WASHINGTON (AP) — Melania Trump is set to make a rare fundraising foray into the 2020 campaign.

President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign is asking supporters to make a donation for a chance to meet the first lady in California.

“Win a trip to meet first lady Melania Trump in Beverly Hills,” the campaign literature says. A date for the event was not included, though it is believed to be scheduled for mid-March.

Mrs. Trump largely avoided campaigning and fundraising during the 2016 presidential campaign.

The Trumps’ son, Barron, was 9 when Donald Trump became a candidate in 2015, and Melania Trump said Barron’s other parent needed to be home with him as much as possible. She appeared occasionally with Trump during the campaign and also addressed the Republican National Convention in 2016.

Barron turns 14 later this month.

Since Trump took office in 2017, the first lady has appeared with him at a few of his campaign rallies, where she is popular with his core supporters. Trump loyalists who pack his campaign venues by the thousands routinely burst into applause when the president mentions his wife’s name.

A Fox News poll of registered voters in January found more were positive than negative toward Melania Trump, 47% to 40%. An additional 13% of those surveyed didn’t give an opinion.

A spokeswoman for Trump’s campaign said the first lady is in demand.

“First lady Melania Trump is a sought-after voice from the First Family, who has the overwhelming approval and admiration of the American people,” spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany said in an emailed statement. “She is an incredible mother, wife, leader, and first lady for our nation.”

The campaign does not release fundraising details, McEnany said.

The White House did not respond to requests for comment.

  1. It took 6 days for Trump The Terrible to somehow blame President Obama for the C-Virus. Next he’ll blame the Shayna Yidden. Great leadership from the head Keystone Kapo.

    • And it took you less than 6 minutes to start blaming Trump. The man lives rent-free in your pathetic sad excuse for a brain. Give up your paranoid fantasies, which in four years haven’t come true. Get off the computer, get out of the basement and go redevelop a human connection with your mother, whose attention you obviously never got and so desperately crave.

  2. Hey pipe down you hyper maniac liar. I told you more than once that history from trump proves otherwise. When jarod messed up banon said get rid of the Jew. Yet Trump stuck thick and thin with his frum Jewish son in law despite his mistakes and things going bad.
    Rather than using ten screen names prove your theory to me. I proved to you that trump sticks with the Jew when the going gets rough
