Jim Hoft picked this up at Gateway Pundit. I just tried it for myself and got the same result. (It’s about 4 PM PDT/7 PM EDT as I prepare this.)
Trump sent the tweet asking for campaign donations, and announcing that he would match them, on 28 July at 11:18 PM EDT (8:18 PM PDT. As I’ve outlined before, Twitter shows the time of a tweet in the time zone it associates with YOUR account, not the tweeter’s. That’s why the tweet looks like it was in the 10:00 PM hour to Jim, in the Central time zone, but shows the 8:00 PM hour for my account, and may show something different for you).
I will once again write a $1 MILLION check to our campaign if we hit our million-dollar end-of-month goal! https://t.co/fUTugI2R2k

I have a screen-cap of the tweet below, in case this doesn’t come up for you. But let me warn you: trying to click through to the individual tweet from Jim’s post ended up sending me to some unrelated advertising site — which tried to load something on Flash Player for awhile, and then blocked me from the tweet. I had to open the tweet in an incognito window in order to get through to it.
I took the precaution of accessing the Trump tweet stream the same way. His 28 July tweet for campaign donations should show up between the two tweets indicated on the screen cap.
But it’s not there.
If you’re wondering whether Twitter is cool with the platform being used to raise money for political campaigns, the answer is yes. In fact, Twitter encourages it.
