Trump Defends Hamptons Fundraiser Host Stephen Ross

Friday, 09 August 2019 01:08 PM

President Donald Trump is attending a pair of fundraisers Friday in the Hamptons amid increased scrutiny of the high-dollar donors helping to finance his reelection campaign.

Among them is Stephen Ross, the real estate developer whose Related Companies owns Equinox and SoulCycle, who is hosting one of the events. He is also the majority owner of the Miami Dolphins.

“He’s a great friend of mine; he’s a very successful guy. We were competitors but friends in real estate in New York in the old days,” Trump told reporters outside the White House Friday morning. “He’s probably more inclined to be a liberal if you want to know the truth, but he likes me, he respects me.”

Trump insisted the the scrutiny will actually be positive. He says, "The controversy makes Steve Ross hotter."

Trump said he is expecting to raise between $11 million and $12 million Friday afternoon. He'll then be heading to New Jersey for summer vacation at his Bedminster golf course.
