Puppets or con-artists

Donald Trump has a major complaint about politicians - they ask for campaign donations, and thus must follow the wishes of donors.
Like he was a donor for many years.
Powerline questions the effectiveness of the strategy.
Trump has been unable to back up his slander of his opponents in the presidential field with specifics. About the best he’s done is to say that Scott Walker gave him a plaque in appreciation for his support for his gubernatorial campaign. In Trumpian terms, I think this makes Trump a sucker.
If politicians aren't puppets of the rich, are they con-artists?
Making nice to multiple people to get money for campaigns, then ignoring the donors when in office.
Will donors learn they are being taken?
