Former US President and Republican nominee Donald Trump appears to have previously donated to the campaign of Kamala Harris, who is now his potential rival.

According to data posted on the California Secretary of State’s website, the Trump organization contributed $5,000 in 2011 when Harris was seeking reelection as attorney general, and a further $1,000 in 2013. His daughter Ivanka donated another $2,000 to Harris in 2014.

The revelation began circulating on social media on Sunday, following US President Joe Biden’s withdrawal from the November elections and his subsequent endorsement of Kamala Harris as his successor. The vice president claimed that she would “earn and win” the Democratic nomination to run for the Oval Office.

During his 2016 campaign, Trump admitted to donating to both Democrats and Republicans, including his then-opponent Hillary Clinton, claiming that politicians can be bought and paid for.

“These politicians, they’re so bad,” he said at the time. “I’ve got to give it to them because when I want something, I get it. When I call, they kiss my a**.”

“You know, it’s interesting. I was looking at the ones I’m running against. I’ve contributed to most of them – can you believe it? I’ve contributed to most of them. And one of them said, ‘No, I don’t think you’ve contributed to me.’ They found out I did. I contribute to everybody. I’ve given to Democrats.
