Donald Trump made a decision recently while at his West Palm Beach golf course which displayed beyond a shadow of doubt that he is not beholden to big money donors, like basically every other American politician. A good ‘Exhibit A’ would be Bill and Hillary Clinton.

The decision Trump made was to eject author Harry Hurt III, a guest of billionaire David Koch. In so doing, Trump forced Koch to leave as well.

Hurt is the author of the book ‘Lost Tycoon: The Many Lives of Donald J. Trump.’ The book included an allegation of rape from ex-wife Ivana Trump. Ivana made this accusation of Donald during the proceedings of their divorce. Ivana subsequently disavowed the rape allegation.

Harry Hurt III is the author of many books, including, “Lost Tycoon: The Many Lives of Donald J. Trump.”

David and Charles Koch have been two of the most influential big money donors behind the Republican establishment, an establishment that Trump largely upended with his stunning 2016. Certainly, the ejection of Hurt and departure of David Koch sends a message to the Beltway GOP that President Trump will not be playing by their rules, and will not be answering to them.

Businessmen first and foremost, the Koch brothers gained political prominence during the 2010 Tea Party insurgency, pushing Barack Obama to support an alliance between the left and big business, with a goal of more cheap labor and lessened prison sentences for narcotics traffickers. This unholy alliance was sold to the public under the euphemism “smaller government.”

The Koch brothers.

However, the citizens who flocked to Trump in 2015 and 2016 were not interested in the Kochs pro- big business vision of mass immigration and globalization. These multitudes saw in Trump a leader who would limit immigration and roll back globalization and trade deals that were fantastic for corporations and the 1% at the top, but were wrecking the lives and livelihoods of working Americans. These people were thirsting for a populist, even nationalist candidate, and Trump answered the call.

Realizing Donald Trump was not a man they could bend to their, as he had no need for their dollars, the Kochs even considered spending millions to fund attack ads against Trump.

Trump, no dummy, saw what the Kochs were about. Calling their preferred candidates “puppets,” Trump mocked the Kochs on social media at various points during his campaign for the presidency:

I really like the Koch Brothers (members of my P.B. Club), but I don’t want their money or anything else from them. Cannot influence Trump!

While I hear the Koch brothers are in big financial trouble (oil), word is they have chosen little Marco Rubio, the lightweight from Florida

I turned down a meeting with Charles and David Koch. Much better for them to meet with the puppets of politics, they will do much better!

The accusation of Trump “raping” Ivana Trump was a weapon opponents and enemies of Trump hoped to use to bring him down during his campaign after the Daily Beast and Fox’s Megyn Kelly ran the allegation without fact-checking for the the truth.

This plan came crashing down when Ivana repudiated the allegations and endorsed the Donald. Ivana spoke to the issue in 2015, stating: “I have recently read some comments attributed to me from nearly 30 years ago at a time of very high tension during my divorce from Donald. The story is totally without merit. Donald and I are the best of friends and together have raised three children that we love and we are very proud of. I have nothing but fondness for Donald and wish him the best of luck on his campaign.

With the forced exit of David Koch and his gossip-peddling guest, Donald Trump has sent a message to those who held out hope that they could buy President Trump like they have so many others: Trump doesn’t want your money, doesn’t need your money, and can’t be bought.
