His campaign is broke, the RNC is broke, the donors don't want to know because they all wanted other people.
The Trump university scandal is going to bleed all over his campaign.
The VA donation no-show is gonna dog him any time he tries to invoke the military.
The more he holds out on the tax disclosures, the more he invites people to dig into his financial affairs and dig out skeletons even he needs to hide. Such as he's not a billionaire or that he's barely paid any taxes ever.
Frankly, right now, he could be facing a colossal blowout. And he might decide that when it's stopped being fun (soon) and that there's no hint of a profit (sometime in late July, I reckon) he might just walk away.
The Democrats better hop he stays, he's the best thing they've had happen since Obama.
keep to the Fen Causeway
I don't see how he or the RNC or the NRSC or the NRCC are going to be able to appeal to the usual Much Bucks to fund their national, state, and local campaigns.
Not only is his campaign broke, Trump himself is simply not ready for Prime Time:
Manafort [Trump's senior advisor] has previously promised that Trump will stop making such a jackass out of himself and start acting more presidential, but at the same time, it is his carnival barker antics combined with his bigoted rhetoric that is kept the eye of the media on him. If he plans to depend on free media coverage for the next two months the only way he can feasibly do that is by continuing to make an embarrassing spectacle of himself.
Some lobbyists and wannabee office holders and companies looking for favours might want to be on his donor list, but why anyone else?

the presumptive GOP nominee also has a tremendous load of debt that includes five loans each over $50 million. (The disclosure form, which presidential candidates must submit, does not compel candidates to reveal the specific amount of any loans that exceed $50 million, and Trump has chosen not to provide details.) Two of those megaloans are held by Deutsche Bank, which is based in Germany but has US subsidiaries. And this prompts a question that no other major American presidential candidate has had to face: What are the implications of the chief executive of the US government being in hock for $100 million (or more) to a foreign entity that has tried to evade laws aimed at curtailing risky financial shenanigans, that was recently caught manipulating markets around the world, and that attempts to influence the US government?
