Trump is gearing up to bleed the RINOs dry. In a new statement from Trump, the former president said that “Republicans in name only” shouldn’t continue to receive funding and donors should direct their funds to his Save America PAC instead.

The Daily Caller reports:
Trump’s legal counsel sent a cease-and-desist letter Saturday to The Republican National Committee (RNC), the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) and the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) telling them to stop using his name for fundraising.
The RNC’s chief counsel, Justin Riemer, wrote a letter Monday to Trump lawyer Alex Cannon responding to the cease-and-desist letter. The GOP “has every right to refer to public figures as it engages in core, First Amendment-protected political speech, and it will continue to do so in pursuit of these common goals,” Riemer wrote, according to Politico.
Trump has begun to endorse candidates since leaving the White House. Trump endorsed Republican South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott for reelection March 2 despite Scott’s decision to not object during Congress’ counting of the Electoral College vote on Jan. 6 and to certify then-President-elect Joe Biden’s win against Trump.
Trump endorsed Republican Louisiana Sen. John Kennedy for reelection March 4 and announced Monday his endorsement of Republican Arkansas Sen. John Boozman.
During Trump’s recent CPAC speech he vowed to endorse Republicans challenging RINOs, especially lawmakers who voted to impeach Trump a second time.
