WASHINGTON, D.C. – (11-29-20) – With only 7 weeks until his presidency ends, several cities across the country are threatening to sue Trump over $850,000 of unpaid campaign rallies he held during the 2019 and 2016 presidential campaigns.
The city of El Paso, TX said confirmed to JRL CHARTS on Friday, that they will be hiring outside legal counsel as part of their fight to obtain more than $500,000 from the Trump Campaign to cover the security and other costs from a rally he held there in February 2019.
Trump Campaign Owes $850,000 to City of El Paso
The Trump Campaign’s outstanding debt includes $470,000 in additional services provided by the local police and fire departments, as well as an additional $99,000 in late fees.
Last year, the Center for Public Integrity included El Paso among a list of 10 cities that have yet to be paid by the Trump Campaign for rallies held back in 2016.
With the Georgia Senate races on the line, how will Trump be able to hold a rally with cities refusing to flip the bill for fear of not being reimburse by the Trump Campaign?
Donations To Trump’s Baseless Election Challenge Also Go Toward Paying Off Campaign Debt
A number of city officials have now confirmed to JRL CHARTS that the Trump Campaign has still not paid their bills and while the Trump Campaign claims to have never received their invoices, city officials aren’t buying it and are now threatening legal action.
The debts range from just a $3,000 to more than $200,000 in Albuquerque, with El Paso owed the most of them all.
The city of Burlington, Vermont, confirmed to our newsroom that the Trump Campaign still has not paid their bill of $8,464.27, the amount they are owed from a campaign rally held in January 2016.
“Mr Trump’s failure to cooperate with local law enforcement officials and lack of communication with the public and ticketholders put undue strain on the City’s police, and unnecessarily hurt downtown businesses,” said Burlington Mayor Miro Weinberger in June 2016.
President Trump has several legal and possibly criminal investigations awaiting him after he leaves office on January 20th, 2020. One wonders which one will be the craziest to watch!
