Trump Rips RNC, Demands That They Cease Using his Likeness

Someone was NOT happy.

Donald Trump may very well be the face of the latest incarnation of the Republican Party, but they need to stop using his face, apparently.

Trump recently invigorated the GOP during a bodacious and bombastic speech at CPAC in which the former President made a very unsubtle hint about running for office again in 2024, and on the Republican ticket.

But that doesn’t mean that The Don is 100% on board with the way in which the RNC operates, and his latest tirade against them proves it.

The Republican National Committee is defending its right to use former President Donald Trump’s name in fundraising appeals after he demanded they put an end to the practice.

In a Monday letter to Trump attorney Alex Cannon, RNC chief counsel J. Justin Riemer said the committee “has every right to refer to public figures as it engages in core, First Amendment-protected political speech” and said “it will continue to do so in pursuit of these common goals.”

But he maintained that Trump had also “reaffirmed” to the chair of the RNC, Ronna McDaniel, over the weekend “that he approves of the RNC’s current use of his name in fundraising and other materials, including for our upcoming donor retreat event at Palm Beach at which we look forward to him participating.”

But that wasn’t the end of it.

Trump responded to the letter with a statement that put that agreement in doubt. “No more money for RINOS,” or Republican in name only, he stated. “They do nothing but hurt the Republican Party and our great voting base — they will never lead us to Greatness.” He instead again urged his supporters to send their contributions directly to his own Save America PAC by using his personal website, adding, “We will bring it all back stronger than ever before!”

Trump is expected to address the RNC in April, which could provide an opportunity for either clarity or calamity.
