The Americans Trump betrayed by courting big-money donors

Last September, after Trump pledged to self-fund, Tanner Buckmaster responded on Facebook by declaring, “I am defending you to everyone I know. I sure hope you are real because I am putting my child’s future in your hands.” Now Buckmaster and every other Trump supporter can see that the pledge to self-fund was a blatant lie. I wonder how many will keep supporting Trump and how many will reconsider. It’s no easy thing to face the fact that you’ve been duped by a conman. The smartest marks wise up. The ones in deepest denial get taken for all they’re worth.
