Trump Scheduled to Attend Fundraiser on Same Day as Son’s Graduation

On May 17, former President Donald Trump is set to deliver the keynote speech at the annual Lincoln Reagan Dinner hosted by the Minnesota Republican Party. On the same day, he will be attending his son Barron’s high school graduation.

The graduation ceremony is scheduled for mid-morning. Trump (77) has a private plane and may very likely be able to attend both events, including the dinner.

On May 17th,  the Lincoln Reagan Dinner at St. Paul’s RiverCentre will feature former president Donald Trump as a speaker for the Republican Party of Minnesota.

According to State GOP Chairman David Hann, there are signs that the Trump team views Minnesota as a state that might decide the election. According to him, the polls are very tight.

To enable Trump to attend the event, Judge Merchan, who is overseeing the alleged “hush money” case involving the former President, announced on April 30 that the court will not meet on May 17.

Trump is on trial in Manhattan for 34 felonies,  including counts of allegedly falsifying company documents before the 2016 presidential election. Trump denies all allegations against him, calling them hoaxes and election interference.

An advisor to Trump’s 2024 campaign, Chris LaCivita, thinks the Republican nominee can win Minnesota, a state that has historically been leaning Democrat.

He told prestige media that he believes the Biden team is intentionally trying to draw attention to their weak plans to extend their wins in North Carolina and Florida, but there is a genuine chance for the Trump campaign to actually do that in Minnesota and Virginia.

After deciding that Trump had again breached a gag order issued during his trial, Judge Merchan fined him $1,000 on Monday and threatened to consider throwing the Republican icon to prison if the offenses persisted.

Deborah Tarasoff, the accounts payable supervisor, and Jeffrey McConney, the controller of the Trump Organization, testified before the court recently.  Their testimonies aided Trump, leaving the prosecution empty-handed.
