Wed, Oct 25, 2017: Trump raises money for RNC, re-election in Dallas

President Donald Trump visited Dallas Wednesday afternoon for fundraisers benefiting his campaign and the Republican National Committee.

Donors at the events were asked to contribute between $2,700 to $100,000 per person. A photo with Trump costs $35,000 per person.

Trump was expected to raise $4 million at fundraisers. The event for 200 guests at Belo Mansion also featured RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel and some guests paid up to $100,000 to attend.

Before heading to the fundraiser, Trump participated in a briefing with Republican Gov. Greg Abbott and Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick at Dallas Love Field, pointing to “tremendous success” in Texas’ work to recover from Hurricane Harvey.

Trump praised all of the emergency responders in the aftermath of the devastating hurricane that dumped record rainfall on areas around Houston and flooded thousands of homes as it lingered for days in late August.
“We’ve had a tremendous success in the state of Texas,” Trump said.
Abbott credited Trump for returning to Texas to assess recovery efforts.
