Trump's campaign is reportedly paying Eric Trump's wife and Don Jr.'s girlfriend 'out of public view'
Parscale's own flagship company, Parscale Strategy, "has billed nearly $35 million to the Trump campaign, the RNC, and related entities since 2017," most of which he says he passes along to subcontractors, the Times reports. But his purchases of several multimillion-dollar homes and a Ferrari prompted Trump to call him in for a "pointed lecture," and Trump is "perpetually concerned that Mr. Parscale and his team are making too much money" off his name.

There's always money in President Trump's re-election campaign. And since 2017, at least $75 million of it has gone to companies associated with Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale and a group of his allies,   Danny Hakim and Glenn Thrush report at   The New York Times .

Parscale's group — which includes a trio of former Republican National Committee officials — has "seized control of the Republican Party's voter data and fund-raising apparatus, using a network of private businesses whose operations and ownership are cloaked in secrecy, largely exempt from federal disclosure," the   Times   reports.

Parscale's own flagship company, Parscale Strategy, "has billed nearly $35 million to the Trump campaign, the RNC, and related entities since 2017," most of which he says he passes along to subcontractors,   the   Times   reports . But his purchases of several multimillion-dollar homes and a Ferrari prompted Trump to call him in for a "pointed lecture," and Trump is "perpetually concerned that Mr. Parscale and his team are making too much money" off his name.

Parscale answers to Jared Kushner, Trump's son-in-law, senior White House adviser, and "informal campaign chairman, overseeing the most vital arm of the new family business: politics,"   the   Times   reports . And "the Trump family looms over the whole operation." For example:


According to two people with knowledge of the matter, Parscale Strategy has also been used to make payments out of public view to Lara Trump, the wife of the president's son Eric, and Kimberly Guilfoyle, the girlfriend of Donald Trump Jr., who have been surrogates on the stump and also taken on broader advisory roles. Their presence makes for an odd dynamic between a campaign manager and a candidate's family.
During a campaign appearance last summer in Orlando, Ms. Guilfoyle confronted Mr. Parscale: Why were her checks always late? Two people who witnessed the encounter said a contrite Mr. Parscale promised that the problem would be sorted out promptly by his wife, Candice Parscale, who handles the books on many of his ventures. [ The New York Times ]

Yes, but were these invaluable political geniuses paid the ultimate compliment of having their pussies grabbed by the boss?

Proof.  Lots of proofs out there.  The Trump is a lexicon of proofs.  Start anywhere ranging from the 'biggest brain to hiding everything and even sex.'  Like the universe 'the proofs' are an unending expansion.

Actually, no.  His portrait was purchased by the charity organization, on behalf of the Unicorn Foundation, which raises money for cancer patients, and was to be placed at one of his hotels in Doral, Fl..

The portrait was purchased in 2014 before the 2016 election.

Well, as part of the court settlement for his fraudulent foundation, Trump Jr reimbursed the Trump Foundation for the cost of the portrait - because using the charity funds to buy it was illegal.

careful, they'll ask for proof.

Did Trumps offspring have to take classes in Charity etiquet or something ?

What were they fined, 2 million or so ?

BUT THE CLINTON FOUNDATION....?

didn't it have an A rating ?, while Trumps was closed down !

Explain that one fellows.

I was wrong.  Apologies.  It was not campaign funds.  It was money from his charities.  His ex-lawyer told Congress a straw bidder was used and $60,000 of Trump Foundation funds were used to buy the painting.  He could have gotten it cheaper because there were no other bids.  But he decided to pay that amount so that he could brag about it on twitter that his sold for the highest amount.  To the narcissist in chief, that was paramount, not the fact that he used money donated by people who thought the money they donated was going to help others.  But to Trump, charity begins at home.

The folks in the photo may be the Trump voting base, but they most definitely are not the Trumpian donor base.  The Trump donor base consists of billionaires like the Mercers' and others.  And seeing as how portions of Citizens United is structured to cloak many financial campaign sources it is conceivable to wonder if some of those sources are from entities offshore or money laundering vehicles for elements skirting legal norms.

As far as Parscale, he is an opportunist that sees a cash machine with anything revolving around a Trump.

The women associated with the Trump family?  There it is.  There you have it.  After all, Melania is still there and it is a fact that she raised her son, Barron, to have his primary language as Slovenian.  I sincerely believe there is a purpose for that.

Individual working class Trumpsters are not the main source of Trump's campaign funding, but he does have quite a few. 

Summary data for Donald Trump, 2020 cycle • OpenSecrets

www.opensecrets.org/2020-presidential-race/candidate?id=N00023864

After running an unconventional and underfunded   campaign   in 2016 but receiving free media attention valued at about $5 billion,   Trump’s reelection campaign   looks to be flush with cash. Having declared his 2020 bid the day he took office,   Trump   has drawn unprecedented   fundraising hauls , attracting both large and  small donors

The most likely explanation is that they are all golddiggers.

Except we have not seen a breakdown of the Trump's campaign cash sources.  Of the total value I bet the $100 or less portion of the total is a fraction of a per cent.  There could also be real mega-donors using false names for hundreds of thousands of small contributions.  The Trump campaign will not release the details.  And what has been revealed thus far leaves room for suspicion.  After all, it is Donald J. Trump at the center of it all.

I hope that eventually she realizes what an ahole she married and takes Barron to Slovenia.  Her home country will protect her from whatever crap Trump pulls to bring her back.  She has more than enough money of her own to live comfortably with her son and the sooner he is removed from the toxic environment his father has created the better.

I understand that Melania is worth almost $70 million in her own right.  And a divorce could net her more from Trump.  Of course that depends on Trump's real worth----and----the Trump kids will fight her for every Nickle.  I'm sure Melania is aware that she married into a 'sleazy family unit'.

That you are already complaining about the Trump 2020 cycle shows you have little confidence in the Dem nominee.

Please give us another 4 years of humor after Trump is reelected.

According to two people with knowledge of the matter,

Another way to state that is;

'According to unnamed, unverifiable, unvetted, people CLAIMING to have knowledge, which cannot be determined, of anything are being used as the source of this Trump hate piece masquerading as news.'

But his purchases of several multimillion-dollar homes and a Ferrari prompted Trump to call him in for a "pointed lecture," and Trump is "perpetually concerned that Mr. Parscale and his team are making too much money" off his name.

It's a good thing for him that Parscale is paid by the campaign and not trump himself. If the money paying someone who is ripping off the campaign the way he is was coming from Trump's private funds Parscale would have been out on the street by now. 

Nothing happens because it is other people's money.

Trump has always funneled the cash to himself. Study his bankruptcies. So, in light of his history, not surprising news.
