Could Trump have jeopardized one of his biggest donors? President attacks GOP mega-donor Sheldon Adelson for not spending more - despite the Vegas mogul pledging $100M to his campaign

The president blasted one of his biggest benefactors in a heated phone call last week accusing him of not doing enough to support his campaign
Aldeson, 87, has shelled out millions to Trump's campaign and the Republican party over the years and had pledged a $100 million donation to his reelection
Three sources told Politico Trump's team went into damage control with the donor but Aldeson's sources warned it is unclear if the call will have cost Trump.

It comes at a critical time in Trump's campaign when he has faced a backlash from voters over his handling of the pandemic and the ongoing civil unrest
Trump's campaign still has a bigger war chest than Biden's, but donations from super PACs and TV advertising spend is lagging.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. President, this is amazing tone-deafness writ large; did you not have someone do the due dilligence for you before you called Adelson?!? Even in today's economy, sir, one-hundred million dollars is NOT "chump change".

I would politely suggest that your criticism of Adelson, before you had a really accurate sense as to what this man has already done for you, was a screamingly horrific mistake, and may well cost you the election.
