Trump sets Southland fundraiser for rare California visit
NEWPORT BEACH - President Trump is scheduled to visit Orange County on Sunday for a private fundraiser at tech mogul Palmer Luckey’s estate.
Invitations for Sunday’s fundraiser at Luckey’s Newport Beach home show tickets ranging from $2,800 for an individual admission to $150,000 for a couple to attend and take a photo with the president, according to the Orange County Register.
Richard Grenell, Trump’s former acting director of national intelligence, is also slated to be a special guest at the event, the Los Angeles Times reported.
The event was originally slated to take place Oct. 6, but was postponed after Trump contracted the coronavirus.
Earlier in Florida, President Trump told supporters he’s not afraid of former President Barack Obama campaigning for Democrat Joseph R. Biden because “they did a lousy job” in eight years in office.
Speaking at a campaign rally in Ocala, Florida, Trump recounted how an adviser recently told him with concern that Mr. Obama was coming out on the campaign trail for Mr. Biden.
“I said, ‘Well, you know he campaigned harder than Hillary [Clinton] last time. So why do we care?’” Mr. Trump said. “I said, ‘Is that good or bad?’ I think it’s a good thing, because you know they did a lousy job, and I wouldn’t be president of the United States if they did a good job. I probably wouldn’t have run.”
He said, “They did a lousy job and that’s why I’m your president.”
The president noted that Black unemployment has been lower during his presidency, before the pandemic, than it was during Mr. Obama’s time in office.
