Trump completely transformed the Republican party, making it the party of the little guy, despite Trump himself being known for his tremendous wealth!
Quote:
That is similar to the proportion Trump raised during the 2016 election cycle, when 65 percent of donations were under $200. And this is dramatically higher than previous Republican nominees. Mitt Romney raised 26 percent of his direct contributions from small donations in 2012, and John McCain raised 25 percent from small donations in 2008.

Trump's sheer force of personality did this, making him officially the most talented person in American history.

It's looking like Joe Biden's donations are coming from Banksters, Hollywood, and Wall Street.



Remember he's telling the 1% they will do "fine" if he is President.

Political fundraising finally met up with the internet, spearheaded by Obama and the Dems in 2008. It took the Republicans a cycle to catch up. The tech has allowed for many small, frequent donations to a wide variety of candidates. Many involve knee jerk reactions to the news or commentary of the day. It's very common now for resident of Utah to donate a few bucks to a candidate in a local race in Florida. Cant say Trump deserves credit for it in any way.

So how much dark money came from the NRA to elect Trump in 2016? Didn't they spend something like 30 million on Trump's campaign? I'd say they own him for at least 8 years if he's re-elected.

Trump banned bump stocks, so obviously not.
The NRA owned the Presidents who refused to ban bump stocks.

85 cents of every dollar you donate goes to the campaign... guaranteed!

That's what the Democrats do: tell the poor that they are for them (to get their votes) but behind the scenes, they are really backed by moneyed interests.

Trump spent much less on his campaign than Hillary and still managed to beat her.
