Billionaire casino magnate Sheldon Adelson had pledged upwards of $100 million to support the Donald Trump campaign back in May but apparently decided to wait until the end to start following through.
Better late than never! At arguably the perfect time, the billionaire is now committing $25 million to an anti-Hillary Clinton super PAC, according to a Monday Fox News report.

What’s more, according to Republican sources, another $25 million on top of this donation may be on the way in the next few days for races from the White House down to the Senate and House of Representatives.
The money will be given to a super PAC called Future 45, founded by the Ricketts family, owners of TD Ameritrade and the Chicago Cubs. The Ricketts had originally endorsed Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker in the primaries, but are now backing the Republican nominee.
One source told Fox News that Adelson was especially motivated to help Trump in the wake of renewed interest by the FBI into Hillary Clinton’s private email server.
