Ted Cruz released a new video highlighting Donald Trump’s history of donating to the Democratic party, including to individuals such as Hillary Clinton and Chuck Schumer.
It is also worth noting that the self-funded candidate at one time “quietly wooed Sheldon Adelson, Paul Singer and the Koch brothers” only to be turned away, as reported at Politico. A scorned Donald Trump lashed out at the millionaires and loudly declared himself to be self-funded, earning him the admiration of those who claim that Trump cannot be purchased by special interests.
I wish good luck to all of the Republican candidates that traveled to California to beg for money etc. from the Koch Brothers. Puppets?

As far as Trump’s relationship with various democrats, Politico observed that Trump was”especially cozy” with Hillary Clinton:
Clinton, the Democratic front-runner and former New York senator who had some say over policy that could have impacted Trump’s vast business dealings, received donations from both him and son Donald Trump Jr. on separate occasions in 2002, 2005, 2006 and 2007, according to state and federal disclosure records.Trump has also been generous with the Clinton Foundation, donating at least $100,000, according to the non-profit.
