Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump says he'll spend $1 billion on his campaign if that's what it takes.
"It's irrelevant. I make $400 million a year, so what difference does it make? How much? A Billion? Yeah, I would do that," Trump said as he answered reporters' questions. (Video via CBS)
In that case, he’s got some ground to make up. A New York Times report showed as of Aug. 1, Trump had raised $1.9 million to his campaign, compared to the more than $120 million of current financial front-runner Jeb Bush.
