According to Donald Trump, his campaign "hasn't really" started yet, and it won't until the GOP Convention comes and sees him made the official GOP nominee.
What do you think? Is he just making excuses for a faltering campaign? Or does he mean it?

My guess is after the convention is over is when he plans to start running the negative ads against Hillary.

As much as I'd like to say he's just making the old "I wasn't really trying before" excuse, I'm sure he's got plans. He's got the delegates, he probably doesn't feel the need to kick his campagin into high gear until the final stretch when it's just him against the Democratic nominee, which will almost certainly be Clinton.

A Clinton vs. Trump election... wow...

I'm a little afraid at how hard his next level of stumpings are going to hit.

Donald Trump's campaign is out of money..... If they had the money and the RNC funding (which is lacking) he would be running negative ads. Hillary is running 10 million dollars in key swing states while Trump is doing nothing.

How'd that work out for Jeb?

You obviously have no knowledge about the difference between Primaries and General Election participation and hysteria.

Yea, he is in trouble. He is shuffling staff a bit, that may help, but he is behind right now.

You can't run a general (national) campaign on rally's. He just has no actual death in campaigning and seems unwilling to get proper help.

Unlike a DC politician, Trump will save his money for things that matter, like ads after the convention circuses are over.

He means it. For those who remember, he barely spent anything in the primaries either - he feeds on media coverage and capitalizes right before the big stage with well-placed ads, not to mention his near-constant rallying.
