Trump Releases Statement After Dispute With RNC: “No More Money for RINOs”
Former President Donald Trump released a statement calling on his supporters to stop donations to the Republican National Committee, urging them to instead to direct their donations to his own Political Action Committee.
From the Daily Caller:
“No more money for RINOS. 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!” Trump said in the statement.

The news comes after reports of a dispute between Trump and the RNC began to circulate, with Trump taking issue with the party using his name in advertising:
Trump’s legal counsel sent a cease-and-desist letter Saturday to The Republican National Committee (RNC), the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) and the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) telling them to stop using his name for fundraising.
The RNC’s chief counsel, Justin Riemer, wrote a letter Monday to Trump lawyer Alex Cannon responding to the cease-and-desist letter. The GOP “has every right to refer to public figures as it engages in core, First Amendment-protected political speech, and it will continue to do so in pursuit of these common goals,” Riemer wrote, according to Politico.
Trump has spent the last few weeks plotting his political course forward, using his speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference to assert his position as the leader of the Republican Party.
While Trump has teased that he may still make another run for the White House in 2024, his near-term plans are seemingly more focused on reshaping the party with candidates that agree with his vision for the future.
Most recently, Trump endorsed GOP Sens. Tim Scott, John Kennedy, and John Boozman for reelection.
