Donald Trump has devoted much of his campaign to railing against a corrupt system where politicians must answer to their donors and to promising his supporters that he will break that mold....
As more super PACs continue to emerge, ... The candidate won't definitively rule out super PAC funding, instead suggesting that he doesn't want it for himself, but for the Republican Party. "I do love self-funding," he told MSNBC's Morning Joe in April. "... I really won't be asking for money for myself, I'll be asking money for the party." Trump campaign manager, ... is still ruling out the big-money groups entirely. "We don't have Super PACs," he told NBC News.
The battle over funding aside, however, the groups have near-identical goals: To help Trump win in a handful of key battleground states to ensure he takes the 270 Electoral College votes needed to nab the White House.... Great America PAC will target seven or eight battleground states, including Ohio, Florida and Pennsylvania. "We win those states," he said. Watts said CFAS is "holding their fire for now" but will look to set up strategic voter registration and get-out-the-vote programs as they see polling in to-be-determined....
A senior campaign source said that clarity will come over the course of the next week on a "number of subjects," including PACs. The source ... said Trump's silence on super PACs was intentional because he didn't want to further confuse his message. But the source insisted Trump hadn't strayed from his roots as an anti-big-money political outsider. "He's the same person today as when he announced," the source said, but added: "He's the nominee."
"There's responsibility that comes with that role. He still would like to self fund everything but he cant fund the party."

It’s Diamond and Silk. They suggested if 10M people donated $125 each Mr. T could get $1billion. They suggested doing it on his birthday - June 14th.
Along with their regular tweets and online videos, they’ve started Women4Trump.com and are starting to do events. I read yesterday that the one planned in Florida next month had to be moved to another venue because of the demand for tickets.
Here’s their website (videos portion):
