  • Trump is cracking down on GOP campaigns that use his name and face to raise money.
  • He wants them to send him a 5% cut of any money raised that way.
  • His team is also reminding other campaigns not to impersonate the former president.

Republicans have long used former President Donald Trump’s name and face to raise money from GOP voters.

Now, Trump’s cracking down, asking campaigns to give him a 5% cut of any money that they raise that way.

“Beginning tomorrow, we ask that all candidates and committees who choose to use President Trump’s name, image, and likeness split a minimum of 5% of all fundraising solicitations to Trump National Committee JFC,” the Trump campaign wrote in a letter to GOP vendors this week, according to POLITICO.

The campaign is also asking fundraising Republicans not to impersonate Trump, suggest that donors aren’t loyal to Trump if they don’t donate, or mention the Trump family without his campaign’s consent.

“Any vendor whose clients ignore the guidelines mentioned above will be held responsible for their clients’ actions,” reads the letter. “Repeated violations will result in the suspension of business relationships between the vendor and Trump National Committee JFC.”

Trump has long trailed President Joe Biden in fundraising, and the apparent crackdown may be an attempt to make up lost ground.
