Trust Fund Heir Donald Trump Gets $50 Million from Big Oil Trust Fund Heir Timothy Mellon

WASHINGTON, D.C. – On Thursday, Timothy Mellon, grandson to Gulf Oil founder Andrew Mellon and heir to his fortune, gave $50 million to Donald Trump, who inherited $413 million from his father. 

Alex Glass, Managing Director of Communications at Climate Power, released the following statement. “Trust fund baby Donald Trump and his new best friend Tim Mellon have something in common besides getting rich without doing any work: Trump, like Mellon, is completely dependent on fossil fuel billionaires for his continuing “success.” That’s why Donald Trump has been promising Big Oil CEOs to extend tax cuts for the ultrawealthy while asking them for $1 billion on campaign contributions – tax cuts that would let Andrew Mellon hold onto his unearned oil fortune, which Trump surely relates to.”
