“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.
In a series of tweets earlier on Saturday, Trump warned his supporters not to contribute to the RNC.
“Totally unauthorized, do not pay,” he said in one tweet.
