OWO...we have essentially lost the middle calls and almost all classes in some areas of the country...in case you haven't noticed. productivity by as many in the citizenry is what is needed. it will give everyone a purpose and a real sense of accomplishment. provide opportunity for the well-educated and adventuresome to thrive and create.

I'm not sure what country Trumps talking about but theres no way he' will ever do anything that will help regular people and thats the source of americas greatness ! You lose the regular people and this is what you get !

Coal....OWO, he just can't seem to get over the bias hurdle. he won't accept that Hillary is more beholding to the evil rich on wall street than Trump will ever be...based on her list of top donors verses his. like with the Jews mistaken image of jesus, i think many many have a mistaken image of who really is best to represent the people. Personally, i think Trump is the man at this time to lead the country. with the checks and balances in place along with experienced more than biased advisors, we may have a shot at righting the ship and making America Great Again!

Trump means he doesn't have to accept money from powerful groups that may ask for favors later. I don't know why that is so hard to understand.

OWO...go to open screts dot org to see the list of donors and their amounts for both Hillary and Donald. i covered this while you were "abcessing" or where ever you were.

Abby , just how do you know Hillary's" Wall Street friends " donated anything to her . What with your republicads citizen united travesty , thats not public record anymore !

between Hillary and Donald. the diference is glaringly clear as to who owes who. i find it odd that Hillaries Wall Street friends have so lovingly contributed to someone who has expressed so much disdain against them. i can see her now saying "i hate you, but thanks for the check" all the while either barking like a dog or cackling like a hen. Hillary being the front-runner for the demoratic machine, is a walking contradiction...that will be the nicest thing i can say about her. Bernie, while not my cup of tea is at least genuinely passionate about his politics unlike the political cameleon that is Hillary.

btw NCN, i appreciate your civil and factual response. it is refreshing. thank you.

NCN...i will ask you again. how much of the personal fortunes have Hillary or Bernie "loaned" their campaigns? it is much smarter to label the donation as a loan for many reasons. consider this....if Trump loans his campaign money, whom is he beholding to? well himself naturally. now ask yourself this....whom are the other candidates beholding to for their campaigns receipts? i feel certain it would not be themselvevs except in the situation where the "war chests " of non-contenders is transferred to another candidate. i had hoped you would agree that he, out of all of them, has used more of his "own" money than anyone else. Trump also stated that he would pull out of the race if he did not have the support from the american people. guess what, he has found support and is not only in the race but has become one of the front-runners when considering both parties. again...i ask you to compare the donor lists and the amounts in a head to head comparison betw

Trump said, "I'm self-funding my own campaign."

As of the end of 2015, Trump’s own contributions account for more than half of all money the campaign has taken in. He’s contributed far more of his own money than any other candidate this cycle.

However, a significant portion of his money comes from individual contributions. For several months last year, the campaign received far more dollars from potential voters than they did from Trump. Additionally, most of Trump’s contributions have been loans rather than donations, so he may hope to recoup those funds.

self funding I'm not so sure...

 The vast majority of Trump’s contributions to his own campaign — about $12.6 million — are loans rather than donations. This means he could expect to eventually recoup these funds.

Further, of the approximately $12 million Trump’s campaign spent in 2015, about $2.7 million went toward reimbursing Trump-affiliated companies for services provided to the campaign, such as traveling in his own plane and helicopter, according to a New York Times analysis.

being self-funded as anyone...but he does accept donations and receives monies from his product sales. the telling numbers are the "bang for the buck" that he is getting over any other candidate. that i think you will have to agree with. like i said....look at the donors lists for the front-runners and see who is in whoms pocket.

NCN...i see your point. please consider that "when put in context", he has out-donated to his own campaign at a ratio of about 2.5:1. Considering the sheer amount of monies that Bernie and Hillary have raised, it might be a good exercise for you to see how much of their personal fortune they have kicked in to run their campaigns...especially Hillary since her personal wealth far exceeds Bernies. ABC News reports that presidential hopeful and GOP front-runner Donald Trump took in $7.5 million in donations between April 2015 and January 2016. Although Trump has proclaimed he is self-funding his entire campaign, he has acknowledged that he does allow supporters to make funds donations as well as make contributions via the purchasing of Trump for President gear. His most recent FEC filing reveals he has received $7.5 million from donors and that he has personally contributed, mostly through self-funded loans, over $18 million.

i think that he comes about as close to being se

I suspect that he is getting a ton of money from a few. Same with Hillary.
