Trump sends out email fundraising off of Mar-a-Lago raid

On Tuesday's "Final Words With Lawrence O'Donnell," the MSNBC host opened the show by sharing an email he received from former President Donald Trump's fundraising team. That email asked for donations in response to the former president's raid on Mar-a-Lago on Monday by the FBI, who were executing a lawful search warrant and reportedly searching for classified material Trump took when he was left the White House, which is against the law. O'Donnell read the email aloud as it appeared on the screen.
"Mar-a-Lago was ambushed," the email began. “The radical left is corrupt. We have to give power back to the people. Please donate immediately to publicly stand with me against this endless witch hunt.”
This is nothing unusual for Trump. Just a few weeks ago he announced the death of his ex-wife Ivana on the Internet. The statement included a donation link at the bottom.

O'Donnell went on to explain that the email came with a donation suggestion and a deadline.
"He thinks I'm good for $45. That's what his email list managers tell him," O'Donnell said. "And there is a deadline. Deadline for my $45 contribution is immediately. Instantly. I have to drop everything and do my bit.”
Trump has made history throughout his presidency, from his trip to North Korea, his two impeachments and being the first former president to have his home searched by the FBI.
"Once again, Donald Trump is making American political history, presidential history, with this email," O'Donnell said. "An email that said, 'My house has been searched by the FBI, so please make me a political donation.' No one has ever done that. This is pure Donald Trump.”
