According to an investigation by Huffington Post reporter S.V. Date, a dog rescue charity linked to Lara Trump has spent nearly 2 million dollars at various Trump properties over the last several years and dropped hundreds of thousands of dollars on a fundraising event on Saturday. A permit filed with the town of Palm Beach, Florida, reveals Big Dog Ranch Rescue’s Saturday fundraiser at Mar-A-Lago cost nearly $225,000. As Date points out in his article, that money ends up directly in former president Trump’s hands.
And speaking of the former president, Trump dropped by the fundraiser to quickly endorse the idea of his daughter-in-law running for senate in 2022. “I didn’t exactly prepare for this, but I was walking by, and I heard everybody screaming,” Trump said. “I want to thank Lara who has been so incredible — and I dunno, are you running for the Senate? I hear she’s going to run for the Senate!”
