Despite his persistent claims to the contrary, Donald Trump still isn’t self-funding his campaign. (Trump yet again lied about not taking any donations as recently as last Friday; it’s one of several unsubstantiated claims that’s guaranteed play during any given stump speech of his.)
Last week, Trump named hedge fund manager Steve Mnuchin his national finance chairman, and today Trump’s bringing on another Wall Street investor, Anthony Scaramucci, to further bolster his national finance team.
Scaramucci, who was a national finance chair for Mitt Romney in 2012, according to the Washington Post, was similarly involved in Scott Walker and Jeb Bush’s campaigns this cycle.
Now, Scaramucci’s promising to “raise a ‘historic’ sum of money” for Donald Trump.
Again: Donald Trump is not self-funding his campaign.
