The Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has invested over 43 million dollars of his own money on his presidential campaign, writes AP, who has gone through the billionaire's accounts.
None of the other candidates are in the vicinity of the economic sacrifice that Trump makes to hope to become America's next president.
According to opensecrets.org, neither Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders use their own money on their campaigns. However, they have been much better than Trump to raise money from both individuals as well as lobby groups that want to influence the policy if they are elected.
The two Democratic presidential candidates have collected 180 million each to their election campaigns. Trump has in comparison only collected a fraction of that amount from external financing.
Formally the 43 millions dollars that Trump spends is a loan, but as late as this week he made it clear that he has no plans of paying back the money he has loaned from himself for his campaign.
