Donald Trump donated to former New York politician Anthony Weiner's campaigns on multiple occasions before the real estate mogul entered the 2016 presidential race.

According to NBC News, Trump gave $2,300 to Weiner's congressional campaigns in 2007 and 2010, the maximum dollar amount allowed under the law. Trump also gave Weiner $150 when he ran for the New York City Council in 1997.

Weiner is embroiled in a sexting scandal that is causing his marriage to fall apart. After reports appeared in the news Sunday about Weiner sexting with a woman, his wife Huma Abedin — Hillary Clinton's top aide — said the two are separating.

Weiner has has been caught on multiple occasions sexting with women who were not his wife.

In the latest episode, the woman with whom he was communicating happened to be a supporter of Donald Trump and the National Rifle Association. She has also bashed President Barack Obama and former President Bill Clinton on her Twitter account.

Trump said Monday Abedin "will be far better off without him."

"I only worry for the country in that Hillary Clinton was careless and negligent in allowing Weiner to have such close proximity to highly classified information," Trump said in a statement. "Who knows what he learned and who he told? It's just another example of Hillary Clinton's bad judgment. It is possible that our country and its security have been greatly compromised by this."
