Trump made $1.6b as President, raising concerns of fraudPosted by Annie May / February 23, 2021
Immediately after the election, Trump has raised $207 million for the alleged purpose of fighting voter fraud, but he has only used about $8 million. Trump is set to leave the White House with $850,000 of campaign rally debts. Some cities, like El Paso, are planning to bring the Trump campaign to court to get their money.
There has been speculation that, this whole time, Donald Trump was “very aware” that he lost the election, but he allegedly put up a fight as a “performance”. Some 80% of Trump’s supporters think that Biden’s win was illegitimate. This has terribly implications for our nation. If we lose faith in our system, our system collapses. Now that Trump has no real chance, let’s see how he and his followers deal.
About a week ago, Trump began to openly admit that Biden won the election, in his own, petty way. He couldn’t do it immediately or risk losing face with his supporters. Around the same time, the Trump campaign has dropped its ridiculous lawsuit demanding a ballot recount in Arizona, after they realized that the margin of victory could not be overcome.
We wonder how much money Trump made from his “election fraud defense fund,” which he used to fundraise for his own legal fees pay off campaign debts. Will it be enough to pay off that $850,000 bill?
