BEVERLY HILLS—President Donald Trump is attending a fundraiser dinner in Beverly Hills on Friday, April 5 following a visit to the rebuilt border fencing in Calexico.
“Will soon be landing in Calexico, California to look at a portion of the new WALL being built on our Southern Border,” posted Trump on Twitter. “Within two years we will have close to 400 miles built or under construction & keeping our Country SAFE – not easy when the Dems are always fighting to stop you!”
Healthcare executive Lee Samson is hosting the dinner to raise money for Trump’s 2020 Campaign.
According to reports, tickets started at $15,000 for attending the dinner, $150,000 to participate in the roundtable discussion being held during the event and $50,000 for a photo session with President Donald Trump.
