Donald Trump To Attend Fundraiser In Southampton on Saturday

Donald Trump will be coming to Southampton for a fundraiser at the home of Wilbur Ross on July 9.  DANA SHAW
Jul 6, 2016 9:56 AM

The presumptive Republican presidential nominee, Donald Trump, plans to get together with some of the party’s top donors this weekend in Southampton, and to try to achieve unity with some former rivals.

Mr. Trump is expected to meet with Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus at the fundraiser, which will take place on Saturday, July 9, at billionaire investor Wilbur Ross’s home in Southampton.

Bloomberg Politics reported that, according to an invitation, Pepe Fanjul, a Florida sugar baron and longtime patron of U.S. Senator Marco Rubio, is on the host committee for the fundraiser.

Bloomberg also reported that Hunter Global Investors Founder Duke Buchan III and his wife, Hannah, who backed Jeb Bush early in the campaign, are among the event’s co-hosts.

Lunch with Mr. Trump and Mr. Priebus will cost $25,000 per person, or $100,000 for a couple, with the donation also netting a spot on the host committee.

Also listed as host committee members are New York Jets Owner Woody Johnson, who backed Mr. Bush previously but now endorses Mr. Trump, and Richard LeFrak, a billionaire New York real estate developer and friend of Mr. Trump.

What happened to the guy who was going to fund his own campaign and wouldn't be "owned" but the big corporations, investment banks, and "barons"?

Trump said he would fund his campaign during the primary. He never said he would fund his own campaign now that he is the presumed nominee!!

Here's some history on Trump's self-funding

http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2016/05/trumps-self-funding-lie/482691/

That was part of his appeal, the unbought "billionaire" who could self-fund his campaign. He's also made statements in the past that he would release his ax returns if he ran for office, now, probably not. He doesn't want the world to know the details about his phony claims.

Nothing reflects the pride you have in hillary as much as your desperate, toothless and humorous attacks on the private citizen running against her. You've already explained that Jeff Epsteins a great guy for letting bubba take dozens of trips with 14 year old runaways- likely for their compelling connect-4 tournaments but that leaves open the question of why ditch secret service just for board games with young teenage runaways?

The Right-Wing Greek chorus on this site really should hire a choirmaster to direct them. He could, as least, coordinate all their separative plaintive mewlings into one harmonious(?) whine. The result would probably be less irritating then their individual efforts.

Alternatively, Right-Wing true believers could just accept that fact that their implications, inferences and predictions about Hillary (and the "inevitable" criminal charges) have proven to be the poop that every normal human ...more

Now that, as every unbiased, rational commentator has been predicting for months, the FINDING OF FACT by the Attorney General is that Hillary did nothing wrong, the extremist Right-Wing has fallen back on its standard armaments - - - baseless defamation, innuendo, and implication. Thus, by its "reasoning", the fact that Hillary has never been found culpable of any of the smears that it has broadcast against her indicates the existence of an enormous "conspiracy" (which includes ever public official ...more

Hillary Clinton Will Not Acknowledge That She Was Careless With Her Emails
Posted By Tim Hains
On Date July 8, 2016

Hillary Clinton rejects FBI director James Comey's characterization that she was "Extremely Careless" while handling classified material as Secretary of State.

His record of philanthropy--or, better put, lack of philanthropy-- is indicative of one of two things. Either his greedy lack of generosity or lies about his wealth.
