    Despite Donald Trump's election victory, his campaign committee continues to seek money from supporters, calling into question the amount of debt the campaign racked up in the final days of the race, NBC News reported.

    An email to supporters with the subject line "Thank You," has a bright red "Contribute" button at the bottom of the email.

    Campaign finance law says a candidate can continue to raise money after Election Day to pay off any debts or to raise money for re-election.

    Debt is a possibility. At the end of the last fundraising report on Oct. 20, Trump had an uninspiring $16 million cash on hand and was also $2 million in debt.
