Shel­don Adel­son, the bil­lion­aire founder and CEO of Las Ve­gas Sands and one of Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s largest donors, has died at 87 from com­pli­ca­tions re­lated to treat­ment for non-Hodgkin’s Lym­phoma, the casino com­pany an­nounced Tues­day. Adel­son brought singing gon­do­liers to the Las Ve­gas Strip, yet in his later years, he be­came known for his po­lit­i­cal ac­tivism. With an es­ti­mated net worth of $41.4 bil­lion, Adel­son and his wife, Miriam, had con­trib­uted more than $123 mil­lion to con­ser­va­tive politi­cians in the 2018 elec­tion cy­cle – more than any other U.S. cit­i­zen.
