TRump lands in California to raise money at tech entrepreneur Palmer Luckey’s home after being punished with $ 135 million by Joe Biden and the Dems last month
- President Donald Trump took a trip to California on Sunday to raise money for his reelection campaign
President Donald Trump took a trip to California on Sunday to raise money for his campaign, which has lost his cash advantage to Democrat Joe Biden.
Trump flew to Santa Ana, California on Sunday for a high-dollar rally with supporters at the home of billionaire Palmer Luckey, the 28-year-old founder of the Oculus virtual reality system in Newport Beach.
Ticket prices for the meeting started from $ 2,800 for a visitor ticket up to $ 150,000 for couples chairing the event together, according to an invitation from Recode.

Special guests included Ric Grenell, former Acting Director of National Intelligence, and Republican National Committee Chairman Ronna Romney McDaniel, who, like Trump, recently recovered from the coronavirus.
Donald Trump Jr.’s girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle was also listed as a host on the invitation, although she did not arrive with the president.
Guilfoyle is the ex-wife of the Democratic government of California, Gavin Newsom.
Trump flew to John Wayne Airport in Santa Ana, where he was greeted by several hundred supporters, whom he greeted briefly.
He was traveling with his son-in-law Jared Kushner, a top White House employee, along with press secretary Kayleigh McEnany and senior adviser Hope Hicks, who also recently recovered from COVID-19.
Thousands of others lined the motorcade to Luckey’s house – including some boaters who had their ships decked out in pro-Trump flags.
Orange County has traditionally been a Republican stronghold in bright blue California, but it voted in 2016 in favor of Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton by a small margin.
Clinton won 49.8 percent of the vote, against Trump’s 44.9 percent.
In all, 61.7 percent of the state voted for Clinton in California, while 31.6 percent voted for Trump four years ago.
But residents of the very wealthy GOP stronghold of Newport Beach were on hand to help fill the coffers of Trump’s campaign, which is set to catch up in just 16 days until the 2020 election.
In September, when Biden and the Democrats raised $ 383 million – a new political fundraising record – Trump and Republicans made $ 247.8.
The president will resume his demonstrations later Sunday, flying from California to Nevada for a rally in Carson City.
