Trump 2020 Campaign Warns Against Groups Using ‘Trump’ Name to Raise Money, Endorse Candidates

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Regardless of what the mainstream media would have you believe, President Donald Trump is pretty popular, especially among grassroots Republicans. So popular, in fact, that a whole host of groups have assumed have attached the Trump name to Political Action Committees and fundraising vehicles to take advantage. A handful of them have run afoul ethically and legally, raising millions of dollars and only putting a small fraction of those funds to work as advertised.

Now, as we approach 2020 elections launch — and special elections here in NC roll on — the Trump campaign is sounding the alarm about groups that falsely present themselves as connected to the president.

So, beware political groups touting the Trump name if they aren’t included in the four named by the campaign itself above. Already, in North Carolina’s Third Congressional District Special Republican Primary Runoff election, a group associating themselves with Trump has endorsed a candidate.

While ‘Women for Trump’ doesn’t purport to have a direct association with the president, as candidates on either side of that runoff election, and primary candidates in the North Carolina’s other special election (NC-09) earn endorsements, voters should be careful about how strongly they associate a PAC name with the real deal.
