American leader Donald Trump may lose the support of multibillionaire Sheldon Adelson, who is the largest sponsor of the Republican Party, on the eve of the presidential election.
According to Politico, they had a telephone conversation last week. 87-year-old Adelson called Trump to discuss measures to support the economy during the pandemic, but he changed the topic and began to sharply reproach Adelson for not spending enough money on his re-election. Adelson did not enter into an argument.
According to the source of the publication, the American leader probably did not know how Adelson, who over the years donated tens of millions to support Trump, had already helped him.
After the conversation, representatives of the Republican Party were worried that Trump could lose the support of one of the main sponsors on the eve of the elections. However, people close to Adelson noted that it is not yet clear whether this episode will affect the businessman’s desire to fund Trump’s campaign.
The US presidential election will be held on November 3, 2020. According to the latest polls, Biden is ahead of Trump in votes in three strategically important states for the incumbent.
