Proving his commitment to winning the presidency and making America great again, presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump issued a press release Thursday, confirming he will not be accepting any repayment for the nearly $50 million he has loaned to his campaign from his personal funds.
In the final chapter of his book, “The Art of the Deal,” written 29 years ago, he stated, “I’ve spent the first twenty years of my working life building, accumulating, and accomplishing things that many said could not be done. The biggest challenge I see over the next twenty years is to figure out some creative ways to give back some of what I’ve gotten.” He added, “What I admire most are people who put themselves directly on the line.”
DONALD J. TRUMP FULLY EXTINGUISHES CAMPAIGN LOAN OF MORE THAN $50 MILLION
(New York, NY) June 23, 2016 – Donald J. Trump has just announced he has honored the pledge he made on May 13, 2016, when he stated, “I have absolutely no intention of paying myself back for the nearly $50 million dollars I have loaned to the campaign. This money is a contribution made in order to ‘Make America Great Again.”
Mr. Trump has fully extinguished (terminated) this loan per his commitment. Therefore, he has personally invested in excess of $50 million dollars in the future of our country. Unlike the all talk, no action politicians that have failed the American people for far too long, Mr. Trump is not beholden to the special interests that have corrupted Washington, D.C. Mr. Trump will continue to put America and our people first.
After self-funding his primary election, Mr. Trump and the campaign have assembled an exceptional fundraising operation, which in recent days has been overwhelmed with contributions for the Republican Party. Mr. Trump will continue to ensure the campaign has all of the resources necessary to defeat Crooked Hillary Clinton and the Democrats in November.
