GOP Donors Worry That Trump Has ‘No Plan and No Strategy’ for 2020


According to POLITICO, a dozen sources connected to Trump’s re-election campaign, and to donors who attended the retreat, said they are very nervous about the plans laid out by Parscale, who served as the president’s digital media director in 2016. Parscale has never run a large political campaign before.

One outside adviser who’s close to the campaign said:

“Donors are asking for the plan and they have no plan. There’s not a strategy.”

Donors expressed confusion about why America First Action, the president’s main 2020 super PAC, spent $3 million of its $34 million in last year’s elections to back Rep. Pete Sessions (R-TX), who lost.

“There is true reluctance to give because there’s no plan or coherent structure to give to,” said one anonymous Republican fundraiser. “The campaign is doing really well with small-dollar donations, but it’s the high-end contributions the PAC is failing on.”

Republican donors are concerned that Trump’s re-election campaign officials have reached incorrect conclusions from November’s midterm shellacking that saw an historic Blue Wave and Democrats taking control of the House.

One donor friend of Trump said:

“There’s a lot of anxiety. There isn’t a lot of confidence.”
