President Trump uses harassment aimed at cabinet for campaign cash pitch

President Trump is using protests against his contentious “zero tolerance” immigration policy — and staffers tasked with defending it — to ask for campaign funds.

In an email Tuesday, Trump asked supporters to drop at least $1 to “show the Left we will not be intimidated.”

The fund-raising pitch rattles off headlines, starting with the Virginia restaurant forcing White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders to leave as a reason to donate. The Red Hen restaurant in Lexington refused to serve her because of her affiliation with the Trump administration.

Then, the email takes on chanting protesters who staked out Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen’s Washington townhouse Friday.

The campaign message pits most of the blame on California Rep. Maxine Waters for calling on anti-Trump activists to confront top members of his administration in public places.

Nielsen experienced one of the more high-profile examples of this last week when protesters ambushed her as she dined at a Mexican restaurant.

Donations through the email titled “Harassment” would fund Trump’s 2020 reelection bid and the Republican National Committee.
