DONALD Trump has called for three major Republican fundraisers to stop using his name and likeness to raise money.
A Trump adviser on Saturday confirmed that former president’s attorneys were sending cease and desist letters to the Republican National Committee, the National Republican Congressional Campaign and the National Republican Senate Campaign.

In the letters, the groups were asked to stop using his name and likeness for fundraising emails and goods.
The adviser said Trump is sensitive to the use of his name and likeness for branding purposes, especially since the groups in question supported Republicans who voted against him in his second impeachment trial.
Seven Republican senators voted to indict Trump over the January 6 attack in which the former president’s supporters stormed the Capitol building.
Trump is reportedly using his Save America SuperPAC to raise funds for his hand-picked Republican candidates in the 2022 congressional election, Reuters reported.

Some of these candidates are expected to challenge Republican incumbents who Trump would rather not have in office.
In a statement to Politico on Saturday, Trump confirmed that he would fight Alaska’s Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski, who was one of seven who voted for the indictment.
“Under no circumstances will I support the failed candidate from the large state of Alaska, Lisa Murkowski.
“She represents her state badly and her country even worse. I don’t know where other people will be next year, but I know where I’ll be – in Alaska, where she’s fighting a disloyal and very bad senator.”
During a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Florida last week, Trump suggested that he could run for president again in 2024.
“Who knows, I might even decide to beat her a third time,” Trump said during his speech, reiterating his widely refuted claim that he actually beat Democratic candidate – and now President – Joe Biden in the 2020 election.

“The incredible journey that we started together and that is far from over,” said Trump during his speech.

“We will win and America will be stronger and bigger than ever.”
