Trump is visiting California this week.
During his brief visit, he is expected to raise as much as $15 million dollars for his 2020 campaign.
His arrival in the Golden State is triggering some people on the left.
FOX News reports:
Trump blitzes into California for major $15M fundraising push, irritating celebrities, activists
President Trump sent liberal California activists into a tizzy on Tuesday, as he executed a lunch-dinner-breakfast-lunch fundraising blitz expected to scoop up $15 million from wealthy Republicans in the state in the span of just two days.
A firestorm among Hollywood elites erupted last month as soon as Trump’s Emmy-week visit to the Golden State was announced, with “Will and Grace” star Debra Messing suggesting that anyone attending the fundraising events should be named and shamed publicly. That prompted Trump to call Messing a failed actress dabbling in racism and McCarthyism.
The president’s undeterred push westward came a day after he headlined a fiery rally in New Mexico, long a reliably liberal state that the Trump campaign has hoped to turn red in 2020. Trump has been looking to find the next Wisconsin or Michigan — states that Democrats generally have won in presidential elections but that could surprise under certain conditions, as they did in 2016. Also on the Trump team’s shortlist in the new strategy: Nevada, New Hampshire and Minnesota….
With protesters not far away, Trump kicked off his moneymaking Tuesday with a $3 million Bay Area luncheon, to be followed by a $5 million Beverly Hills dinner at the home of real estate developer Geoffrey Palmer. He’s expected to bring in an additional $7 million on Wednesday with a breakfast in Los Angeles and luncheon in San Diego.
