Organizer Of Pre-Insurrection Rally Plans Next Event — At Trump Property
Donald Trump has been criticized for his half-hearted pretense at disavowing the attack on the Capitol Building on January 6th. Now, his property will host the next event held by one of the organizers.
Amy Kremer’s Women For America First group held the initial permit for the rally in D.C. that turned into a deadly insurrection attempt. In April, they’ll hold another event, on Trump’s National Doral property in Miami. They’re calling it the Save America Summit, and tickets start at $500. Of course, if you really want all the ‘swag’ including an autographed book, meals, reserved seating, and moonlight putting, you’ll have to upgrade to the $5,000 per person package. (This doesn’t include accommodations, which they’re offering at $199 per night.)
Features include a Dr. Suess Low Country Boil, q-anon Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene as a featured speaker, and a focus on five topics, with “election integrity” labeled “priority.”
Election integrity, notably, was the central focus of the insurrection day rally in DC, promoting the false claims by Trump and his supporters that there was election fraud and that Biden didn’t really win. It’s these claims that are credited with inciting the mob to attack the U.S. Capitol Building, making threats against the lives of legislators.
So far, the schedule is pretty bare — it shows a golf tournament that must be registered for separately, two days of “full day of featured speakers and panel discussions” — despite only having three speakers named so far. (In addition to Rep. Greene, two additional members of Congress are named — Kat Cammack (R-FL) and Byron Donalds (R-FL).) Evenings are listed as cocktails with unnamed VIP guests and unspecified live entertainment.
The fine print notes that donations to the group cannot be written off as charitable contributions, but doesn’t specify who benefits from the $5k ticket price.
