Robert Mercer & the Dark Money Behind Trump and Bannon

Robert Mercer & the Dark Money Behind Trump and Bannon
Quote:
We turn now to look at the man who is said to have out-Koched the Koch brothers in the 2016 election. His name is Robert Mercer, a secretive billionaire hedge-fund tycoon who, along with his daughter Rebekah, is credited by many with playing an instrumental role in Donald Trumpís election.

Trumpís chief strategist, Steve Bannon, said, quote, "The Mercers laid the groundwork for the Trump revolution. Irrefutably, when you look at donors during the past four years, they have had the single biggest impact of anybody, including the Kochs." Before Bannon and Kellyanne Conway joined the Trump campaign, both worked closely with the Mercers. The Mercers bankrolled Bannonís Breitbart News, as well as some of Bannonís film projects. Conway ran a super PAC created by the Mercers to initially back the candidacy of Ted Cruz.

The Mercers also invested in a data mining firm called Cambridge Analytica, which claims it has psychological profiles of over 200 million American voters. The firm was hired by the Trump campaign to help target its message to potential voters.

While the Mercers have helped reshape the American political landscape, their work has all been done from the shadows. They donít speak to the media and rarely even speak in public.

Indeed HillBill lost the electoral vote and thus the Presidency which by definition means Trump won. She plastered Trump in the popular vote however and if it were not for gerrymandering would be our President.

Basically Trump won the way most Republicans do.....he legally cheated.
Thanks from Cosmo
