Sheldon Adelson Tells Donald Trump To Show Some ‘Humility’

(JTA) — Republican mega-donor Sheldon Adelson told Donald Trump in a private meeting that the Republican presidential candidate must demonstrate a measure of humility, The New York Times [reported](http://www.nytimes.com/2016/08/28/us/politics/sheldon-adelson-donald-trump.html?_r=0 es “”).

Adelson, a billionaire casino magnate, also told Trump in the meeting last week in Adelson’s suite at the St. Regis Hotel in New York that he was committed to his presidential campaign.

The newspaper cited five unnamed Republicans briefed on the meeting who were not authorized to publicly disclose information about the get-together.

Adelson’s wife, Miriam, also a large donor to the Republican Party, reportedly was at the meeting with Trump on Wednesday. Neither Adelson has contributed to Trump’s campaign, to groups supporting him or to the Republican National Committee since they pledged to support him during a private meeting in May at the same hotel, the Times reported.

Trump’s campaign would not comment to the Times on the meeting.

Many of the Republican Party’s most generous contributors have refused to give to Trump’s campaign, according to the newspaper.
