House Democrats’ campaign arm sent out an email on Tuesday night to fundraise off of President TrumpDonald John TrumpSenate advances public lands bill in late-night vote Warren, Democrats urge Trump to back down from veto threat over changing Confederate-named bases Esper orders ‘After Action Review’ of National Guard’s role in protests MORE’s own attempts to raise money before his national prime-time address.
Trump sent an email asking his supporters to raise $500,000 for his “Official Secure the Border Fund” at the Trump Make America Great Again Committee, a joint fundraising committee for the Trump campaign and the Republican National Committee, before his 9 p.m. EST speech.
“Just look at the facts: drugs are poisoning our loved ones, MS-13 gang members are threatening our safety, illegal criminals are flooding our nation,” the Trump email stated.
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) released their own fundraising email later Tuesday, encouraging supporters to donate $1 “to make his shutdown speech backfire.”
“Trump just personally called his entire base to action,” the DCCC email read. “He just sent donors a disgusting email urging them to flood him with cash before his big shutdown tonight.”
The DCCC email then calls for a “massive surge of opposition” before Trump takes the stage so Republicans don’t think America supports “Trump’s despicable shutdown and abhorrent border wall.” It includes a pitch for readers to donate money to Democrats.

Trump’s prime-time address will center around his demand for a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.
The president’s demand for a border wall triggered a partial government shutdown on Dec. 22. Democrats have vowed to not approve any new funding for such a wall.
