Why Trump is reaching out to small donors

Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee for President, has $1.3 million left in his campaign bank account. A small number when compared to that of his rival's, Hillary Clinton, who boasts $42 million on hers.

So far the New York businessman had mostly been financing his campaign himself, contributing almost $46 million out of his own wallet. But now he is asking his followers for contributions and the BBC's Rajini Vaidyanathan finds out why.
