If you have been receiving suspicious emails soliciting contributions to Donald Trump’s campaign for president, they are almost certainly bogus if they do not reference Trump’s campaign website, https://www.donaldjtrump.com/
If you would like to contribute to Trump’s campaign, I suggest you do it directly by clicking on the link to his website, https://www.donaldjtrump.com/
In the upper right corner you will see the prompt, “DONATE.” Click on that prompt and you will be taken to the secure donation page.
If you receive a request to donate to Donald Trump’s campaign, be very suspicious. The Donald has never asked me for a dime. I donate what I can afford monthly to his campaign, but I do it on my own. He has asked for nothing. Thoroughly check out any email you receive from anyone who claims to be associated with the Trump campaign.
A major shout out to Powdered Wig reader, Joe LaVeque, for this warning. Joe has pointed out two known bogus sites attempting to make money by claiming to be associated with the Trump campaign. They are not associated with Donald Trump, as Joe points out below.
