Sometimes, it’s hard to take Donald Trump at his word.
When pushed, though, The Donald usually lets everyone know exactly where he stands.
Such was the case when Trump found out the Ricketts family was spending money to help campaign against him.
From USA Today:
New campaign-finance reports show that Marlene Ricketts, the wife of billionaire T.D. Ameritrade founder J. Joe Ricketts, contributed $3 million to Our Principles PAC, a super PAC that blistered Trump with negative ads, voter guides and mailers ahead of the Iowa caucuses and the New Hampshire and South Carolina primaries. Katie Packer, who helped manage Mitt Romney’s 2012 presidential campaign, runs the group.
Virtually all the money the committee raised in January came from Ricketts, whose family owns the Chicago Cubs.
I hear the Rickets family, who own the Chicago Cubs, are secretly spending $'s against me. They better be careful, they have a lot to hide!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 22, 2016
Hmm. Could the Ricketts have another Cubs’ blockbuster deal in the works? Only time and Trump will tell.
Calls himself the best, thinks he's morally superior to rivals? Donald Trump as a Cardinals fan makes sense.— Kyle Koster, From Online (@KyleKoster) February 22, 2016
