MAKE HIM WASTE HIS OWN MONEY, NOT OURS:

Trump's relationship with RNC sours (KENNETH P. VOGEL, ELI STOKOLS and ALEX ISENSTADT, 06/15/16, Politico)


Donald Trump is relying heavily on the Republican Party to bolster his skeletal operation, but his campaign's relationship with the Republican National Committee is increasingly plagued by distrust, power struggles and strategic differences, according to sources in both camps.

In recent days, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus has privately grumbled that his advice doesn't seem welcome with Trump, according to one RNC insider. Other party officials have expressed frustration that Trump's campaign is trying to take too much control over a pair of fundraising committees with the party while adding little to the effort, according to campaign and party officials familiar with the relationship.

While Trump had promised Priebus that he would call two dozen top GOP donors, when RNC chief of staff Katie Walsh recently presented Trump with a list of more than 20 donors, he called only three before stopping, according to two sources familiar with the situation.
