Trump to Appear at Fundraiser for Allied Super PAC
President Donald Trump is plunging into the big-donor game, planning an appearance at a six-figure-a-head fundraiser benefiting his allied super PAC.
Trump is expected to address America First Action’s leadership summit, according to the super PAC’s president, Brian Walsh. The president is slated to speak on the second night of the two-day conference, to be held June 18-19 at Trump International Hotel in Washington.
The super PAC will begin sending out invitations to major GOP donors on Wednesday.
The conference is expected to draw a number of Republican members of Congress, including Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California, and Rep. Greg Walden of Oregon, chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee. The president’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., is expected to appear, as well.
There are also a number of panel discussions scheduled, some of which will be focused on policy matters, with others geared to the 2018 midterms and the 2020 presidential election.
Walsh will lead a presentation on the super PAC’s plans for the looming midterm elections, which will include a discussion of polling and competitive House and Senate races.
