Trump's campaign dished out $1.1M on hotels in final weeks, over $300,000 for Don Jr's book, reveal filings
The President has been determined to speak against the election results that saw President-elect Joe Biden win and has gone as far as raising $207 million since that day
According to recent filings, it has been reported that towards the last days of his campaigning, President Donald Trump's team spent $1.1 million at his hotels. Trump had traveled multiple times in those final months even though some of his rallies were called "spreader events" — there were many reports of people not ensuring social distancing or even wearing masks as a necessary precaution against the Covid-19 virus.
Unfortunately for the president, he lost by 7 million votes but reportedly earned $1.1 million in revenue. Trump had traveled to his casino in Las Vegas and other properties of his such as the Mar-a-Lago. He also went to fundraisers in Doral and Bedminister. Ironically enough, the president didn't win over Nevada or Arizona. In addition, the campaign also spent $2 million on "election lawyers".
The Daily Mail reported that the filings revealed that $1.06 million was spent by Trump Victor at the end of November and that the spending had come from the POTUS' properties in Vegas, Doral and Mar-a-Lago in Florida and Bedminster in New Jersey. Apparently, the expenses that involved room bookings among other fees went up to $100,000.
Furthermore, it was revealed that Donald Trump Jr also benefited as $300,000 was paid by the Republican National Committee (RNC) to a company that he owns to buy copies of 'Liberal Privilege', his book. Trump's son helps run the Trump Organization, undoubtedly. Even people that paid the RNC $100 to help, among other things, with legality bills that were for the opposition of mail-in ballot, also received copies of the book.
The entire title of the book is 'Liberal Privilege: Joe Biden and the Democrats' Defense of the Indefensible' and was self-published by Donald Trump Jr on September 1, 2020.
Since the results of the election were made public, Trump cried wolf when he was adamant that Biden won illegally due to voter fraud — many that support him, also believe this to be true. The President has been determined to speak against the election results that saw President-elect Joe Biden win and has gone as far as raising $207 million since that day, as he continued to appeal for his "election defense fund".
The publication reported that those funds go to PAC and can pay for the presidents' travel. Mary Trump, the president's estranged niece and author of 'Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World's Most Dangerous Man', held an interview with VICE where she said, "He's the only person I've ever met who can gaslight himself. I don't think he's ever accepted the truth of the loss."
Meanwhile, Trump has already said that he was going to run in 2024 on December 1, 2020, at a Christmas party at the White House. The Daily Beast also reported that Trump is planning to hold an event during Biden's inauguration to reveal his 2024 plan, frankly saying that Biden is "boring" and the networks will still cover stories on him even if he wasn't in the White House.
