RNC WARNS TRUMP: If You Run For President, We Stop Paying Your Legal Bills, Official Says

Published on

So that’s why Donald Trump hasn’t announced his candidacy for the Presidency, and it kind of makes sense. There’s only one thing Trump wants more than the Presidency itself, and that’s to prove the 2020 election was fraudulent and that he’s still the rightful owner of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

So far the former President has spent over $2,000,000 in legal fees fighting his case. Well, Trump hasn’t, but the Republican National Committee has. The problem is, the second he announces, they stop paying the bill – and it’s not because they want to, it’s because they have to.

An RNC official told ABC News that as soon as Trump announces he is running for president, the payments would stop because the party has a “neutrality policy” that prohibits it from taking sides in the presidential primary.

In January, RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel said, “The party has to stay neutral.”

“I’m not telling anybody to run or not to run in 2024,” she added. However, she has since reaffirmed that Trump “still leads the party.”

Trump clearly wants to keep fighting to prove that the 2020 election was stolen, but he may have to throw in the towel on his legal battle if he wants another shot at a second term. As soon as he announces, payments from the RNC would stop, and until he wins the Primary race and is in the field on his own again, they would not be able to start back up.

The 2024 Presidential Primaries start at the end of January 2024 and run through June 2024. If Trump announced today, that’s a long time period he’d have to put his fight on hold.

According to the RNC’s most recent financial disclosure to the Federal Elections Commission, from October 2021 through June of this year, the RNC paid at least $1.73 million to three law firms representing Trump, including firms that are defending him in investigations into his personal family business in New York. Last month alone, the RNC paid $50,000 to a law firm representing Trump in June.

The latest tally tops the $1.6 million maximum figure that the Republican Party’s executive committee reportedly voted to cover for Trump’s personal legal bills during an RNC meeting last year, a figure that The Washington Post, which first reported on the agreement in December, wrote could increase further with the party executive committee’s approval.

RNC officials would not comment on the record for this story. Representatives for Trump also declined to comment.
