Announcement Date: January 20, 2018

A fundraiser for the Republican Party and President Trump’s reelection campaign celebrating President Trump’s first year in office was held at Mar-a-Lago, with tickets starting at $100,000 per couple. President Trump initially planned to attend but remained in Washington, D.C. to address the government shutdown. The fundraiser was instead headed by Executive Vice President of the Trump Organization Eric Trump, his wife Lara Trump, and Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel. CNN reported that the president still planned to address the event with a recorded video message.
