Paul Ryan’s “finance event” with Donald Trump tonight at the Intrepid Sea, Air, and Space Museum in New York will be closed to reporters, a campaign aide said.
The event is not a fundraiser, in the campaign’s parlance, because no checks are being collected specifically for attending the event. But the event is only open to the campaign’s top-tier donors, part of a several day finance retreat including strategy and polling briefings by campaign aides in New York City tomorrow night. The campaign has only opened fundraisers to reporters.
A fundraiser earlier in the day at the Hilton New York will be open to a small “pool” of reporters.
POLITICO’s Maggie Haberman reported that Trump is expected to speak at the event on the decommissioned World War II aircraft carrier tonight.
