Donald Trump, “Hillary spending a billion dollars on Campaign”
Hillary Clinton will spend “a billion dollars of Wall Street money and money from the Middle East” on her campaign, Donald Trump said Tuesday.
“We want to keep it lean,” he said on TV Tuesday Morning. “I’m not looking to spend all this money. I hear people spend a billion dollars. How do you spend a billion dollars? It’s impossible. Politicians are the only ones who can spend a billion dollars.”
And Hillary Clinton, he said, has “a lot of money from the Middle East. She has got money from people you do not want her to have money from, but she’ll spend more than a billion dollars. I do not want to do that.
“In New Hampshire and other states I spent a tiny fraction of what other people spent and I won in a landslide. I like that much better.”
According to new reports, Mrs. Clinton cut back in May on her campaign spending and built up a cash pile of $42-M for her general election fight, and she has already used $23.3-M of it to fund ads against Donald Trump in 8 Key swing states where he has yet to have a TV presence.
Donald Trump, said he needs support from Republicans, claiming that he gets “more support from the Democrats than the Republicans. I have so much tremendous support from Congressmen and Senators and other people, but we do need support.”
Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus and his group have “been terrific,” said Donald Trump, “but it would be nice to have full support from people in office. I mean, full verbal support. Now, with all of that be said, I may go in a different route if things don’t happen.”
He said that this past weekend, he raised $12-M in stops in Las Vegas, Texas, and Arizona for the Republican Party, not himself.
“I can go a different route, I can just spend my own money,” he said. “I have a lot of cash and I can do like I did with the other, spend money on myself and go happily along and I think I win that way.
“Many people think I do better that way, by being more of the insurgent, the outsider and not working along. But I want to work along because the RNC has been terrific. Reince Priebus has been terrific. It is all coming together.”
Meanwhile, Donald Trump’s bold response to the massacre of 49 people in Orlando, FL., by a gunman who pledged allegiance to ISIS boosted the GOP presumptive nominee’s support.
