Trump makes good on his promise donates money to his campaign

Republican nominee has made good on his recent promise to pour in more money to his campaign as he has just officially donated additional $10 million to his campaign, data from the Federal Election Commission show.

The fresh $10 million donation now puts the real estate mogul's personal contributions to his presidential campaign at $ 60 million.

Trump reiterated that he's ready to put in more money as the need arises. He said that he's willing to give what it takes, and that he's closely watching developments in the remainder of his campaign.

It was earlier reported that for early October, Trump donated a meager $31,000 to his campaign.

Over all, the vast discrepancies in the financial might of the campaigns of Hillary Clinton and her Democratic party and Donald Trump and his Republican camp exist. Latest data show that as of October 19, the Clinton campaign had $62 million on hand while Trump only has $16 million. The $62 million funds are separate from another $100 million that Clinton and her running mate Sen. Tim Kaine were able to raise for the Democratic party between October 1 and October 19.

Trump said that compared to him and the Republicans, in terms of money for the campaign, Clinton and the Democrats have a " machine", or that they are a " machine" themselves. Trump also hinted on the lack of leadership at the Republicans in raising campaign funds.

Trump also underscored that he's digging from his own pocket, unlike Clinton who's not putting money of her own. Trump gave a wait and see picture when asked if he's ready to specifically complete the $100 million total personal contributions he earlier floated, again depending on the needs of the campaign. What he's sure of, he said, is he's ready to always give more and to "meet what he has to meet."
