“Trump sends cease-and-desist letter to GOP organizations to stop fundraising off his name”


Former president Donald Trump has sent a cease-and-desist letter to at least three Republican organizations demanding they stop using his name and likeness to fundraise, two Trump advisers confirmed Saturday.

The letter, which was first reported by Politico, was sent to the Republican National Committee, the National Republican Congressional Committee and the National Republican Senatorial Committee. Representatives for the three groups did not immediately respond to requests for comment or for copies of the letter Saturday.

I understand why Trump wants to get a bigger piece of money raised using his name, but I question whether the enforceability of such a requirement would violate the First Amendment.
