Trump’s new grift: Charging GOP candidates to use his name

Poor Donald Trump. It seems he isn’t selling enough $399 high-tops or $60 Bibles, and his Truth Social stock is in the toilet, so it’s time for a new, new, new, new grift: charging his fellow Republicans for uttering his name.

The Trump campaign announced in a letter Politico obtained that Republican candidates and committees are now expected to pay “a minimum of 5% of all fundraising solicitations to Trump National Committee JFC” for using his “name, image, and likeness in fundraising solicitations.” 

Yes, a minimum. But Republicans who give more than the mandatory minimum will receive something even more valuable than those much-needed fundraising dollars. They’ll earn the praise and appreciation of truly important people. Maybe even Mr. Trump himself!
