    Another story from the "I surround myself with the best people" file, Donald Trump's campaign is sending emails to foreign nationals and requesting donations. This was a part of his first e-mail campaign which he dubbed "highly successful" and which others are calling fraught with rookie mistakes.

    The Federal Election Campaign Act (FECA) prohibits any foreign national from contributing, donating or spending funds in connection with any federal, state, or local election in the United States, either directly or indirectly. It is also unlawful to help foreign nationals violate that ban or to solicit, receive or accept contributions or donations from them. Persons who knowingly and willfully engage in these activities may be subject to fines and/or imprisonment.

    He needs to start doing this now so he can catch up to Hillary and all her foreign donations she has been receiving for years.

    The comment you quoted was sarcasm.

    I admit that I did not see that one. Thought that it was a bit of an over the top comment from you. *laugh*

    Cheers.
