TD Ameritrade founder Joe Ricketts has promised to donate to at least one million to Donald Trump according to the Wall Street Journal.

"The Ricketts decided they could not sit back and watch Hillary Clinton become the next president of the United States," Brian Baker, political advisor for Joe Ricketts, told The Wall Street Journal. "Even though the Ricketts supported other candidates during the primary, they believe it is time to unite behind the nominees … This is all about helping Republicans win in the fall."

The reason this is newsworthy, in January, the Ricketts spent nearly $6 million in an anti-Trump campaign.

Mr. Trump responded with this tweet back in February.
