What's this? The great negotiator is having trouble negotiating with the Republican Party where he will become the nominee?
Hey, try selling me the Brooklyn Bridge instead.
Donald Trump says he is only asking wealthy donors for their money because the Republican National Committee wants him to, reports NyPo.
Trump is holding his first fundraisers this week, including a $25,000-per-ticket dinner today in Los Angeles.
For every check he solicits for the RNC, the first $5,400 goes to Trump’s primary and general election campaign accounts. The rest is spread among the RNC and 11 state parties.
Asked by the AP if he sees a contradiction in asking for money after repeatedly saying he stood above the other candidates because he didn’t, Trump said, “No, because I’m raising money for the party. And if I didn’t do it this way, I wouldn’t be able to raise money for the party.”
There is no requirement that a presidential candidate’s fundraising agreement with the party include his or her own campaign.
