Republican presidential candidate Donald TrumpDonald TrumpNew DNC chairman wastes no time going after Trump An urban agenda for the Trump administration Pelosi: Trump administration has 'done nothing' MORE on Saturday accused the Republican National Committee (RNC) of “deceptive Washington tricks” by fundraising off of his name.
“The RNC does not treat me well and then uses my name, without my knowledge, to raise money for themselves,” Trump’s campaign said in a press release.
“I am self-funding my campaign and this totally unauthorized notice is yet another example of deceptive Washington tricks used to take advantage of the voters and get money from the hard-working people the politicians have failed,” he added.
“I will not stand for it and neither should you.”
Trump said the RNC pulled the fundraising pitch, which said “Trump wants you to contribute to the RNC,” at his insistence.
