President Donald Trump plans to bring in $ 15 million dollars in campaign money this Saturday from a series of fundraisers in the upscale Southampton area of Long Island, including a stop at Donald Trump Jr.’s home. and Kimberly Guilfoyle.
The fundraiser with his son and his son’s girlfriend is just one event in a series of fundraisers that Team Trump started this month after outpacing Democratic rival Joe Biden in second-quarter fundraising.

But her advocates point to her successful track record of fundraising and her ability to reach new supporters for the Republican Party. Plus, she’s close to the Trump family, given her relationship with the president’s eldest son.
The president will also attend an event Saturday at the home of billionaire former hedge fund manager John Paulson, one of Trump’s allies on Wall Street, in Southampton.
Tickets to the dinner event are priced up to $ 500,000 per pair, according to an invitation obtained by CNBC.
The series of events is expected to raise $ 15 million for the Trump Victory Fund, a joint fundraising device for the re-election campaign of the president, the Republican Party, and some state parties.
The Southampton area also celebrated Trump on Friday, when supporters staged a boat parade in honor of the area’s president.
It is unclear how the restrictions surrounding the coronavirus pandemic affected personal fundraising.
New York only allows meetings of up to 50 people, and Governor Andrew Cuomo has encouraged people to wear masks, especially if they are unable to distance themselves socially.
Guilfoyle reportedly caused panic in the Southampton neighborhood, home to many wealthy and influential people, following her COVID diagnosis. Shortly before, she and Don Jr. spotted at an outdoor rooftop party where few people wore masks.
She tested positive for the coronavirus ahead of President Trump’s July 3 celebration at Mount Rushmore. She and Don Jr. returned to New York instead of staying with the celebration.
