Donald Trump's presidential campaign did not spend much in May. But a good chunk of what it did spend went to the Trump family and entities owned by Trump himself.
The presumptive Republican nominee's campaign committee received only $5.6 million in May, including another loan from Trump, according to a Federal Election Commission filing. It reported disbursements of $6.7 million, ending the month with only $1.3 million on hand.
In a Tuesday morning statement, the Trump camp explained that low figure as the consequence of only really beginning its fundraising efforts at the end of May, and actually described its results thus far as "incredible."
Importantly, Trump does not spend as heavily as candidates typically do, aided by a heavy dose of free media coverage. A significant portion of the campaign's May disbursements, though, went to Trump properties.
About 20 percent of May spending went to Trump companies or reimbursements for his children. That includes a roughly $423,000 payment to the Trump Organization's Mar-a-Lago club.
Trump himself was listed on the campaign's payroll, and it listed more than $30,000 in payments to him. Democrat Hillary Clinton's campaign listed more than $100,000 in "payroll and benefits" expenditures to her in May.
It is unclear if those expenditures go directly to the candidates or filter down to other campaign officials.
