Trump campaign doesn't have much cash

How is he flying around everywhere? Even though he is the POTUS, when trips are campaign related his campaign should be funding them. But we all know the government is flipping the bill.

2. From what I've seen, the cost of flying somewhere and doing a rally is much much more bang

for your buck than buying tv commercials when it comes to voter-eyeball-minutes, because the national and local/regional media covers the rally and thereby gives him free air time.

3. Yeah but that costs money as well

When he flies to these rallies on AF1 the campaign is footing the bulk of the bill. Very expensive.

4. He's still got many tens of millions in campaign funds....

That's plenty to pay for the rallies, no?

6. At this point I would think so

But hes been using AF1 for a while now. Well probably never get an accurate accounting of how he spent most of the campaign money but we will with govt aircraft. Their cash burn on using this plane alone has likely been enormous over the last 12-months since he started doing purely political rallies.

It costs about 200k an hour to operate. So theoretically a 2 hour one way flight to a rally could cost the campaign up to 400k. Im not sure exactly what percentage the campaign must reimburse the govt for the costs but it is significant and would add up quickly.
