Former President Donald Trump wasted no time seeking a fundraising boost off the heels of his lawsuits against Facebook, Google, and Twitter, with the Republican National Committee sending out emails and texts soliciting donations within minutes of the announcement.
Trump made the announcement before noon on Wednesday, arguing with his lawyers that even though Facebook is not a public company, it should be considered as a “state actor.”
Trump announces lawsuits against Facebook and Twitter, immediately starts fundraising off it
WinRed — the online fundraising division of the Republican National Committee that sent out one of the Trump lawsuit fundraising emails — had to return $122 million in donations earlier this year after people mistakenly exceeded the individual donation limit under federal law.
Ever since Trump remade the Republican Party in his image with his 2016 presidential victory, his embrace of aggressive fundraising tactics has extended to the party apparatus.
The RNC became more intertwined with the 2020 Trump campaign than it had ever been with a nominee, with the Trump team using their online fundraising and data tools that would normally remain separate, as The New York Times reported in December 2020.
Fundraising emails from Trump’s adult sons, Eric and Don Jr., got particularly aggressive and weird ahead of the 2020 election, with the brothers shaming potential donors over not being loyal enough to their father.

President Donald Trump berated his campaign manager, Brad Parscale, over lower-than-expected turnout at an indoor rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, last summer, according to a forthcoming book by the journalist Michael Wolff about Trump’s final days in the White House.
“Has Brad actually ever done anything right?” Trump vented to his aides while Parscale was in the room, an excerpt of the book published in The Times of London on Tuesday said. “He’s f—ed up everything.”The June 2020 rally was promoted as Trump’s campaign-trail comeback after COVID-19 lockdowns halted most in-person gatherings. Before the event, the Trump campaign, including Parscale, boasted that nearly 1 million people had requested tickets.
