  美国总统特朗普可是个风云人物,要是能跟他合个影,你需要有啥准备?反正准备好大把美金是错不了的。
          据《华尔街日报》报道,美国时间12日晚,特朗普在他位于华盛顿的特朗普国际酒店举办圆桌会议,与会宾客被要求捐出“异常高的金额”给“特朗普胜利委员会”。该委员会旨在为特朗普2020年总统竞选、共和党全国委员会(RNC)募集资金。
          US President Trump host a roundtable with supporters at his hotel in
Washington on last Wednesday, where guests were required to donate that
unusually high sum to Trump Victory, a joint fundraising committee for the
president's campaign and the Republican National Committee.

          按照计划,特朗普在这场闭门圆桌大会上发表讲话。当然,参与者每人需要缴纳10万美元。宣传海报上有明码标价哦~

          随后,客人们还有跟特朗普合影的机会,每对夫妇7万美元。而最后的晚餐环节,每对宾客花上3.5万美元,就可以跟总统共进晚餐,特朗普也会进行讲话。当然,如果宾客直接捐了10万美元的,后面的合影和晚餐环节,就不用再掏钱了。这些细节也都得到了组织官方的确认。
          Following the roundtable event, where Mr. Trump would deliver remarks
behind closed doors, guests can pay $70,000 per couple to attend a photo
opportunity with the president. Couples can also pay $35,000 to attend a larger
dinner with Mr. Trump, where he will also speak. (Rest assured: Donors who pay
the $100,000 can stay for the photos and dinner without opening up their wallets
a second time.) The details of the event were confirmed by a campaign
official.
          这动辄上万美金的捐款,确实比一般竞选活动要贵。不过据美国政治新闻网站《The
Hill》报道,这也不是没有先例。2016年美国大选期间,民主党候选人希拉里在内布拉斯卡的筹资晚餐前,就开出了每人至少10万美元的标准。美国前总统奥巴马的筹资活动,每人也要收取3.58万美元。
          The price is higher than the typical campaign event, but is not unheard of.
In 2016, then-Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton charged at least
$100,000 per head for a fundraising dinner in Nebraska. Former President Obama
in 2012 headlined fundraising events that cost upwards of $35,800 per
person.
          只不过特朗普这样的筹资活动,还是让人质疑。特朗普喜欢在自家酒店(或者家族旗下公司)举行筹资以及其他活动。尤其在他仍保留公司所有权的情况下,尽管他在任期间将资产交由自己儿子的信托基金管理。
          The president's penchant for holding fundraisers and other events at his
hotel —and at other entities his family company owns—has drawn scrutiny from
ethics experts, particularly as Mr. Trump retains ownership of his company,
though he has placed his assets into a trust managed by his adult sons while he
is in office.
          所以……这好几万美元的晚餐,到底吃的啥呢?
