After Saying He Doesn’t Need Donations, Trump Starts an Online Fundraiser

trumpAfter endless reminders of how rich he is and how he won’t ask anyone for money for his campaign, Donald Trump is now taking contributions for his campaign.

As the 2016 plutocrat continues to defend himself against his latest controversial fight against Megan Kelly, Trump decided to call on his grassroots supporters to help him compensate the blitz of media personalities and rival candidates set against him.

““I want to show the liberal media that not since the days of Ronald Reagan has there been such a grassroots movement of people ready to transform our party and our country,” Trump said.

The statement reads as a continuation of Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan, while also promising that he would not stop standing against the “liberal media and GOP establishment.” Trump also attacked Jeb Bush once again, saying that even though he is asking for money, he will match all donations with his own money, and that he cannot be bought as he says Bush is.

“I will never back down or apologize in the fight to make America great again,” the statement reads. “Stand with me and send a powerful message to the establishment by supporting my campaign.”

TIME’s Zeke Miller tweeted out a picture of the fundraising form. He said that the message was sent to the email supporters list of former presidential hopeful Herman Cain, in addition to Trump’s .
