Wednesday, White House deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders commented that President Trump will be running for re-election and will be participating in a fundraiser with major donors at his D.C. hotel this evening.
“Of course he’s running for re-election . . . Right now, he’s focused on his agenda, focused on the midterms,” she said. ‘It will be the first election he’s raising money for the party. I don’t think that’s abnormal for any president.”
