Trumps megarijke donateurs brengen $50,5 miljoen bijeen

By Duncan Mil

April 29, 2024 - Wealthy allies of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump have collectively donated more than $50 million to support his candidacy against Democratic incumbent Joe Biden.

Timothy Mellon, an 81-year-old heir of the Pittsburgh-based Mellon banking family, now is the largest single donor to political action committees (PACs) backing not one but two presidential candidates: Donald Trump and Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

As the political landscape continues to shift, polls suggest that Kennedy’s presence on the ballot could potentially disrupt the status quo, taking votes from both Biden and Trump in November’s election.

Mellon hails from one of the best-known philanthropic families in the U.S., one with long-standing ties to the Kennedys. Heirs to a significant banking fortune, Forbes estimates that the Mellon family is worth $14.1 billion.
