OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

Donald Trump, the former president, just received a substantial financial update that might have a significant impact on his campaign.

According to a Fox News story, a number of rich contributors intend to back Trump now that he has the Republican nominee for president in November. The good news for the Trump campaign is that he is trying to catch up to President Biden in terms of fundraising.

Trump is scheduled to entertain a number of prominent Republican donors this weekend at Mar-A-Lago for an event known as the “Inaugural Leadership Dinner.” According to Fox News, the dinner will be headed by billionaire hedge fund manager John Paulson and co-chaired by casino tycoon Steve Wynn, oil executive Harold Hamm, hotelier Robert Bigelow, and hedge fund juggernaut Robert Mercer and his daughter Rebekah.

Republicans are becoming more united, as evidenced by the fact that Bigelow and Hamm had previously backed Florida Governor Ron DeSantis prior to his withdrawal from the race following Iowa. Additionally, Hamm had contributed money to Nikki Haley’s failed presidential campaign.

Along with former Trump Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, co-owners of the Chicago Cubs and New York Jets, Todd Ricketts and Woody Johnson, will also be present.

The “Chairman” level of the event’s tickets, which include a seat at the former president’s dining table, will set you back $824,600.

“Now that President Trump won the primaries, defeating all 10 contenders by a landslide, I think it’s time for Republicans to unite behind him,” Paulsen recently said in a statement to Bloomberg. “For that reason, I’m hosting this inaugural event to galvanize the broad support there is for the president.”

Following President Biden’s fundraiser in New York City, which raised over $26 million for his reelection campaign, is this event. The enormous figure was heralded as a significant victory for the Biden campaign, but pro-Palestine demonstrators viciously heckled guests outside the event, yelling things like “genocide Joe” and “we’re never voting for Biden.”

The gathering this weekend marks the beginning of a significant fundraising drive for the Trump campaign, as he has secured the Republican presidential nominee. Recently, Trump invited Kari Lake to Mar-A-Lago for another fundraiser. This event broke records for a non-incumbent candidate by raising a sizable $1 million.

Last month in Palm Beach, the former president also had a meeting with a different set of possible wealthy donors, among them Elon Musk.
