Donald Trump's most recent verbal slips and public battles are scaring away large potential donors as they fear what the undisciplined and politically unrefined Republican nominee might say or do next in a faltering campaign, The Hill reported Wednesday.

"I just had a major donor tell me … 'If he wants to do this stuff, let him spend his own dough,'" a Trump fundraiser told The Hill, speaking on the condition of anonymity. "He said, 'I'm on hold for right now. As much as I want to win ... I don't mind losing, but I'm not going to just give money to a guy who's beating himself and making stupid mistakes.'"


"There's a lot of people who are very concerned and feel he has no discipline and that he's not controllable."


As much as Trump's campaign chair Paul Manafort is aware of the challenging situations his candidate creates, donors don't have confidence in Manafort impacting the nominee's approach, sources told The Hill.


"I would break his f---ing thumbs if I could … because he can't stop f---ing tweeting," the anonymous fundraiser told The Hill.


Donors are sending messages and emails urging "Trump to stay on message and keep attacking Hillary and stop the other antics," another senior member of Trump’s fundraising team told The Hill.


"People don't understand what he's doing," the source add. "He's not attacking Hillary, he's attacking our own. You eat your young, right?


"Do I feel uncomfortable? I've felt uncomfortable all along. The question is when do you lose your enthusiasm and stop working as hard."


Despite the report, Trump campaign finance chairman Steven Mnuchin announced Wednesday the campaign raised $80 million in July — up from $51 million in June.
