Friend,

There's new opposition against my father and this Administration every day. The mainstream media continues to play politics, creating division and turning the American people against one another.

But as a loyal supporter of our movement, I know you know the truth.

My father has spoken out time and time again against those who have tried to bring this country down, and will always do so to protect hardworking Americans whose values have been forgotten by Washington.

To stand with us, please consider making a crucial end-of-month contribution before the deadline tomorrow: Contribute $1.

We're working to change the course of this country for the better. My father will always stand for what is right, Friend, and hopes you will too.

Please, make a contribution of just $1 to help us crush our goal this month.

Thank you,

Eric Trump
