Major GOP Donors Are Asking Trump for Their Money Back

Two big-money donors who have given or raised tens of thousands of dollars for Donald Trump are livid at the Republican presidential nominee and are asking for their money back, according to a bundler who raised money for Trump. 

"I cannot express my disappointment enough regarding the recent events surrounding Mr. Trump," one donor wrote to a Trump fundraiser in an email with the subject line "Trump support withdrawal." 

"I regret coming to the Trump support event, and in particular allowing my son to be a part of it," the donor, who had given to and raised money for Trump, said. "I respectfully request that my money be refunded." 

Senior Trump spokesman Jason Miller said the campaign is "unaware of any donors making such a request."

The donor has buyer's remorse after the release of a vulgar videotape last Friday that reveals Trump describing unwanted sexual advances on women. 

A second donor also requested his money be returned because he is "mortified" over the leaked videotape, according to another email obtained by NBC News. 

"I can not (sic) support a sexist man. I have three young children and will not support a crude sexist man," the second donor wrote. "I expect a refund of my donation. Please process immediately and I thank you for your help."
