I have bad news about Trump's donors. He is not only getting money from John and Jane Doe. In 2020, for example, his PAC received a combined $15 million from Isaac Perlmutter and his wife. Isaac Perlmutter is with Disney (Marvel).
Doesn't necessarily sound like a problem, until you see Trump jabbing at DeSantis for trying to confront The Mouse, insinuating that it's a waste of time. He has appeared to do a 180 only in the past day or so (probably because Republican voters overwhelmingly approve of the efforts against Disney).
As another example, Trump selected Rex Tillerson, the oil and gas CEO, as his first SecState. Tillerson was more than likely considered because of his company's support of the GOP, and he turned out to be a dud. Unfortunately, Pompeo (the CIA director!) was also pretty bad.
And most recently Donald Trump Jr. threw cold water on the Bud Light boycott. He stated outright that we as conservatives should ease up on Anheuser-Busch, because they donate a lot of money to the GOP. It was a very important opportunity to put principles over money, and he wasted it. Who knows how much more money Annheuser might have lost, if Trump Jr. had used his megaphone to rally other conservatives?
I want Trump to be the man of the people too. I want him to ignore the outside money. But I can't ignore his bad personnel and endorsement decisions.
"Yeah, that's me. You're probably wondering how I got into this situation."

Bruce has a short memory. Trump was chastising states who wanted to reopen "early".
And Team Trump was very proud of the fact that Trump was listening to Fauci.
There is too much bad blood between Trump and DeSantis, it is unlikely that Trump would endorse him, even if DeSantis won the primary clean and fair. Trump has shown some seriously bad judgment (selecting Wray and listening to Kushner), so I encourage you to make your decision irrespective of Trump's opinion.
I will vote for Ron or Don next November, accordingly, even if they aren't on speaking terms. My #1 goal is to replace Chomo Joe.
What? Ivana Marie "Ivanka" Trump is not dead, nor is her democrat husband Jared Kushner, thank God.
And their influence on him is not "minimized".
Such is the consequence of destroying the housing market by endlessly importing illegal immigrants.
Unless this Redditor is in the 0.00001% that votes conservative, then he voted to crank up the demand for housing (namely cheaper housing) while doing nothing to improve supply.
What were you expecting?
Yeah, he showed his true colors by standing for fiscal sanity and refusing to endorse the guy that threw a temper tantrum and called for his expulsion.
"Bravery" and "loyalty" = kissing the ring of people that try to destroy your career.
Sounds like you're not following Trump close enough.
Massie is one of the most conservative members of the House. The Donald called for him to be expelled from the House, for the heinous, unpardonable crime of voting against an inflationary covid "relief" bill.
And now Massie is supporting DeSantis. So this is the part where you call Massie a "disloyal, irrelevant cuck" or something.
Trump staffed his admin with Swamp Creatures. How many times does he get to appoint or endorse a backstabber before you start asking questions?
So true! DeSantis should stop listening to his wife (who is bad for some reason) and take policy advice from a conservative genius like Ivanka Trump.
Without using an internet search, can you name five of RFK's policy positions, other than his vaccine skepticism?
Did Trump push any kind of equivalent of that Parental Rights bill while he was in office? Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't recall him taking action while in office against the filth being put on our library shelves.
Based off the comments none of you realize that he's supported by Thomas Massie.
And Trump is supported by "Caitlyn" Jenner.
Trump told you to get the jab and his son told you to keep buying Bud Light. Do you always wait for them to tell you what to think and do?
Trump sat on his hands and did nothing while Ronna cruised to re-election. He openly supported McCarthy for Speaker while the holdouts were begging for table scraps. Now McCarthy is buckling over the debt ceiling, and Trump is busy complaining about Bad Meatball Man.
I guess you could say that Trump... stabbed the holdouts in the back.
Donald Jr. begs conservatives to leave Bud Light alone, citing their donations to the GOP:
Isaac Perlmutter (of Disney/Marvel) donates $ 7.5 million to Trump's PAC. His wife also donated $ 7.5 million:
So was it Jeb or Romney that told DeSantis to push that Parental Rights bill?
On that note, who told Trump to select Chris Wray?
You hate Thomas Massie?
Really funny that Donald Junior of all people is Retweeting this, after he was begging conservatives to give Bud Light another chance.
"Pleeeeeaaase, we need Bud Light's corporate money! Leave them alone!"
If you've ever needed an example of a Gated Community Liberal or a Champagne Socialist, look no further than the entire city of NYC.
I will vote for Trump (again) if he is the nominee. Actually, between Don and Ron, there are few Republicans that I would vote for in a general.
I disagree about the Jeb comparison, and given the left's constant shrieking about how "horrible" Florida is, that to me almost proof enough that he'd be a half-decent president. As for Trump, he's 1000x better than the meat puppet in the Oval Office now.
After the primary, I do agree that we need to close ranks and vote (as long as there's not some Clown World occurrence that makes Nikki Haley the nominee). Until then, I only want people to be sober and honest about both candidates. Trump should rip DeSantis for his questionable foreign policy, and DeSantis should rip Trump for his unforced errors (that bump stock ban). I want an assurance from Ron that he won't listen to John Bolton, and I want an assurance from Don that he won't listen to Jared Kushner.
Jack left out the part where Trump surrendered his administration to Fauci in 2020 and then started simping for Cuomo to own DeSantis in the past few days
"It's DeSantis' fault for following Trump's lead and promoting the vaccine that Trump himself was constantly boasting about."
Are you sure this is the argument you want to settle on?
Not quite. I'm saying that Neoliberalcons in the US who are addicted to cheap Chinese goods enabled the rise of China, during the same time that they were scaring Russia into a "cornered animal" position, because they never sobered up from their Cold War mindset. But they are not the least bit interested in the disarmament of America (the military industrial complex has never been stronger). They are 100% in favor of the disarming and demoralization of American citizens.
The Bidens and Bushs of the US would be happy to see an uncontested American-led global hegemony, as long as that hegemony is exporting garbage like unrestricted abortion and "drag queen story hour".
That RDS Tweet is from very early in the pandemic. Everybody was stepping on rakes during that time, DeSantis and Trump included. The Trump war room was all in favor of the Trump/Fauci circus throughout 2020. Here's a highlight real of some really bad moments.
Hindsight is 20/20 you say? Fine, but Bad Meatball Man gets the same excuse.
If Trump seriously wants to wreck DeSantis, then the CCP Virus is probably the worst topic for him to use. Assail his foreign policy instead.
