Trump to attend fundraiser in Newport Beach on Sunday
President Trump is scheduled to attend a private fundraiser Sunday in Newport Beach.
Tickets for the event at the home of tech executive Palmer Luckey range from $2,800 for an individual admission to $150,000 for a couple to attend and take a photo with the president, according to the invitation. Ric Grenell, Trump’s former acting director of national intelligence, is expected to be a special guest.
A cash-strapped President Trump stopped in California to raise money 16 days before election day, appearing at a high-dollar Newport Beach fundraiser.
Few other details were released. Luckey co-founded the Oculus Rift virtual-reality system. His company sold for an estimated $3 billion to Facebook in 2014.
Trump was hospitalized this month with COVID-19 but has been traveling to campaign events for some time now, to the concern of some medical specialists. The president said he is now free of coronavirus.
Heather Rangel, a spokeswoman for the Newport Police Department, declined to give any information about the president’s visit or about any road closures planned in advance of the trip. Protesters are expected.
