Self-proclaimed rich man Donald Trump turns the GOP into his personal piggy bank
The Republican Party has been an accomplice of Donald Trump for years. But new reports suggest the party is paying more money to the former president than previously thought.
The Washington Post reported Thursday that the Republican National Committee agreed this summer to contribute up to $ 1.6 million to help Trump – a self-proclaimed wealthy man – fight investigations into behavior that largely preceded his tenure. The New York Times confirmed the report later Thursday.
The money is intended to help Trump push back a civilian investigation into Trump’s affairs by New York Attorney General Letitia James as well as a criminal investigation into his business by James and Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance.
It’s all part of the Trump experience, you see: paying for him and his delinquent family to fend off legal challenges while mimicking opulence.
“The RNC executive committee has approved payment of certain legal fees related to politically motivated lawsuits against President Trump,” GOP spokeswoman Emma Vaughn told The Post. “As the leader of our party, standing up for President Trump and his accomplishments is essential for the GOP.”
It sounds a lot like, “I wasn’t robbed, I wanted the thief to have my wallet.” Nonetheless, delve into the Post’s story and you’ll find a hint of truth from anonymous GOP officials: They are absolutely afraid of potentially being on Trump’s wrong side.
From the post office :
Republican Party officials say privately that Trump is the party’s biggest fundraiser, and they want to keep him in their good graces ahead of the 2022 midterm and the 2024 presidential election. Ronna McDaniel, speaks regularly with Trump, according to Trump advisers, and has in the past warned him against creating a third party. She managed to keep a close bond with him as other advisers ran out.
Republican Party officials appear to be completely convinced that they are Trump’s personal bank, whether out of loyalty, fear, or both.
