The Washington Post reported Tuesday that invitations to the events, which are set to be hosted at the homes of two New York real estate developers, one of whom owns the Miami Dolphins, indicated that guests at the first event would be able to donate $250,000 for the opportunity to have a private discussion with the president.


A smaller package for the Friday luncheon going for $100,000 includes lunch and a photo-op with the president, according to the Post.

The money raised at Friday's events will go toward Trump Victory, a fundraising committee for the  Republican National Committee (RNC) and the Trump 2020 campaign.

Several top members of the administration and allies of the president are slated to be in attendance as well, according to the Post: Sen.
