    In 2013 and 2014, Donald Trump Funded John Boehner and Mitch McConnell Against the Tea Party

    By Erick Erickson | January 22, 2016, 11:58pm

    In 2013, the tea party rallied to Matt Bevin against Donald Trump. RedState and tea party groups around the country swung into action in an ultimately unsuccessful bid to get Matt Bevin through the primary against Mitch McConnell. We were completely out-funded by establishment interests and Washington lobbyists.

    It turns out, one of those establishment interests was Donald J. Trump.

    In 2013, Donald Trump gave $220,000.00 to organizations, many of them dedicated to stamping out the Tea Party. From Karl Rove’s American Crossroads to Mitch McConnell’s Super PAC, Trump spread out money. Rove got $50,000.00 and McConnell got $60,000.00. Trump also wrote a check to McConnell’s campaign directly for $5,200.00.

    What’s more, Trump also gave $100,000.00 to the Congressional Leadership Fund, a Republican Establishment PAC that was created to crush conservatives at the behest of John Boehner.
    Running as an anti-establishment Republican now and courting Sarah Palin is a distraction from two stark facts.

    • In 2010, with the rise of the Tea Party, Trump supported Democrats against conservatives.
    • In 2014, Donald Trump supported the Republican Establishment as it sought to crush the tea party and conservatives.

    It is seriously disingenuous to think Trump is somehow now against the very candidates and organizations he funded just two years ago — candidates and politicians he is already again starting to say nice things about.

    If follow Trumps history it makes sense. In a way he was buying himself more into the GOP to be seen as a Republican. Trump himself said years ago he realized that the system was so rigged by the GOP and DNC that no independent had a chance of ever winning. Trump is also a fairly middle ground Independent on some issues slanting left or heavy left and on others slanting right or heavy right. He saw there was no chance of him being accepted on the Dem ticket especially given key agenda issues he has are huge race games for the Dems such as border security, illegal aliens, and protecting American workers from foreign workers.

    Further there was no real Tea Party national group that united the Tea Party. There were a few claimed Tea Party national groups but they were really more of wolves in disguise to gain power through the TP card or to discredit the TP. I was a sucker by a number of major TP *national* groups and after awhile started to realize they really didn't believe in what real Americans and the TP was founded on but were really GOP type politicians trying to ride the TP name into power. It became very hard to know who was who and have any idea who was real or not. After all just look at Cruz who played the TP card and still does at times yet is all bought out to sell out Americans.
