President Trump’s re-election campaign website is offering anyone the chance to have their name appear on tonight’s official livestream of the State of the Union speech.
The site’s official price lists $35, but reports have surfaced that an email from the Trump campaign contained a link that will allow supporters to $1 and have their name displayed.
According to CNN:
“Even if you choose to only give $1, the proof of your support will send shockwaves around the world as they see every American who proudly stands behind our President,” says the campaign email, which appears to come from Eric Trump. “So before the speech, make your contribution of just $1 to have it displayed right under the livestream of the President’s State of the Union.”
The president makes his first ever State of the Union speech tonight amid swirling reports of government investigations into Russia’s influence on the 2016 election.
