And so it begins…

Former President Trump is taking the GOP establishment head-on after they turned their backs on him during the 2020 presidential election.

And he’s hitting them where it hurts – their pocketbooks.

The 45th President released a fiery statement Tuesday morning encouraging his supporters to stop donating to the RINOs, who essentially abandoned Trump and the country in their time of need, and instead donate to his Save America Political Action Committee.

“No more money for RINOS,” Trump said in an official statement. “They do nothing but hurt the Republican Party and our great voting base—they will never lead us to Greatness. Send your donation to Save America PAC at DonaldJTrump.com.”

“We will bring it all back stronger than ever before!” the president confidently vowed.

Trump’s statement appears to be a continuation of his quest to force the three largest fundraising entities for the GOP—the RNC, NRCC, and NRSC—to stop using his name for fundraising efforts.

Last week, his lawyers sent cease-and-desist letters to the Republican organizations for using his name without explicit permission, Politico reported.

The former president is allegedly angry that these entities are using his name to fundraise while also helping Republicans who voted to impeach him.

A Trump adviser told the outlet that although the 45th President intends to help the Republican Party win in future elections, he does not give permission to use his name “without explicit approval.”

“President Trump remains committed to the Republican Party and electing America First conservatives, but that doesn’t give anyone – friend or foe – permission to use his likeness without explicit approval,” the adviser allegedly said to Politico.

The former president intends to bring the Republican Party back, but it becomes increasingly clear that it will be on his terms, not the RINOs’.

Like Trump said during his February speech at CPAC, he will be working to elect candidates who align with his America First policies. Trumpism will be the way forward if there is going to be any future for the republican Party. Redirecting funds to him instead of the GOP establishment is the first step.
