Casino billionaire to support Trump campaign
An American casino billionaire is expected to support US President Donald Trump's campaign in an effort to give the Republicans an edge in the looming Nov. 3 presidential election.
Sheldon Adelson, who owns multiple hotel casinos in Las Vegas, China and Singapore, is expected to donate between $20 million to $50 million to help Trump beat Democratic challenger Joe Biden, according to a report by CNBC news outlet.
Adelson, 87, is regarded as a Republican megadonor, after he donated $65 million to the Republican Party during the 2016 election, $25 million of which went to Trump's campaign.
He also donated $5 million to Trump's presidential inauguration -- the single largest donation ever made to an incoming president's inauguration.
