Many Republicans are learning that Donald Trump is still not going to be pushed around by the establishment that had for the last four years turned their back to him.
It seems that GOP groups, such as the RNC, NRCC, and NRSC are using Trump’s likeness and his name in official fundraising publications, emails, and merchandises.
So, that is a big no-no for the Don, and I agree with him 100%.
“TRUMPS SENDS CEASE-AND-DESIST TO RNC, NRCC, AND NRSC,” Politico reported. “Lawyers for former President DONALD TRUMP sent out cease-and-desist letters Friday to the three largest fundraising entities for the Republican Party — the RNC, NRCC, and NRSC — for using his name and likeness on fundraising emails and merchandise, a Trump adviser tells Playbook.”
Further explanation was provided by Politico in the report.
“We reported yesterday that Trump was furious that his name has been bandied about by organizations that help Republicans who voted to impeach him — without his permission,” the report continued. “Trump, who made his fortune in licensing, has always been sensitive to how his name has been used to fundraise and support members, even while in office.”
The cease-and-desist letter was trigger by recent emails by the RNC.
“Privately GOP campaign types say it’s impossible not to use Trump’s name, as his policies are so popular with the base,” the report added. “If Trump really wants to help flip Congress, they argue he should be more generous. His team, however, sees this differently.”
Donald Trump is not done with politics and is getting himself ready to go to war with the GOP.
There have been multiple reports from those in Trump’s inner circle that he is done playing nice with the Republican elite.
“According to three people familiar with the planning, Trump will soon begin vetting candidates at Mar-a-Lago who are eager to fulfill his promise to exact vengeance upon incumbent Republicans who’ve scorned him, and to ensure every open GOP seat in the 2022 midterms has a MAGA-approved contender vying for it,” Politico reported in February.
But contrary to Politico’s report, the former president is “absolutely” looking to help the Republican Party win back the House in 2022, albeit with the candidates he wants to win.
“President Trump was committed to the Republican Party, not only that, he wants to make sure the Republican Party win back the House of Representatives and the US Senate in 2022,” Miller said.
Also, it is important to note that Trump teased his base at CPAC that he is open to a presidential run in 2024 which was received with thunderous applause.
“This alone should be reason enough for Democrats to suffer withering losses in the mid-terms and to lose the White House decisively four years from now,” he said after lambasting the Democrats’ record. “Who knows? I may even decide to beat them for a third time.”
I don’t know about you, but I am ready to see those in the swamp on both sides of the aisle be crushed for good.
