RNC 2020

Trump's D.C. hotel hosting at least 15 events for donors amid RNC, including bourbon tasting with Rand Paul

Before he delivers his speech on the final night of the Republican National Convention, President Trump is expected to meet with top donors at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, where supporters will also have the opportunity to attend a bourbon tasting with Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and listen to Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani present a panel titled "Law and Order President."

Officials involved in the planning of Trump's visit told The Washington Post he will head to the hotel a few hours before he gives his address from the South Lawn of the White House.

The Trump International Hotel has been buzzing with activity this week, with at least 15 events scheduled for prominent donors and supporters. The Post obtained a copy of an agenda for the week, and the offerings include a panel on "Defeating the Deep State," presented by Pam Bondi, a former Florida attorney general, and ex-Trump adviser Sebastian Gorka; an "Art of the Deal" reception with trade adviser Peter Navarro; and remarks from Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, Interior Secretary David Bernhardt, and White House aide Andrew Giuliani.
