Plan consequently and keep away from anywhere west of West Hollywood if you could today.
The multi-tiered collecting at the palatial unfold of nursing care CEO Lee Samson sees tickets starting from $15,000 to $50,000 for an image with POTUS, who has a hardly ever visited home of his own close by. If you really want to climb on the Trump Train, big Republican spenders have ponied up $a hundred and fifty,000 to enroll in a 4:45 PM roundtable with the incumbent Friday afternoon, in line with the invite.
After sitting down along with his truly wealthy pals, POTUS will spend a chunk of time with the extra commonplace humans and supply a speech at five: forty five PM.
As is his tendency on maximum hat-in-hand trips, Trump gained’t be hanging around in a single day in L.A. The ex-real property developer intends to whip returned to the chopper at 6:20 PM after which take off from LAX a bit later for a quick jaunt to Las Vegas for a Saturday speech.
That “bit later” is some so-known as “executive time” whilst we hear that POTUS is trying to drop in on the rump National Golf Club in Rancho Palos Verdes earlier than heading to Sin City from LAX.

Knowing where their bread may be buttered too, Sens. Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts each have held L.A. Rallies in recent weeks and feature taken some time to get close to nicely-heeled enterprise insiders.
Still, whilst L.A. Is wherein the Dems come for cash, the scattering of Republicans extra than makeup for their apparently smaller numbers by means of laying out some big greenbacks.
Trump’s ultimate fundraising ride to L.A. In March 2018 saw the cutting-edge POTUS snare almost $5 million for the GOP in a Beverly Hills event.
