The GOP presidential candidate is now officially $50 million in the hole after a "personal loan" he made to his own campaign last month is now officially a contribution — meaning he will not see a dime of that money back!
Back on May 13, The Donald loaned his campaign $50 million with the intention that it wouldn't be a big deal — just a short-term investment the campaign could pay back quickly.
Well… things didn't turn out that way. Campaign contribution rules would have required Trump's campaign to pay that loan back by August, and that's just not going to happen.
In a press release on Thursday, the real estate mogul's team dropped a statement painting this whole financial meltdown in the most positive light they could… but it still looks pretty bad (below):
"Donald J. Trump has honored the pledge he made on May 13, 2016, when he stated, 'I have absolutely no intention of paying myself back for the nearly $50 million dollars I have loaned to the campaign. This money is a contribution made in order to 'Make America Great Again.' Mr. Trump has fully extinguished (terminated) this loan per his commitment. Therefore, he has personally invested in excess of $50 million dollars in the future of our country."
"Mr. Trump and the campaign have assembled an exceptional fundraising operation, which in recent days has been overwhelmed with contributions for the Republican Party. Mr. Trump will continue to ensure the campaign has all of the resources necessary to defeat Crooked Hillary Clinton and the Democrats in November."
The brunette shared a sweet photo with her former flame and penned a heartbreaking caption in his memory.
The late sports star's longtime love reflected on their time together, writing:
"My deepest love goes out to those who saw jose as more than an athlete, but as a passionate, raw human being. The heart break is unbearable. There was so much more to him than anyone could even begin to understand. I'm fortunate enough to have loved and be loved by jose, and his family, for over 3 crazy beautiful years."
Miz Mendoza admitted she will always love the 24-year-old, and told her followers to never take moments with their loved ones for granted, adding:
