RNC bought nearly $100,000 worth of copies of Trump Jr.’s new book

The Republican National Committee (RNC) reportedly purchased nearly $100,000 worth of copies of Donald Trump Jr.’s book ’Triggered’. Federal Election Commission (FEC) filings show that on Oct. 29, the RNC paid $94,800 to Booksamillion.com for ’donor mementos’. An RNC official said there wasn’t ’a large bulk purchase’, but that it was ’ordering copies to keep up with demand’.

Is this brought up because of the Democratic scandal of book sales. Think it was someone from Baltimore if I remember correctly

RNC isn't run by Trump. This is stating facts like it should be a giant bombshell.

$100k is nothing. Most of these "career" public servants will make that in 1-2 speaking engagements. Sorry, Orange man bad, so orange son bad, so book bad. My bad, NPC math is deep.

So by my estimate that's about 4k books. Probably going to be "gifts" to campaign donors or some such promotional deal.

Non-story about completely legal matter that even makes sense. It's not like he's running for mayor of Baltimore and public institutions that rely on his policies used public money to buy his books and then he laundered the money into his campaign. Why is this a story?

Yeah, I guess I would like to know why they made that purchase. Seems like a waste of money. Wonder if they got a discount.

Well it looks like this triggered the buzzfeed crew of propagandist in a big way. I have to wonder why the DNC buying "opposition research" created in the Ukraine by denounced foreign operativ steel on Trump from Fusion GPS did not trigger them like this?

For any who are interested, the RNC does give copies of books to donors. They usually send an email around saying you get a copy of a book, sometimes signed, for donating a certain amount of money. It would only make sense that they have to buy the books or something like that. It’s not the political committees just giving money to people.

Even if this was done to boost sales, which no doubt Dems will claim, considering the record campaign funds the Republicans have raised because of Trump. Also, Trump is not taking a salary for the job. Who the hell cares why the RNC bought the books. This story is another in a long line of nothing burgers
