Paul Singer isn’t a well known figure in Washington unless you’re looking for a donation. A hedge fund manager by trade, Singer has contributed more money to establishment candidates than just about any other person in history.
A backer of everyone from Bush to Romney, Singer is the person that any person running for federal office wants to get in bed with.
He billionaire even donates to other billionaires. Singer donated a million dollars to back the efforts of the Koch brothers.
The one candidate who never asked for a handout from Singer was none other than Donald Trump.
Rather than appreciate the independently-funded campaign by the real estate mogul, Singer turned his sights on Trump and funded the anti-Trump super PAC, Our Principles PAC.
The PAC immediately moved forward to brand Trump as a racist.
