Despite guilty verdict, Trump plans Southern California fundraising tour

Despite a recent guilty verdict on 34 felonies, former President Donald Trump remains undeterred in his political endeavors, planning to visit Southern California next week for fundraisers in Beverly Hills and Newport Beach. The events aim to bolster his third presidential campaign amid ongoing legal challenges.

Tony Strickland, a spokesperson for the Trump campaign in Orange County, confirmed the continuation of the events following the conviction. “The fundraisers are still on. We’re excited about the president coming out,” Strickland announced.

Trump’s ability to gather substantial campaign funds will be tested as he taps into the affluent donor pools of Beverly Hills and Newport Beach. California is a strategic stop for national politicians seeking substantial financial backing. In his last visit to Orange County, Trump addressed the California Republican Party’s convention in Anaheim, where he promised “to bring back law” to California if reelected.

Tickets for the Beverly Hills event are priced between $5,000 to $250,000, reflecting the high-stakes nature of the fundraising efforts.

In the face of controversy and criticism, Strickland remarked on the vigor of Trump’s supporters post-verdict: “I think President Trump is stronger today than he was yesterday because people inherently see what it is. What the American people see is not equal justice, and people fundamentally don’t like injustice.”

Meanwhile, President Joe Biden is also scheduled to visit Los Angeles on June 15 for a fundraiser.
