Donald Trump Will Need Money. Lucky for Him, He's Got NY Values

It’s hard to imagine that billionaire Donald Trump needs any money, but according to one campaign watcher, he will.

It’s hard to imagine that billionaire Donald Trump needs any money. But he will, according to one expert, and is now in a better position to get it. Jim Tankersley, a reporter at the Washington Post, said Trump’s comments on ‘New York values’ will likely resonate with some potentially important Republican supporters – those with fat wallets. ‘Donald Trump’s answer I think is the sort of thing that could rally a particularly interesting group of Republicans, which are, the people who fund campaigns. There are a lot of them in New York,’ said Tankersley. ‘Now they’re not giving a lot to Donald Trump because he’s not really raising money. But they are the type of people he needs to win over at least a little bit if he wants to be the Republican nominee. Saying things like this might be a small step toward palatability, if you will, in the eyes of that monied class on Wall Street that Trump would need behind him if he wants to actually win a general election.’ TheStreet's Rhonda Schaffler has details from New York.
