Trump's inauguration raised $107 million dollars. No one knows what happened to this money. The Trump inauguration only cost $25 million.

"When it comes to the missing funds, there’s no good story to be told for Trump," Robert Weissman, president of Public Citizen, told Newsweek. "Either he wasted the money for his inauguration on the frontend, there’s illegal misspending on the backend, or they’re planning on donating the leftover cash to charity, but have been too busy and unorganized to follow through." "The inauguration embodied the precise casual corruption Trump had denounced throughout the campaign and said that he alone could solve," Weissman added.

The Trump inaugural committee may have had over $80 million left over from the inauguration.

When looking at inaugurations past, it becomes somewhat clearer how much money could be left in Trump’s inaugural pot of gold—and how misused some of those donations may have been. Obama’s inauguration concert, a star-studded event with numerous security details and television-ready production, cost $2.5 million compared to Trump's last-minute spectacle that cost a reported $25 million.
