Trump to headline $580,600-per-couple fundraiser,

President Donald Trump will be the guest of honor at a Saturday fundraiser at the palatial Palm Beach estate of billionaire Nelson Peltz. Trumpís fellow guests: donors who gave $580,600 per couple to support the presidentís reelection, making it the most expensive such fundraising event since Trump took office.

The dinner, taking place a few miles from Trumpís Mar-a-Lago Club, shows how enthusiastically the president has embraced big-dollar fundraising in his bid for a second term ó a dramatic about-face from 2016, when he criticized the influence of wealthy donors on the politicians who court them.

It also shows the special access enjoyed by many of Trumpís wealthiest donors, including business executives and lobbyists, who get the chance to air their grievances with the presidentís tariffs or promote their pet projects, often while dining on Trumpís favorite foods.

ďPresident Trump is the most accessible president in history, both with the press and with supporters,Ē said Mike Reed, a spokesman for the RNC. ďThese roundtables, which previous presidents attended as well, are an opportunity for our supporters to get an update on the campaign and his record as president, all things the president discusses publicly all the time.Ē

4. Horrifying. I thought Trump was a whore, but turns out he's just one bird in that flock.
