Trump is hosting a 2020 fundraiser this month, and tickets are $35,000

President Trump will appear at a fundraising dinner for the 2020 election on June 28, his first such event for the next campaign cycle, which will not begin for about two more years.

The funds collected will go to Trump Victory, a fundraising committee authorized by the official Trump campaign as well as the Republican National Committee. RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel is also attending.

Individual tickets for the evening are a hefty $35,000 per person, a detail that quickly caught the attention of Trump's critics given the president's populist message. The median wage earned by an individual American in 2015 was $29,930.
