Trump will hold rallies in 7 states in final days of election

President Trump’s daughter and White House adviser Ivanka Trump has been making a last-ditch effort in the final days before the election to raise money for the cash-strapped Trump campaign.

On Friday, just four days before Election Day, she headlined a fundraiser event in Detroit, Michigan, ahead of the President’s rally in Waterford Township, Michigan, a Trump political aide told CNN.

She has headlined eleven events since Sunday and is expected to remain on the campaign trail through Election Day.

President Trump’s campaign heads into the final days before the campaign significantly financially outgunned by the Biden campaign.

Trump campaign officials insist they have the resources to compete effectively, with advertising on television nationally and in a dozen states. And they say their ground operation will help them prevail Nov. 3. But with questions about potential legal battles in key battleground states after the election, it is clear there are efforts to line the coffers.

Ivanka Trump’s events this week have taken critical time away from in-person campaigning as a top surrogate. Friday’s haul brings Trump’s fundraising total for her father’s campaign to over $13 million just this week, and $38 million since August, the aide said.

There were roughly 30 attendees at the Friday event, which raised $3 million for the Trump campaign. The event was also attended by GOP chairwoman Ronna McDaniel. 

Earlier this week, she traveled to Mountain View and Beverly Hills, California, for a trio of high dollar fundraisers Sunday evening and Monday, respectively.

She participated in three events that raised $10 million total, the a political aide said, over two days. The Sunday event in Mountain View was an hourlong “fireside chat” at a private home.

In Beverly Hills on Monday, she attended a small private fundraising lunch at Spago and another “fireside chat” at a private home in Beverly Hills, where there were about 50 attendees, per the aide.  

Those private events come as the White House coronavirus task force has warned states, including California, against holding small gatherings that can lead to community transmission. The Michigan event appeared to follow local guidelines, which place a cap on indoor gatherings at 50 people.
