— -- Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's comments about the audience at the Republican debate prompted a surprising response: a chorus of boos.

"That's all of his donors and special interests out there," Trump said when the crowd responded to a jab from Jeb Bush on eminent domain.

"Donors, special interests -- the people that are putting up the money," Trump said. "The reason they're not loving me is I don't want their money."

Recent federal filings show that Trump has been funding a substantial portion of his campaign with his own dollars. Earlier this fall, he was using mostly donations from people supporting his campaign.

The debate audience consists mostly of New Hampshire residents, including a mix of local college students, guests of the candidates and the media, as well as top national and state Republicans.
