MILWAUKEE, Wisc. - Donald Trump has a spending problem.

It's not necessarily that he's spending too much money, but that he's not spending any at all on TV advertising.

Trump has spent zilch on TV ads since entering the general election, according to NBC/Advertising Analytics.

It's shocking, especially in comparison to Mitt Romney, whose PAC's spent around $38 million on ads in June 2012.

The Green Party candidate Jill Stein has already outspent him by $189,000 and even Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson has outdone Trump by $15,000.  But all that's Trump-change compared to what Hillary Clinton has spent!

Clinton has reportedly spent $61 million on TV ads including $13 million alone just for ads airing during the Olympics.

Meanwhile, Trump has run no ads during the Olympics.

Considering Trump has raised millions in the last two months, some are wondering what the Trumpster is spending all his money on.

Some believe Trump may be over-spending on consultants and other political advisers.

One thing is certain, if Trump doesn't discover the boob-tube soon, he may be watching Hilary reigning as President come January.
