Trump Seeks Major Campaign Donation Boost

Former President Donald Trump will likely bring in a significant number of donations in an upcoming fundraiser, highlighting his recent strength on the campaign trail. The upcoming event also comes as the former president builds a lead in both national and statewide polling over President Joe Biden.

The former president’s campaign has high hopes for the Palm Beach fundraiser set for later today. The campaign believes that it will bring in more than $40 million. New Republican National Committee (RNC) chairman Michael Whatley said that the fundraiser will be a “huge event.”

The campaign effort will be attended by billionaire John Paulson and will include a number of wealthy conservative donors.

The former president’s campaign said that the “Inaugural Leadership Dinner” held at Paulson’s Palm Beach, Florida home will bring in a large boost for Trump.

Donations to Trump’s campaign are expected to be between $250,000 and $800,000 per person. Some are able to sit directly at the same table as Trump.

Trump’s efforts came after Biden held a successful fundraiser in New York City late last month. Biden and Trump were both in New York State for very different reasons.

The president attended a gala with former Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, offering a chance to take a picture with the three of them for a $100,000 donation. Furthermore, the event at Radio City Music Hall in New York City was attended by a number of celebrities.

On the other hand, Trump spent the day at the wake of slain NYPD officer Jonathan Diller, who was shot and killed during a traffic stop. The former president spent the day with the family of the fallen officer and with his comrades.

Trump spoke after the memorial service in the rain, stating that he believed the country had to return to law and order.

“This particular great officer, top of his class — he captured a moment. The perfect family has been so tragically altered, forever altered,” said the former president.
