INTERESTING: President TRUMP, who hasn't contributed a penny to his campaign since taking office, pledges in a fundraising email to "match" $3M worth of grassroots donations to his campaign ahead of the midterms. Yet another first for a sitting president in the modern era.

UPDATE: The TRUMP campaign tells me that is NOT going to donate any of his own $ to his campaign, despite emailing donors asking them to "make a contribution of $5 … & I will MATCH it dollar-for-dollar." Apparently that refers to him transferring DONOR $ to the RNC.

META: In RNC fundraising email, TRUMP says he is "personally matching" all donations, & warns of an "intercepted" fundraising email from @NancyPelosi in which she says she is "personally triple-matching" donations. * SPOILER ALERT: neither of them are donating their own $.

THE 'EVERYONE DOES IT' EXCUSE: After I pointed out that TRUMP was not "personally matching" donations, his campaign sent out another fundraising email repeating the false claim, but also pointing out that @NancyPelosi had made a similar false claim in a fundraising email.

Trump just emailed supporters claiming he's "PERSONALLY MATCHING $3 MILLION" ... still not true?

depends on how you define "personally." if you define it as his personal money, then, no, it's not true. if you define it as his donors' money, donated to his campaign, then, yes, it's true.

...he declared candidacy and has been raising $$ since he was inaugurated so I'd love to see those books... plus that funny biz with the inauguration $... he's pocketing most of it through shell companies or some scheme.

He lies right to his donors and they likely still won’t care.

Yes. Trump isn’t draining the swamp. Trump is draining the Treasury.

Exactly. It would be the day Trump would lay down his own dime for anything.

Expecting Trump to give away his money is like expecting the Mafia to return protection money.

So, I guess he's just laundering it through RNC.
