Coming soon.... The Donald Trump PAC / Party.

I've suspected early on, back in February that Trump doesn't really want to be President, but generate enough of a following to create a post-election political party that he can con and milk for all their worth.

Current polling has Trump getting possibly as low as 38% of the popular vote.

Now, in 2012, almost 130 million votes were cast.

38% of 130 million is almost 50 million.

In addition, let's say, after losing next month, 20% of those voters desert him. He would still have 40 million that support him.

Furthermore, with this newly formed pseudo PAC/party, he would probably ask each of the 40 million to donate just $20 to his cause.

Let's say only half do just that. That would still be $400 million.

You just know Trump would pocket at least half of that for himself and his family, giving him $200 million.

Then he and Steve Bannon would create a Youtube channel and Facebook video presence, and asking his 40 million followers every 6 months or so for another $20.

That's how he gets hundreds of millions of dollars each year in income.

By bilking naive, gullible, Trump followers.

Donald J. Trump. The modern-day P.T. Barnum.

2. GOP is going to have a schism or it will get marginalized.

Either

A) They eject the T / tRump zealots, who go form their own party,

OR

B) The mainline Republicans leave the GOP and form their own party. The GOP, or rather the rump / tRump remnants of it coalesce retaining the Republican name, but the party is from then on not Grand. Could be even more so the Grump Old Palefaces than they are now.
