“Donald Trump himself at least claims to be a billionaire,” he said. “We don’t know, but he probably is. He is getting help from a multi-billionaire named Sheldon Adelson. So when you have multi-billionaires supporting other billionaires to be elected president that is not democracy that is oligarchy.”
The Hill reports:
Adelson, a longtime major GOP donor, endorsed Trump last week.
Trump has drawn scrutiny for months for not releasing his tax returns, with many onlookers speculating that he may be hiding something about his financial past.
