When I clicked on the link to join the Trust, Newt asked me for a donation. He suggested amounts a lot higher than $1 and offered me the chance to make it a recurring donation:
I took the survey and, when I submitted it, got another request for a donation. It looked a lot like Newt's.
This is my first experience with a political mailing list and I have a couple questions:
- Is this typical -- have other presidents requested donations this frequently and this early in their terms?
- If so, is the childish deception in these offers typical?
- Outside of Trump's base "base," are people stupid enough to fall for this sort of thing?
- Who actually gets the money?
