Trump warned that his supporters should not trust professional Republican fundraisers, advising that instead, that they should donate their money to him.
“No more money for RINOS,” Trump wrote.
“They do nothing but hurt the Republican Party and our great voting base—they will never lead us to Greatness.”
“Send your donation to Save America PAC at DonaldJTrump.com,” he wrote. “We will bring it all back stronger than ever before!”
Trump gave a statement in which he demanded that RNC, NRCC, and NRSC stop using his name to raise money and sell merchandise.
“President Trump remains committed to the Republican Party and electing America First conservatives, but that doesn’t give anyone – friend or foe – permission to use his likeness without explicit approval,” a Trump adviser told Politico on Friday.
RNC argued that they had a constitutional right to use Trump’s likeness, as he was a former public figure.
The RNC, argued their chief counsel Justin Riemer in a letter, “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.”
“The only division is between a handful of Washington, DC establishment political hacks, and everybody else all over the country,” he said.
