The Republican National Committee moves part of its spring donor retreat to Mar-a-Lago and taps Donald Trump as a headliner

 The Republican National Committee will move part of its spring donor retreat to Mar-a-Lago where former President Donald Trump will speak. 

The Washington Post reported Monday on the change, with the RNC deciding to move Saturday evening's programming from a luxury Palm Beach hotel to the former president's ocean-front private club. 

The April weekend retreat attracts the party's most influential donors, with sources telling The Post that a number of them have said they wanted to visit Mar-a-Lago.

The move also allows the former president to profit off the retreat. 

The RNC will pay Trump for use of Mar-a-Lago and for the dinner that will be served. 

A source told The Post that it would be easier to accommodate the expected 350 people who've expressed interest in seeing Trump speak at his club, as it's already under Secret Service protection.   

The Post reported on the move following a Politico report that said Trump's lawyers had sent a cease-and-desist letter to the RNC, as well as to the National Republican Congressional Committee and National Republican Senatorial Committee, for using Trump's name and likeness in fundraising emails and merchandise. 

Politico had reported that Trump had been furious that the Republican entities had used his name while still supporting GOP lawmakers who voted in favor of his impeachment.  

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has been trying to smooth over tensions.

At the Conservative Political Action Conference eight days ago, Trump named every Republican House member and every senator who voted to impeach and then convict him. 


Trump also continues to bash Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. 

By hosting the retreat on Trump's own turf and with Trump as the headliner, the RNC is seemingly trying to make nice with the party's chief attraction.

The Post reported that a speech from Trump received the most interest from GOP donors. 

Other Republicans making appearances include Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. Both DeSantis and Pompeo will deliver remarks at the Palm Beach hotel and not Mar-a-Lago.     

At CPAC, Trump kept the door open to another presidential run in 2024. 

Unlike in 2020, when the RNC fully backed Trump's White House run, chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel has already said the party will remain neutral in the 2024 GOP primary.
