So much for being "Tremendously Rich"!
"The Donald Trump campaign has sent its first "emergency" fundraising email to supporters Saturday, seeking to raise at least $100,000 by the end of the day.Yeah because he's get's so much airtime for just "farting". Interesting because many big GOP donors said they would keep their money to themselves - for now. Trump had boasted through the primaries that he didn't need money - after all, he's got a bazillion bucks and can fund himself.
That request follows a multimillion dollar ad blitz launched by likely general election rival Hillary Clinton this week.
"Right now we're facing an emergency goal of $100,000 to help get our ads on the air," the email said. "We need your contribution by 11:59 P.M. Tonight."
"Crooked Hillary is about to invade your TV with ads attacking Mr. Trump. But we're preparing to fight back," it reads, adding that the campaign plans to attack Clinton over her role in Benghazi and the FBI probe into her use of a private email server while secretary of state.
Clinton this week launched a multimillion dollar ad blitz in eight swing states, her first geared toward the general election.
Meanwhile, Republican leaders have worried about Trump's fundraising operation as he mounts a general election campaign against Clinton's well-oiled machine.
Several prominent GOP donors have said they would keep their wallets shut this cycle and not support the unconventional candidate.
But Trump has recently said there's "no reason" for his campaign to raise his previously pledged $1 billion for the general election."
On the other hand the Hillary Express has more money up her lying wazoo. So this will be interesting to watch.
