Ron Paul Slams Donald Trump For Presidential Endorsement
Written by 

campaignfinance2_0Ron Paul is taking a swipe at fellow Republican Donald Trump today.  It has been reported by CNN that Trump is considering running as a 3rd party candidate for President, however, Paul has other notions.

“The biggest recipient of all has been the Democratic Senate Campaign Committee of New York...”
 
“He donated $10,400 to Reid, including for his 2010 battle with Sharron Angle, the GOP nominee and tea party favorite.”
 
CNN: “Trump has a long history of assisting Democrats”
 
“Over the last two decades, Trump gave money to a number of high-profile Democrats and liberal icons, including Ted Kennedy, John Kerry, Hillary Clinton, Tom Daschle and Joe Biden.”
 
“The biggest recipient of Trump's largesse? The scandal-plagued Rangel…”
