President Donald Trump addressed the American people on National television to advocate the necessity of a southern border wall. Or did he?
In the afternoon of the day of the address, Trump sent a specific email to his base of followers. The email specifically was asking for donations to his “Official Secure the Border Fund” via the Trump Make America Great Again Committee. However that committee is also the same one that operates for the RNC as well as the Trump campaign.
“We need to raise $500,000 in ONE DAY,” the email stated . “I want to know who stood with me when it mattered most so I’ve asked my team to send me a list of EVERY AMERICAN PATRIOT who donates to the Official Secure the Border Fund,” read the mail signed by Trump. “Please make a special contribution of $5 by 9 PM EST.”
Note that 9pm EST is the exact same time that the president gave his address.
It appears that the sly old fox could be raising funds for the border wall, but should that fall short he’ll still have the cash on hand to fuel his re-election campaign.
It appears President Trump had more than one bird in range of his recent address.
