Major GOP Donors Asking Trump for Their Money Back

The fundraiser who collected the donations, also known as a "bundler," said that the two donors together have contributed or raised tens of thousands of dollars for Trump



    Two generous donors to Donald Trump's campaign are having buyer's remorse and want their money back after a video recording of Trump describing unwanted sexual advances on women, according to emails obtained by NBC News from a bundler raising money for Trump.

    "I cannot express my disappointment enough regarding the recent events surrounding Mr. Trump," one donor wrote to a Trump fundraiser in an email with the subject line "Trump support withdrawal."

    A second donor also requested his money be returned because he is "mortified" over the leaked videotape, according to another email obtained by NBC News.

    Senior Trump spokesman Jason Miller said the campaign is "unaware of any donors making such a request."

The rally was held the day following the final debate, during which the issue of whether he would accept the election results came up.
