Campaign officials are soliciting money for President Donald Trump’s “election defense fund,” but 50% of it will go to pay off his campaign debt.

The Guardian newspaper reported donations can be made to two different funds – the president’s personal fund and his joint fund with the Republican National Committee.

On the Trump contributions page, it reads: “This election isn't over. The President needs YOUR HELP! We can’t allow the Left-wing MOB to undermine our Election. President Trump needs his fiercest and most loyal defenders, like YOU, to step up and FIGHT BACK!”

It urges supporters to “contribute any amount right now to defend the integrity of our election.”

But The Guardian noted that on the contributions website, it also reads: “By donating through this page, you agree that your contribution to DJTFP (Donald J. Trump For President) will be allocated as follows (Multicandidate PAC amounts in parentheses):

“50% of each contribution, up to a maximum of $2,800 ($5,000), to be designated toward DJTFP’s  2020 general election account for general election debt retirement until such debt is retired. 50% of each contribution, up to a maximum of $2,800 ($5,000), to be designated toward DJTFP’s Recount Account. Any amount that exceeds the applicable contribution limit for 2020 general election debt retirement, including any amounts donated to DJTFP after such debt has been retired, will be designated in full toward DJFTP’s Recount Account, up to a maximum of $2,800 ($5,000).
