Donald Trump and his top aides are going to be getting paid a lot more
- by admin
Donald Trump is expected to receive more than $200 million from his own campaign as he prepares to take office next month.
According to documents obtained by The Associated Press, Trump’s campaign and his political action committee will collectively receive a total of $200.6 million from the campaign, a total that is higher than the $164.6-million that Hillary Clinton and her allies received.
It is the second time Trump has received a major campaign donation.
His previous donations included a $100,000 contribution to the super PAC supporting Trump.
But those donations were also reported to be reported on the campaign’s FEC forms, which are publicly available.
The new total is also higher than any previous Trump campaign contribution.
The campaign has been using the FEC’s disclosure rules to avoid disclosing Trump’s payments to the campaign.
They have been using a different set of rules for payments to political committees, but Trump’s own PAC is expected, under FEC rules, to be able to report any payments from the Trump campaign to the same set of disclosure rules as other campaign committees.
The AP first reported this week that Trump’s 2016 campaign committee, the Trump Victory, had received $200,000 from the Donald J. Trump Foundation.
Trump and the campaign did not immediately respond to questions about the new payment.
The Trump campaign did report in a filing with the FEC last week that it was reimbursing the Trump Foundation $50,000 for a conference call and $150,000 in consulting fees.
Trump has previously accepted payments from a number of charities that he is not affiliated with, including the National Rifle Association, a charity that has also received large contributions from the billionaire.
