In a campaign promise, Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort has promised $5,000,000 for a “fancy new house” in a Miami-area mansion owned by former President Donald Trump.
Manafort told reporters in a press conference Friday that the campaign would pay for the house through a joint fundraising committee with the Miami-Dade County GOP.
The Miami-based political action committee, which is not required to disclose its donors, gave $10,000 to Manafort in July to help him launch the Trump campaign.
The Trump campaign did not respond to a request for comment on Friday.
Manafort’s campaign chairman, Rebekah Mercer, donated $250,000 in July, according to the Federal Election Commission, to help Trump win the election.
The two also donated $100,000 toward the Trump National Golf Club Miami in May.
Trump has a history of raising money for political causes.
He gave $250 million in 2015 to fund a Republican Senate campaign, $100 million to fund an election recount effort in Florida, $50 million to help fund a Trump Victory Fund, and $25 million to support former Attorney General Pam Bondi in her race to succeed Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
