IF LOOKS LIKE A CAMPAIGN RALLY,

AND IT SOUNDS LIKE A CAMPAIGN RALLY,

DOES IT MATTER THAT DONALD TRUMP ISN’T OFFICIALLY CAMPAIGNING?

BECAUSE THOSE BIG CAMPAIGN DOLLARS ARE ALREADY ROLLING IN….

LET ME EXPLAIN.

TRUMP HAS MORE THAN $100 MILLION IN HIS POLITICAL WAR CHEST ACCORDING TO FEDERAL CAMPAIGN FINANCE FILINGS.

$82 MILLION OF THAT WAS RAISED DURING THE FIRST SIX MONTHS OF 2021.

TRUMP’S SPOKESPERSON POSTED THIS TWEET CONFIRMING IT.

THAT WOULD BE A SHOCKING AMOUNT OF DONATIONS FOR A FORMER PRESIDENT.

BUT NOT FOR TRUMP – WHOSE FAITHFUL ARE DIGGING DEEP INTO THEIR WALLETS IN HOPES OF
ANOTHER WHITE HOUSE RUN.

MOST OF THAT 100 MIL –– CAME FROM THE SAVE AMERICA PAC. THAT PAC WAS LAUNCHED AFTER TRUMP LOST THE 2020 ELECTION.

THAT’S MORE MONEY RAISED ONLINE THAN ANY OTHER REPUBLICAN,

ACCORDING TO THE NEW YORK TIMES, THE NEXT STRONGEST GOP FUND-RAISER WAS SENATOR
TIM SCOTT OF SOUTH CAROLINA, WHO RAISED $7.8 MILLION ONLINE.

SOCIAL MEDIA HAS SINCE BLOWN UP WITH… THE PHRASE ‘TRUMP’S 100’ TRENDING ON TWITTER.

THAT 100 MILLION IS RILING UP TRUMP CRITICS WHO CALL IT A THREAT TO DEMOCRACY

BUT SOME PEOPLE WHOLEHEARTEDLY DISAGREE.

ON OUR FACEBOOK PAGE- JASON WRITES- THAT TRUMP ‘SUPPORTS THE TRUE AMERICAN
FOUNDATION AND IDEOLOGY. HE TRULY REPRESENTS THE MAJORITY OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

MEANWHILE, TRUMP’S NEXT RALLY IS SCHEDULED FOR THIS WEEKEND IN RALEIGH.

WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT HIS HUNDRED-MILLION DOLLAR WAR CHEST?

LET ME KNOW IN THE COMMENTS BELOW.
