The casino magnate Sheldon G. Adelson told Donald J. Trump in a private meeting last week that he was willing to contribute to help elect him, with a sum that could exceed $100 million, according to two Republicans with direct knowledge of Mr. Adelson’s commitment, The New York Times reports.

 

The casino magnate and billionaire Adelson who is based in Las Vegas, has decided that he will direct most of his contributions to groups dedicated to Trump’s campaign.

Donald Trump has relied on a mix of his own wealth and small-dollar contributions to finance his election campaign. Trump has said that he may need $1 billion for the campaign, but has only recently begun scheduling fund-raisers and hiring finance staff members.
