These Candidates PROFITED from Being in Office — Trump LOST Money

For all the talk about President Donald Trump using his time in the White House to enhance his own finances, he sure has taken a hit right in the bank account.

Trump was an anomaly as soon as he walked down his escalator in late 2015. At the time, he was planning to finance his own campaign — which he was fully able to do as a billionaire. Because of this, major corporations, super PACs, and other lobbying organizations had far less influence over him. It’s no wonder why the RNC supported everyone except Trump in 2016…

In contrast, both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton made a fortune just from running for president. While Clinton never made it to the finish line, her pocket book surged. One thing is for sure: these funds didn’t come from ordinary Americans donating to her campaign…

Looking at these numbers, it’s hard to see how so many Americans can believe that Trump is in this for selfish reasons. The man was already outrageously rich on his own — he didn’t need to run for president. But, he did anyway, and in doing so sacrificed an untold amount of his own personal finances.
