The Trump Victory fund reportedly held its last fundraising event on October 19th and has no plans to hold more fundraisers according to the Washington Post.
Trump’s national finance chairman told the Post that they’ve “wound down” their operations.
The national party collected $40 million through Trump Victory as of Sept. 30. The RNC has relied on the funds to help pay for hundreds of field staffers deployed across the country as part of its national ground operation, which is working to turn out voters to support the entire Republican ticket.
[national finance chairman Steven Mnuchin] said the Trump campaign decided to keep the candidate’s final weeks focused on taking his message to the voters in person rather than on raising money.
The number of people who won’t be paid after the election is over could be quite high. The Trump campaign has no ground operation of its own and they’ve relied on the RNC for that, but they won’t be raising more money for the RNC.
Anyone dumb enough to work for Trump at this point should ask for payment up front.
A spokesperson for RNC Chairman Reince Priebus says the chairman intends to continue raising money for Trump even if Trump isn’t doing so in return, because Reince is a chump.
