Trump visits California to raise $15 million from state he loves to attack

1953

Trump has attacked Californians for their progressive politics, their blatant rejection of his agenda, and even the way they fight fires — but he still wants their money.

Trump loves bashing California, but now he's hoping to raise millions of dollars there for his reelection campaign.

Trump is set to raise more than $15 million this week during a two-day California fundraising swing.

A Republican official familiar with the plans says Trump will raise $3 million Tuesday at a lunch in the Bay Area and $5 million at a dinner that evening in Beverly Hills at the home of real estate developer Geoffrey Palmer.

On Wednesday, Trump is set to take in $3 million at a Los Angeles breakfast and a further $4 million during a San Diego lunch.

The fundraisers will benefit Trump Victory, the joint entity that funds the president's reelection campaign and the Republican National Committee.
