The tech billionaire will host supporters at a golf event in Rancho Mirage, Calif., for the outing next week, USA Today reported. For $100,000, supporters can join the golf event and have their photo taken with Trump. For $250,000, supporters can take a photo, attend the event and participate in a roundtable discussion. Both donation options are available for two guests. 

As of the end of 2019, Ellison had never contributed to Trump’s campaign or any political action committees supporting the president, USA Today reported.


The contributions will help fund Trump Victory, a joint fundraising committee launched by the Trump campaign, the Republican National Committee (RNC) and state GOP organizations, USA Today reported. The funds will be distributed between Trump’s primary and general election accounts, the RNC and state parties, in addition to funding the Republican National Convention.

After the golf event, Trump will also appear in Phoenix for a campaign rally on Wednesday. He is also scheduled to make other California campaign stops, including in Bakersfield and Beverly Hills. 

Ellison has personally contributed $9.5 million to federal candidates and political action committees since 1993, the outlet reported. In 2017, he backed Rep.
