    Donald Trump has increased the wager on his presidential campaign by investing his own money for the first time into his national organization, NBC News reported. 

    Trump released new financial data about his campaign late Sunday night, as required by federal election law, and the numbers suggest an operation built for the long haul. And for the last three months added $10.8 million of his own money in loans and a $100,000 donation. 

    Supporters also donated $2.6 million, with the most money coming from Florida and California. While the billionaire candidate often boasts about self-funding, in the previous quarter, small donors actually provided more money to the campaign than he did.
