(WASHINGTON) — As former President Donald Trump plots his post-White House political life, his flashy country club private properties have emerged as destination spots for Republicans looking to raise money through events that are also sure to line the former president’s pockets.
Republicans have been making the trip to Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Resort in Palm Beach, Florida, to meet with donors — despite running for office in other states. While it’s common for politicians to travel outside of their state to reach bigger donors, in the age of Trump, meet-and-greets with Trump at what was once deemed the “Winter White House” have become a particularly attractive option.
Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders held a fundraiser at Mar-a-Lago over the weekend with Trump making a “surprise appearance.” A loyalist of Trump’s since leaving the administration, Sanders is vying for the position her father, Mike Huckabee, held from 1996 to 2007 as governor of Arkansas.
“Great weekend on the campaign trail featuring a surprise appearance at one of my events by President Trump,” Sanders tweeted on Sunday evening, along with a photo of her and the former president.
Social media posts on Instagram show Sanders at Mar-a-Lago with former White House deputy chief of staff and social media director Dan Scavino and other guests at the fundraising event.

They are used to pulling the strings, ESPECIALLY the fundraising strings.
But they had no problem with gatherings like this!
But I was told associating with him was political suicide. 🤔
Oh yeah, Trump’s pockets need lining./ LOL /sarc
That sentence says a lot.
NO BIAS HERE
(WASHINGTON) — As former President Donald Trump ‘plots’ his post-White House political life, his ‘flashy’ country club private properties have emerged as destination spots for Republicans looking to raise money through events that are also sure to ‘line the former president’s pockets’.
Corn Cob is a traitor!
The snark can’t be avoided when referring to our most favorite president.
The Lord will provide.
Why was he allowed in the building. Hoping the only reason was for President Trump to look him in the eyes to tell him that he’s a marked man.
“The Arkansas Governor’s race will be decided by Arkansas voters, not the rich and famous of New York and Palm Beach,” Christian Gonzalez, a campaign spokesperson for Sanders’ only Republican opponent, Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge, said in a statement to ABC News. “The only time Attorney General Rutledge has been to Mar-a-Lago was to fundraise for President Trump. Attorney General Rutledge’s events usually involve barbecue and catfish not crab cakes and escargot.”
These people are incapable of figuring this stuff out. Amazing.
Hmmm....just figured out how I can top being 3rd row in Carson City rally with my 5 hawt friends as he tells them he loves them and points to me.
I’ll attend one of these shin digs, get a photo and boom!
Why the HELL, is an OREGON paper, covering fundraising for an Arkansas election, which fundraising is happening in Florida?
Not when he has 75 million followers who love him.
