Setting their sights low, the campaign of presumptive 2016 GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump sent out an “emergency” email Saturday morning with a goal of raising $100,000 by the end of the day — for a campaign that is expected to cost in the hundreds of millions.
With the Clinton campaign launching a multi-million dollar ad blitz at Trump in the wake of his ill-timed comments on the Orlando shooting, the Trump campaign is making an appeal to Republican donors at the same time that the party appears to be shunning him.
According to the email, “Right now we’re facing an emergency goal of $100,000 to help get our ads on the air. We need your contribution by 11:59 P.M. tonight,”
The email continues, “Crooked Hillary is about to invade your TV with ads attacking Mr. Trump. But we’re preparing to fight back,” adding Trump has plans to attack Clinton over Benghazi and the FBI probe into her use of a private email server while serving as secretary of state.
The past week hasn’t been a good one for Trump with plummeting poll numbers and fellow Republicans avoiding talking about the man who could very well be the face of the party going into November’s election.
