Donald Trump's campaign managers said they raised $37 million for this year's primaries, but who are the financiers?

Donald Trump’s campaign managers said they raised $37 million for this year’s primaries, but who are the donors? The latest financial movements are not very clear, however we know today who contributed to his run for the presidency of the United States.

Trump running in the American primaries: 37 million raised from donors

For his run in the American primaries and the electoral campaign in view of the next elections, former president Donald Trump’s team claimed to have 37 million dollars in the bank, a considerable and decidedly much higher than that of the Republican rivals in the race.

It must be said, however, that it is not yet clear exactly how much he actually raised in total for the presidential campaign because the data for the third quarter of fundraising was not provided. The official numbers will be released after the January audit. However, many media are following the news according to which the total amount raised would be 45 million dollars.

Another thing that we don’t know precisely now is who exactly are the people and organizations that are contributing. But we can try to get an idea of who Trump’s supporters are starting from the multinationals that financed the campaign in the previous election his election campaign.

The multinationals behind Trump’s latest election

OpenSecrets, on the other hand, which is a non-profit organization based in Washington that tracks and publishes data on the financing of US political campaigns, collected the contributions received for Trump’s campaign in 2020, identifying the multinationals that invested the most in 2020 .

Here are the main donors:

  • Las Vegas Sands with $45,010,542;
  • Adelson Clinic for Drug Abuse Treatment & Research with $45,005,600;
  • America First with $37,416,082;
  • Walt Disney Co with $10,589,052;
  • Laura & Isaac Perlmutter Foundation with $10,500,000;
  • Energy Transfer LP with $10,033,580;
  • Marcus Foundation with $10,000,000.


Then we find:

  • Eshelman Ventures LLC with $7,000,000;
  • GH Palmer Assoc with $6,005,600;
  • Hendricks Holding Co with $5,007,548;
  • Uline Inc with $4,093,701;
  • Pulse Biosciences with $4,005,600;
  • Stephens Inc with $3,520,490;
  • Blackstone Group with $3,034,030;
  • Mountaire Corp with $1,500,100;
  • Irving Moskowitz Foundation with $1,300,000;
  • Beal Bank (Employees) with $1,109,555;
  • Cerberus Capital Management with $1,087,624;
  • RDV Corp with $1,034,369;
  • Intercontinental Exchange Inc with $1,018,537.

Furthermore, perhaps not everyone knows that in 2020 Donald Trump never made donations for his re-election. That is, he never spent his personal money but found many multinationals willing to write him checks. Forbes, for example, identified 133 super-rich donors who contributed to his previous campaign.

Trump’s tycoons, who collectively make up about 14% of all American billionaires, tend to fall into a few specific categories.

Many were longtime Republican mega-donors, such as gambling magnate Sheldon Adelson, who died in January, and his wife Miriam. Others knew Trump from his business days, including Texas banker Andy Beal and casino king Phil Ruffin.

About a quarter of them earned in finance and investing, more than any other sector. About 10% got rich in real estate, while roughly the same percentage made a fortune in the energy sector. Most of them came from three states: New York (19%), Texas (19%), and Florida (13%).
