The fight between Trump and the Republican National Committee (RNC) seems to be finally boiling over.
How it started:
Over the weekend, the Trump legal team sent the RNC a cease-and-desist letter demanding they stop using Trump’s name and likeness in their fundraising efforts.
This action seemed to be foreshadowed just days prior when Trump delivered a speech before the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). During the speech, he said that the “only… way” to financially support Trump-aligned Republicans is through Save America, his new political action committee (PAC).
RNC chief counsel Justin Riemer replied Monday saying the GOP “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 RNC has continued to use Trump’s name against his wishes. In fact, since receiving Trump’s cease-and-desist, the RNC has sent multiple fundraising emails asking donors to help them “defend President Trump’s Legacy.”
Naturally, Trump was not pleased.
So he pulled out the big guns and fired a shot that could prove devastating to the RNC and GOP.
“No more money for RINOS,” the former president said in a statement, referring to “Republicans in name only.”
“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 instructed.
“We will bring it all back stronger than ever before!” Trump concluded.ResistTheMainstream.org
This formal statement echoed what Trump said during his CPAC speech: “There’s only one way to contribute to our efforts to elect ‘America First’ Republican conservatives and, in turn, to make America great again. And that’s through Save America PAC and donaldjtrump.com.”
I don’t know about you, but I’m sick of two-faced Republicans like Mitch McConnell, Mitt Romney, and Liz Cheney. These RINOs are part of The Swamp and need to go.
One way to do that is to starve the GOP and RNC of funds and redirect that money to the Save America PAC. It makes sense. Trump has certainly been far better at effecting positive change than any career Republican has.
What do you think? Will you donate to Trump’s new Save America PAC? And will this create more positive change than the traditional GOP fundraising machine? Leave a comment below with your thoughts.
