Trump to Stop Fundraising for Republican Party

Donald Trump and his campaign have ended fundraising events to support the Republican Party and their election efforts for next month. Trump Victory, the joint fundraising committee for the GOP and the Trump campaign, held its last fundraiser on Oct. 19. No more such events are scheduled.

“We’ve kind of wound down,” Trump national finance chairman Steven Mnuchin told the Post. “But the online fundraising continues to be strong.” Mnuchin revealed the Republican nominee plans to focus on making his final pitch to the voters at campaign events, rather than parade around to raise money in the final two weeks of the race.

“We have minimized his fundraising schedule over the last month to emphasize his focus on political [events],” Mnuchin said of the candidate. “Unlike Hillary, who has been fundraising and not out and about, he has constantly been out and about.”

On the other side of the aisle, Democrat Hillary Clinton’s campaign has scheduled 41 fundraising events from now until Nov. 4. Clinton’s last personal fundraising appearance was Tuesday in Miami.
