The New York Times reported last week that President Donald Trump’s campaign manager is actually channeling money to Eric Trump’s wife, Lara Trump, and Donald Trump Jr.’s girlfriend, Kimberly Guilfoyle.
These payments have gone unnoticed by the public because they are set up to be made from campaign manager Brad Parscale’s private San Antonio based company, Parscale Strategy.
Normally, these type of payments could be viewed by the public under requirements from the Federal Election Commission so that people can see how their campaign contributions are being used.
Of course, in THIS case, those campaign contributions, many from hard working Americans, are being used to pay members of Trump’s family. Kind of hard to swallow, isn’t it?
The Trump family is benefitting from a strategic network of politically connected privately owned companies that, with support and help from Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, have charged around $75 million to the Trump campaign, the Republican National Committee, and other Republican entities since 2017.
Two witnesses even reported to the Times that last year Guilfoyle flipped out on Parscale over some late checks that were due to be paid to her.
He reportedly promised that his wife, Candice Parscale, who is often in charge of accounts for his company, would handle the situation. t
Lara Trump, wife of DJT, Jr., has most recently become news material for mocking Trump rival Joe Biden’s stutter, which he has had since he was a child. Looks like she’s been taking some lessons in bullying from her father-in-law.
Lara Trump was originally to serve as a liaison between the company and Donald Trump’s campaign, which operates out of Trump Tower in Manhattan and Parscale was appointed Trump’s reelection campaign manager in 2018.
In January, the Trump campaign announced that Guilfoyle, who is a former Fox News personality, would be responsible for leading the joint fundraising effort between the campaign and the Republican National Committee.
in 2018, Guilfoyle left Fox News after human resources investigation into accusations of inappropriate behavior. Guilfoyle’s attorney denies the allegations and called them “unequivocally baseless.”
Parscale has declined requests to comment but he has said in the past that given current campaign finance law requirements, private companies could provide greater flexibility to a campaign.
