    Trump nearly quintupled the monthly rent his presidential campaign pays for its headquarters at Trump Tower to $169,758 in July,

    [...]

    Democrat Hillary Clinton has been leasing two entire floors in a Brooklyn office building totaling 80,000 square feet since the start of her campaign. The rent for that space has been about $212,000 per month.​

    But her office isn't in her own building right?

    It’s unclear from the campaign filings the purpose of the golf course and restaurant payments, although both of the Florida golf courses hosted Trump campaign news conferences in March. Also unclear from the filings is whether Trump is using more space in Trump Tower than he was in the spring and, if he is, why, given that his staffing is lower.​

    Hillary leases 2 floors of office space, Donald doesn't. Why would Donald quadruple his rent that he pays to his company? Scamming his donors while enriching his family and businesses. Say it ain't so Donald.

    For a guy who pretends to be some “storied,” “reporting-neutral” mainstream journalist and coorespondent, he sure does give away his fakeness with his anti-Trump obsession, see his full HuffPo history.

    But does that negate the story?

    You actually have no idea how much space Trump leases, and neither does the guy who published that HuffPo piece.

    It’s unclear from the campaign filings the purpose of the golf course and restaurant payments, although both of the Florida golf courses hosted Trump campaign news conferences in March. Also unclear from the filings is whether Trump is using more space in Trump Tower than he was in the spring and, if he is, why, given that his staffing is lower.​

    No. It’s questionable business practice and it possibly is Trump grifting his donors.
    --- Post Merged, Aug 23, 2016 ---
    The Clintons steal cash from donations to the CGI (grifting their donors) through tax free gifts to themselves, and the Clintons pay CGI staff upwards of $400,000+/year to sit in office buildings barely doing anything instead of actually using way more money to help the poor and disadvantaged.

    Its funny to me that you guys rail on about this while ignoring that your candidate deleted a ton of emails in an attempt to hide them from an investigation into her wrongdoing.

    Hillary is so crooked and slimy it's not even funny; yet you folks would rather stress over how much Trump is paying in rent? Typical!

    They aren't mutually exclusive.

    That's a pretty bold claim. I'm going to have to see a source on that.

    So? Is he lying about Trump enriching himself?

    He's the same as Obama? No way!
    --- Post Merged, Aug 23, 2016 ---
    Both sides seem to make that claim about the other. Care to ask why?
    --- Post Merged, Aug 23, 2016 ---
    And despite his having less staff, he's still managed to remain popular despite his apparent foot-in-mouth moments. But we both know that's not a good correlation to claim, or is it?
    --- Post Merged, Aug 23, 2016 ---
    Wow. Long list of Trump-centered stories. But he knows anything-Trump brings in the viewers and clicks needed for profitability. Seems biased not to mention a possible why to it all...

    As for one of those stories, the GOP did its own self-harm a long time ago, even the debates before Trump came in they were clearly out of touch with the people they want to govern. Trump had managed to touch on issues that made people believe that some in the GOP really aren't living under a rock and with enough passion in his mentioning them to get people to believe he was sincere. And as Trump went from Democrat to Independent to Republican, I wonder what else made him change his views over the years, there's generally an impetus or catalyst involved.
