Trump’s plan is to make money

The Daily Herald - - OPINION -

Will some­one please tell if me I’m wrong on this is­sue: To Mr. Trump this gen­eral elec­tion cam­paign is a busi­ness ven­ture.

He uses Trump en­ter­prises — ho­tels, re­sorts, air­planes, spon­sored prod­ucts, “what­ever” — for his cam­paign events, which then bill the Repub­li­can Na­tional Com­mit­tee for their prod­ucts and ser­vices.

If Don­ald loses the elec­tion (and I some­times won­der if per­haps that is his plan) he will still walk away with mil­lions of dol­lars in fees and roy­al­ties paid to his busi­nesses.

No won­der Mr. Trump of­fers to “self-fi­nance” his cam­paign.

The re­turn on in­vest­ment is prob­a­bly quite gen­er­ous. I won­der how much he billed the RNC for his brief visit to Mex­ico on Aug. 31? Den­nis Hart
