Steve Wynn co-hosting Trump fundraiser in New York


L.E. Baskow

Steve Wynn gives a keynote address during the Global Gaming Expo at the Sands Expo on Tuesday, Sept. 30, 2014.

The 2020 presidential election is more than three years away, but the fundraising is already going strong.

One of the biggest events of all is being held Tuesday night in New York City with a top price of $250,000 per couple. That will get you dinner, a photo with President Donald J. Trump, and a roundtable discussion, according to a copy of the invitation that was obtained by Capitol Watch.

Those eating dinner and having a photo taken — without the roundtable — will pay $100,000 per couple, the invitation says. Those arriving only for dinner will pay $35,000 per person.

The exact location in New York City is not mentioned on the invitation, which says that "additional details will be provided upon RSVP.''

The fundraiser is being co-hosted by Trump's national finance chairman Steve Wynn, a longtime casino mogul who visited the state Capitol in Hartford when he was trying to bring a casino to Connecticut. He is co-hosting with Ronna McDaniel, the chairwoman of the Republican National Committee.

The money is being raised for Trump Victory, which is a joint effort by the RNC and Donald J. Trump for President Inc.
