Ya can’t make this shit up….
Donald Trump IS trying to get people to give money to HIM instead of the different Republican organizations…
We now have some House Republicans carrying the water for him essential make money off ‘his’ parties suckers…Money in Trump place allow him to divert those funds for his OWN personal use…Prosocutors in NYC and NY State ARE after his money…He also owes the IRS and others upwards of a half Billion dollars…And he’s gonna be paying lawyer since he doesn’t have the US Justice Dept. representing him anymore…)
Other Republicans are NOT happy with Trump’s brazen moves at ALL…

Top Republicans in the House are seeking to brush aside concerns that former President Trump‘s recent fundraising-related demands could hinder their chances of taking back the House.
Trump sent cease-and-desist letters on Friday to the Republican National Committee (RNC), the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) and the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) calling on party leaders to stop using his image and likeness for fundraising purposes. His request was rebuffed by the RNC on Monday in a letter stating that it “has every right to refer to public figures as it engages in core, First Amendment-protected political speech, and it will continue to do so in pursuit of these common goals.”
Despite Trump’s repeated calls for donors to give money to the Save America PAC instead of GOP lawmakers he’s dubbed “RINOS” — namely those who have criticized him or voted to impeach him for inciting the deadly riot at the Capitol on Jan. 6 — senior Republicans say they don’t see his push as detrimental to their 2022 campaign efforts….
The move has been viewed as a slap in the face from some within the GOP, who argue he’s harming the party as a whole by going to war with his critics.
“How the f–k can you say you want to be a team player and we’re on the same team and then you do that — you know what I mean?” one senior member told The Hill.
“They want to raise as much money for themselves [as possible] – they don’t want to have to share it. It’s not team play, that’s for damn sure.”
But others argue it’s unlikely he can legally prevent Republicans from invoking him while trying to raise money.
“I don’t know the legality of that but it seems silly — I know the RNC and the NRCC I’m sure know there are legal boundaries on it so I don’t think he probably has a leg to stand on,” another Republican lawmaker said. “I don’t know if he’s getting bad advice – it doesn’t make sense.” …
