, written at the convention in Cleveland last week, removed references to arming Ukraine in its fight against pro-Russia rebels, who have received material support from the Kremlin. Trump’s links to Russia are under scrutiny after a hack of Democratic national committee emails, allegedly by Russian agents.

The stories have been building.

The Kochs haven't given up on the Republican party. Far from it.
They just gave up on Trump.

Their money will be going to the Senators this year, especially to the Senators who are in danger of losing their seats. S

Since the Kochs don't give out a nickel without a lot of say-so along with it, as the race goes on, Trump could find himself cut out of all the party functions where he might get support from other sources, such as the RSCC- the Republican Senate Central Committee. They can hand out funding to any candidate they choose, although Senators get the most of it.

Isolated, even if Trump finds other sources like a Super Pac, he may not be abel to directly access any money from them. Super Pacs cannot directly contribute to the candidate without breaking the law. They can support him by paying for TV time, materials, and other stuff, but nothing can go to the candidate directly.

This is what killed off Walker do early in the primaries. His campaign chest was completely emptied, even though he still had millions of committed Super Pac dollars. Walker had no money to pay for the campaign expenses, and had to quit.

Trump has lots of money, but will he risk millions of his own? Before this is over, that's the big question.

Right now, he's still counting on Twitter to do his ad work for him, while Clinton is spending on TV, with some effective ads on high repeat, and more on the way.
TV ads don't get direct rebuttal. Twitter does. Eventually everything grows stale fast on Twitter too, and lacks the emotional impact of a good TV ad.

Time will tell. Trump has ways to find money, but he will need to be careful, as some of those ways can blow up in his face.
