Personal Interaction with Trump

Marcus mentioned his recent conversation with Trump, emphasizing that it was not centered around Trump’s legal battles or funding. He said that Trump was “very happy” about Mr. Marcus’s support, revealing the mutual respect and appreciation between the two.

Significant but Not Top Donor

Despite his substantial support, Marcus clarified his role in Trump’s campaign funding: “Of course, I’m going to support him to some extent, but I’m not one of his big givers, that’s for sure.” Campaign finance records corroborated this statement.

Marcus and his wife have been significant Republican donors, contributing nearly $25 million in the 2020 election cycle, making them notable figures in political funding.

Forbes values Marcus’s net worth at approximately $8.8 billion, highlighting his financial influence.

Others Rallying Behind Trump

Marcus is not alone in his support. Another significant political donor, Robert Bigelow, shifted his support to Trump, citing the conflict in the Middle East as a critical factor.

Bigelow’s stance reflects a broader sentiment among supporters that Trump’s leadership style is crucial during international crises.
