Trump begs supporters to donate for CNN’s ‘upcoming’ trial

Former President Donald Trump on Friday asked supporters in his online newsletter for donations for his “imminent” lawsuit against CNN for calling his voter fraud allegations regarding the 2020 presidential election “baseless”, according to The Daily Beast.

“I call on my best and most dedicated supporters to add their names in support of me in my impending lawsuit against CNN’s Fake News,” Trump wrote. “Add your name immediately to show your support for my upcoming CNN fake news lawsuit.”

The email ended with a link to Trump’s online donation portal. The Republican National Committee (RNC) has warned Trump that he will stop paying his legal fees if he declares his candidacy for president for 2024, according to ABC News.

The RNC has paid nearly $2 million to companies representing Trump since October 2021.

Trump’s fundraising request came after his lawyers sent CNN a 282-page letter in July asking the media network to remove all uses of the “big lie” and “lying” from its coverage of his claims. that the election was fraudulent.

Pushing the defamation allegations further, Lindsey Halligan, a Florida attorney for Trump, said on Steve Bannon’s “War Room” podcast on July 29 that “the big lie” was a German phrase written in a book by Adolf Hitler, Insider reported.

“CNN called Trump a liar and called his questions about voter fraud a ‘big lie,’ which is actually related to Adolf Hitler,” Halligan said.

While the lawsuit has yet to materialize, Trump’s legal team has claimed he “subjectively believes” the election was stolen. However, at present, no evidence of electoral fraud has been found.
