Donald Trump campaign resumes in-person fundraisers in June. What COVID-19?

• One Trump fundraising event in Dallas next month has a price tag of $580,600 per couple.

Impeached president Donald Trump is scheduled to headline in-person fundraisers as early as June, which would be his first since the coronavirus outbreak stopped campaign events in March.

Alex Isenstadt at Politico was first to break the news late on Friday.

"Trump plans to headline a gathering at a private home in Dallas on June 11, and an outdoor event at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J., on June 13," reports Michelle Ye Hee Lee at the Washington Post:

Both events will be geared toward wealthy donors, charging $580,600 per couple for the Dallas event and $250,000 per person for the New Jersey event. The money will go to Trump Victory, a committee that raises money for the Trump campaign, the Republican Party and 22 state parties.

Party officials said they plan to take safety measures to ensure the health of the president and attendees. About 25 people are expected to attend each event, which is a smaller gathering than many other Trump Victory fundraisers. The events were first reported Friday by Politico.

The White House Medical Unit and U.S. Secret Service will evaluate all attendees to decide whether they can attend the event, according to a party official, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss security measures. Each site will be professionally cleaned and sanitized, the official said.

Attendees will be tested for the coronavirus the day of the event, with testing costs covered by Trump Victory, the official said. All attendees must test negative to attend, complete a "wellness questionnaire" and pass a temperature screening, the official said.
