Another instance of his influence was when he donated 50 million dollars to the Republican PAC, the National Republican Senatorial Committee, and the Republican National Committee. He also donated $75 million to The Donald J. Trump Foundation. Many people wonder how Kelcy Warren funds himself while also owning a company that deals with many pipelines, but he is extremely wealthy.

In 2008, Kelcy Warren appeared in a campaign commercial where he unveiled his plans for America. He said that “the American spirit was not as alive today as it should be” because “too many politicians” were aiming for more important things that didn’t necessarily benefit the people.
Kelcy Warren has been in the spotlight since 1986, when he bought a large parcel of Oklahoma land. However, he didn’t buy it to make any more money but to prove his point that being a businessman is all about having confidence in yourself and believing in yourself. He did this by investing all of his money in oil and gas exploration, and later he would create one of the largest pipeline systems in North America.
Warren started his company by buying a pipeline company when he was only 25 years old, and back then, it was called Energy Transfer Partners. When he got in charge of Energy Transfer Products Inc, he said that he wanted to make them the most significant pipeline company in North America, and that’s precisely what he did. He later renamed this company Energy Transfer Partners, now known as ETP. Visit this page for additional information.
