From the story:
"The nice thing is, I don't want or need their money or support," Trump said in a statement to Bloomberg on Friday. "They were very upset when the people they were supporting were soundly defeated by yours truly, but I think the American public will be happy to know that the Koch brothers will not have influence over a Trump administration or the lives of the American people."
The Kochs oversee a donor network that plans to spend about $450 million on conservative causes this year. This week, Charles Koch told USA Today that Trump campaign staff plan to meet with Koch officials in the coming days to find potential areas of common ground. But in the interview, Charles Koch said that the candidate would have to shift his stance on a number of policies, such as free trade, to win his support. And he said Trump's recent comments about a judge's Mexican heritage were “unacceptable.”Separating himself from the Koch Brothers may help Trump with the Sanders supporters who were conditioned by the media to oppose the Kochs. The split helps him maintain credibility with True Conservatives, as the Koch Brothers are New World Order believers who support open borders.
From the article:
Neither the Kochs nor their political network endorsed or funded anyone in the Republican presidential primary, but network officials did offer members a list of six candidates it deemed worthy of support. Trump was not among them.
"They were backing other candidates, total puppets for them," Trump said in his statement. "So I fully understand their unhappiness and why they wouldn't want to be involved with me."Trump can win without them. This is an ideas election. He has them. The Koch Brothers, Hillary, and the National Review do not. Well, ideas that help America, that is.
