Critics point out that Trump has built an arsenal of political committees and nonprofit groups, made up of dozens of former administration officials and loyalists, that appear to aim to uphold his political hopes for a comeback and exact revenge on Republican critics of the Congress. These groups have been aggressive in raising money through sometimes misleading appeals to the party rank and file who, according to polls, share Trump’s false views that he lost the White House to fraud.
Just days after his defeat last November, Trump launched a new political action committee, dubbed Save America, which along with his campaign and the Republican National Committee quickly raised tens of millions of dollars through text messages and petitions for email for a Trump election defense fund. “, apparently to fight the results with unfounded lawsuits alleging fraud.
The fledgling Pac had raised a whopping $ 31.5 million by year-end, but Save America spent nothing on legal expenses in this same period, according to public records. Led by Trump’s 2016 campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, Save America only spent $ 340,000 on fundraising expenses last year.
