Trump’s future: tons of cash and lots of options for spending it

“Lara Trump and John Pence resigned from the AMMC board in October 2019 to focus exclusively on their campaign activities, however, there was never any ethical or legal reason why they could not serve on the board. First of all, “said Tim Murtaugh, a spokesman for Mr. Trump. “John and Lara were not compensated by AMMC for their services as board members.”

For Mr. Trump, the quarter of a billion dollars he and his party have raised over six weeks is enough to pay off all the remaining campaign bills and fund its fruitless legal challenges and leave dozens more. millions of dollars.

However, Mr. Trump’s plans remain extremely fluid. His refusal to accept Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s victory has hampered domestic political planning, say aides, with some advisers in his small circle of confidants even hesitating to address him about setting a course of action for 2021 and not no more.

Those who spoke to Mr. Trump say that he seems diminished and that he is in charge of his job; this detachment is reflected in a Twitter feed that remains stubbornly more focused on unfounded allegations of fraud than on the number of deaths due to the furious pandemic.

Mr. Trump talked about running again in 2024 – but maybe not. He created this new CAP, but another political entity could still be working, said the people involved in the talks. The discussion about counter-scheduling Mr Biden’s inauguration with a bright event or an announcement of his own is pending.

According to a senior Republican official, Mr. Trump had planned to go to Georgia on Saturday to support the two Republicans in the Senate elimination races there. But he is still angry with the Republican governor of the state and the secretary of state for accepting the election result and simply does not want to make the trip. There is some discussion about him after the Christmas holidays, but it is not clear that he will have a greater mood until then.

But even though he was indifferent to the races in Georgia, Trump’s political apparatus took advantage of the basic energy and enthusiasm of the two halves to raise its own funds. Email and text requests have prompted Trump supporters to provide a “Georgia Election Fund,” even though there are no funds to be directed to any Republican senator at the polls, irritating some strategists. you have the GOP in the Senate.
