Billionaire Trump Donor Dies In Helicopter Crash

The New York Times reports:

Chris Cline, a billionaire entrepreneur, philanthropist and political donor once called the “King of Coal,” died Thursday in what local authorities said was a helicopter crash in the Bahamas that killed seven people.

Mr. Cline was a major supporter of President Trump and many other Republicans. He donated $1 million to the president’s 2017 inauguration celebration, according to the Open Secrets site run by the Center for Responsive Politics, a nonpartisan group that tracks campaign donations.

Organizers of the event raised $107 million, but its fund-raising and spending have drawn scrutiny from state and federal officials.
