A liberal super PAC is hitting Donald Trump over his $25,000 donation to Attorney General Pam Bondi.
“American Bridge” released a 30-second spot Thursday calling Trump to task over a 2013 donation to Bondi’s political committee. The ad, first reported by the Tampa Bay Times, is called “The Art of the Bribe” and features clips of Trump, and the news media questioning the donation.
“When you give, they do whatever the hell you want them to do,” Trump is heard saying in the advertisement.
In 2013, Trump gave $25,000 to support Bondi’s re-election bid. The donation came as Bondi’s office was considering whether to pursue an investigation into Trump University. Bondi ultimately decided against an investigation.
Trump has paid a $2,500 penalty to the IRS and refunded the money to his foundation — which had made the original contribution.
