Cut the check: Trump asks for 5% from down-ballot candidates who use his image

Former President Donald Trump’s campaign is asking for a 5% cut of funds from candidates who fundraise off of his image and likeness.

In a letter sent to Republican digital vendors, obtained by Politico, Trump campaign co-managers Chris LaCivita and Susie Wiles requested the funds be sent to Trump National Committee JFC. All candidates or committees that use his image and likeness fall under the requirements outlined.
