In order to get Donald Trump re-elected, his backers first need to keep him out of jail.
Trump’s campaign has paid at least eight different firms as consultants. The firm to get the most money was Jones Day, which represented the campaign for $350,000.
Trump has paid the firm owned by troll wrangler Brad Parscale, his 2020 campaign manager, about $1.7 million just this year. That’s almost half of its expenditures.
BuzzFeed also pointed out that Trump’s campaign cut a check for $22,000 to Johnny McEntee, Trump’s former man servant who was ushered out of the West Wing without his coat, apparently under the orders of Chief of Staff John Kelly and to the annoyance of Melania Trump.
