Report: Donald Trump Agreed to Call 24 Donors, Made It Through Three Before Giving Up
It is increasingly clear that Donald Trump is perfectly happy to be president, as long as he doesn’t have to work for it. But his campaign needs help—a lot of help—from the RNC, so he’s made them a series of promises, approximately zero of which he’s fulfilled so far.
In perhaps my favorite Trump anecdote yet, The Politico reports that Trump agreed to make calls to big-name donors, and then simply didn’t do it.
While Trump had promised Priebus that he would call two dozen top GOP donors, when RNC chief of staff Katie Walsh recently presented Trump with a list of more than 20 donors, he called only three before stopping, according to two sources familiar with the situation. It’s unclear whether he resumed the donor calls later.
I’m not a betting woman but here’s my guess—he didn’t.
