Trump spent 600 million, 66 million of that was his own dough. It's still sick that's the kind of money it costs to run for president.

spending large amounts money on a political campaign with a cause people actually would have benefited from (as in, not letting trump screw over pretty much everyone) is "disgusting" while spending large amounts of money on gold-plated furniture for your penthouse in a tower named after yourself is perfectly reasonable, apparently

And people were saying Trumps bid was a big waste of money. Poetic justice.

It's called the real estate business. You don't think trump makes a profit from people leasing space in his buildings? People who work for a living have to make a profit in order to survive. We can't all get kickbacks from the Saudis, bankers, unions and tech companies.

i mean, i was talking about the part of it that, as far as i'm aware, is specifically for trump and his family to live in

but like . . . are you seriously trying to compare trump to the average american here? saying he's this honest hardworking guy who HAS to attract customers with gold-plated furniture or whatever just to make ends meet? i don't even know how to respond to that because it's the dumbest thing i've heard in a long time

No I'm saying he earned his money and can do whatever he likes with it. I bet Hillary has a bunch of gold plated adult diaper baskets and such. God only knows what perverted things Bill Clintion had gold plated.. Do you think he is the only rich dude with gold plated stuff??

the money circulates. Although it seems much it's staying within the country. No damage being done

my point is that using money to further a political cause other average people could actually benefit from is generally considered a more morally acceptable thing than spending insane amounts on your own personal luxuries, so it's interesting that the former is the only one you take issue with. i just think it's weird how trump supporters tend to act like they distrust the wealthy elite while at the same time worshipping an exaggerated stereotype of an Evil Rich Guy

do other rich people have this kind of stuff? probably, sure, at least to some extent. but it sure seems like trump loves to flaunt his extravagant wealth a lot more than the average politician. which makes sense, given that being super rich was kind of his whole gimmick before being super racist became his whole gimmick
