Donald Trump’s lawyer’s sent out the letters….
Use our client’;s name?
Trump ain’t about the ‘party’…
He’s about the MONEY.…
Been saying THAT….
The Republican National Party was included in that….
They moved one of their fundrasing events to ‘his’ Mar-a -Largo ‘ place….
They will ‘pay’ him to use his name and ‘brand’….
The weekend retreat in early April for the party’s most influential donors will be at a luxury hotel in Palm Beach, Fla., as in past years. But the RNC has decided to move the Saturday evening portion of the schedule to the former president’s private club to accommodate Trump and guests who would like to visit the site, according to officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe the plans.
The national party will sign a contract with Mar-a-Lago to host the event and will be paying Trump’s club for the use of the facilities and the meal, according to a Republican involved in the planning, who declined to share the size of the fee.
The person said it would be easier to accommodate such a large event that includes Secret Service logistics at the former president’s club, and that many GOP donors liked visiting Mar-a-Lago, where Trump has been living since he left the White House.
Spending money at the club is also likely to curry favor with Trump, who often attended GOP events during his presidency when they were held at his hotels. During the Trump administration, the RNC donor retreat was regularly held at a Palm Beach hotel, with a portion at Mar-a-Lago….
Trump gets paid by Party, Secret Service and everybody else….
My Name Is Jack says
So it’s Trumps Party?
Now you’re saying what all of us have been saying?
Yet you claim to have an alternate view?
My Name Is Jack says
“The move which highlights the former Presidents continued grip over the GOP…”
Do you understand that this is all several of us have been saying ,yet you daily try to contradict ,with increasingly irrelevant posts that have nothing to do with this central fact?
Are you really that dense that you don’t understand that the very article you have posted totally supports our position?
Are you even rational?
If it WAS HIS party Jack?
He wouldn’t have to ‘force’ people kiss his ass…
They’d do it gladly….
Trump = Money and Ego…
Screw the politics
It’s working only with the ‘zombies’
Should the media STOP doing these stories?
Trump, Republican National Committee clash over use of his name in fundraising
The Republican National Committee is defending its right to use former President Trump’s name in fundraising appeals despite his demands that they stop the practice.
In a letter Monday to Trump attorney Alex Cannon, RNC chief counsel J. Justin Riemer said the committee “has every right to refer to public figures as it engages in core, First Amendment-protected political speech” and said “it will continue to do so in pursuit of these common goals.”
But he maintained that Trump had also “reaffirmed” to the chairwoman of the RNC, Ronna McDaniel, over the weekend “that he approves of the RNC’s current use of his name in fundraising and other materials, including for our upcoming donor retreat event at Palm Beach at which we look forward to him participating.”
Trump responded to the letter with a statement that put that agreement in doubt….
Scott P says
Local news is abuzz that Roy Blunt isn’t seeking reelection because he just doesn’t want to deal with the Trump Republican Party any more.
And Blunt was hardly a Never Trumper!
