There are rumors that Donald Trump may drop out of the race…even if he wins. Will he quit for a mere $150,000,000? Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.
“How much would it cost to get Donald Trump to give up his presidential run and walk away?
“I bet if someone offered him $150 million to drop out, he would,” one former Trump adviser told POLITICO, unprompted, during an interview Friday.
Asked about whether Trump would drop out, another former Trump adviser, Jim Dornan said he believes the presumptive GOP nominee would be willing to cut a deal. “Yeah, probably,” Dornan, a veteran Republican operative who worked for Trump last spring on an abortive effort to set up a super PAC, replied via text message — adding there would be plenty of interest in buying him out. “The Kochs would be the first in line.”
Trump himself says it’s a ridiculous proposition and that he’s not a fan of the question.
“This story is a total fabrication from you and POLITICO, as usual,” the New York billionaire said in an email sent by his campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski. “I will never leave the race, nobody has enough money to pay me to leave the race, and if they did, it would be totally illegal anyway. Did Obama and the Clintons get you to write this garbage?”
