BUT THEN THE CANCER OPENED HIS WALLET...:

Leaked emails show new Trump aide used to scorn him (Jennifer Jacobs,  August 26, 2015, Des Moines Register)

Leaked emails show that the Iowan who is Donald Trump's new national co-chairman was throwing bombs at him as recently as last month, expressing grave misgivings about the authenticity of Trump's religious faith and his conservatism.

"(Trump) left me with questions about his moral center and his foundational beliefs. ... His comments reveal no foundation in Christ, which is a big deal," evangelical conservative activist Sam Clovis said in an email just 35 days before he quit his job as Republican Rick Perry's Iowa chairman and signed on with Trump's campaign.

In the emails, shared by Perry backers Wednesday with The Des Moines Register, Clovis castigated Trump for his past liberal positions and admission that he has never asked for God's forgiveness for any wrongdoing.

In an interview Wednesday, Clovis verified that he'd written the sharply worded criticisms of Trump, including one email in which he praises Perry for calling Trump a "cancer on conservatism."
