Ayyyeee… What’s Goodie Everyone. So I got some tea and it involves Trump, some donors and what he has told them.
“I think the Senate is tough actually. The Senate is very tough,”. “There are a couple senators I can’t really get involved in. I just can’t do it. You lose your soul if you do. I can’t help some of them. I don’t want to help some of them.”
Trump told donors privately this past week that it will be “very tough” for Republicans to keep control of the Senate in the upcoming election because some of the party’s senators are candidates he cannot support.
Attendees shared the president’s words on the condition of anonymity as the event was a closed door gathering. It was held before the last presidential debate between Trump and Democrat Joe Biden.
Jesse Hunt who is a spokesman for the National Republican Senatorial Committee, pushed back on the notion that Trump doesn’t support some Senate Republicans.
“The Republican led Senate and President Trump have had a great partnership over the last four years, highlighted by the fact the chamber is poised to confirm a third Trump Supreme Count nominee in the coming days,” Hunt said Saturday. “Nancy Pelosi has turned the House into a liberal nightmare and if Chuck Schumer gets control of the Senate, he’ll do the same thing.”
At the fundraiser, Trump lamented that he could not send federal forces into some of the cities that were racked by violence and protests this summer.
“Unless it’s a strict emergency, we’re not allowed to go in. We’re going to find more and more emergencies,” Trump said.
Trump bashed the news media, Rep. Adam B. Schiff (D-Calif.), the House Intelligence Committee chairman who led the impeachment investigation of Trump, and the obsession from some Democrats with discussing Russian disinformation comments that closely aligned with what he has said recently at public rallies.
There were no tough questions, the attendee said. Trump was lavishly praised by those present for his work on the coronavirus pandemic, and his effort taking on the “medical swamp,” in the words of one guest.
Tickets for the private fundraiser went for up to $250,000.
