President Donald Trump has about had it with the traitors in the Republican Party using his name and face to raise political funds, and he has issued a letter to warn them to stop it.
News broke this week that the president’s lawyers sent a cease and desist letter to the party.
The RNC did not agree to cease their use of Trump.
On Monday, RNC chief counsel Justin Riemer replied to Trump attorney Alex Cannon and said that the committee had “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.”
But Trump’s letter demanded the GOP’s various fundraising arms should “immediately cease and desist the unauthorized use of President Donald J. Trump’s name, image, and/or likeness in all fundraising, persuasion, and/or issue speech.”
Despite turning Trump’s request to stop using his face and name to fundraise, Reimer thanked the president of his support of the GOP and not trying to drive a third party.
“The RNC is grateful for the past and continued support President Trump has given to the committee and it looks forward to working with him to elect Republicans across the country,” Riemer wrote.
One thing is sure, Trump still brings in the most money in fundraising. And this whole episode is proof.
