RNC/Trump emails - the fleecing of his supporters

Just thought this deserves it's own thread - so many good topics get lost in the "Nod" thread.

Here's my original post - edited a little:

Email from the GOP:

Trump Rallies are back!
Despite Big Tech’s efforts to SILENCE President Trump, he’s announced plans to come down to Florida to speak to great American Patriots at an EPIC rally.
We’re counting on YOU to step up and ensure that the event is an overwhelming success. We need you to contribute to the Florida Rally Fundraising Blitz.
With your support, Republicans will post a MASSIVE fundraising haul on the day of President Trump’s Florida Rally, which will show that he still has the support of True Patriots. Big Tech can’t silence that!

Are any democrats "True Patriots"? You have to understand the rhetoric behind using loaded phrases like these. They're there to divide - to separate - to fight.

Biden doesn't need red hats or merchandise to profit over.

Biden doesn't lie in his emails.. Every single Trump related email is full of lies.

In Trump related emails - there's always a pressure to give money. And their tactic is to make you feel like it's urgent to donate money. And when you do - you don't realize you logged in for a monthly payment plan.

Here's a sample message in these emails:

According to our records, your Sustaining Membership has EXPIRED.

Member Email: ***@***.com
Expiration Date: 12/31/2020

This is an official notice that your Sustaining Membership has EXPIRED. If you don’t renew soon, your status will be marked as lapsed.

You’re one of our TOP supporters, Jamie, so we wanted to give you one more chance.

1) I was never had a sustaining membership

2) How can I be a top supporter if I never sent any support?

Here's another sample:

We’ve been busy putting together President Trump’s Official Birthday Card, and the response has been so overwhelming that we’re running out of room. So you NEED TO HURRY!

We only have enough room for 45 more signatures, and we can only hold your spot for ONE MORE HOUR.

1) You are NOT putting together a card

2) You don't only have room for 45 more signatures

3) Hurry - Give Us money NOW!!!!!

--------------------------------------

You will not find these tactics in a Biden email. It's sad and pathetic.


And today's email - I'm so happy that they are able to "Save"

We’re planning a big surprise, and we want you to be part of it.

We’re putting together President Trump’s ONLY Official SURPRISE Birthday Card.

We even saved a nice spot for your name on the card, but we need to finish putting it all together soon, so we can only hold it for ONE HOUR.
The best part is that if you sign RIGHT NOW, there will still be enough room left over that you’ll be able to include a personalized message for President Trump to read!

People - just make sure you're not signing the Unofficial Trump Surprise Birthday card!

I wonder how many people are thankful that there will be enough room left for a personalized message.

Again the difference in tactics when begging for money is like night and day.


This is how Biden asks to contribute:

Please, consider giving a $7 gift to the DNC before its end-of-month fundraising deadline. As much as I hate to ask, I know firsthand the power of this grassroots team -- and that’s why I need you by my side.

--------------------------------------------------

This is how RNC/Trumps asks:

Every single Patriot from across the Country must step up RIGHT NOW if we’re going to successfully DEFEND the integrity of this Election. President Trump is calling on YOU to bolster our Official Defend America Fund.

For the NEXT HOUR: you can INCREASE your impact by 1000%.

Please contribute $5 immediately to the Official Defend America Fund and to increase your impact by 1000%. >>

---------------------------------------------------

I know that real Americans, like YOU, will ALWAYS FIGHT for our Country. YOU are a true Patriot through and through, which is why when I saw our beautiful, limited-edition MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN HATS, I just knew you had to have one.

I’ve been told we only have a few left, but because you’ve been such a strong supporter since day one, I’ve reserved one just for you.

I can hold it for the next hour, Kevin, so don’t wait.


This was their NYE email - I'm amazed that Donny had time to notice my name was missing AND was talking to someone on the phone about it!

We just got off the phone with President Trump. He was reviewing the 2020 End-of-Year Donor List and noticed that your name was MISSING.

We assured the President that YOU are one of his most LOYAL supporters, and that we would reach out to ensure you did not miss this opportunity to help us CRUSH our FINAL fundraising deadline of the year.

This is from yesterday - I really feel Trump is running:

CHINA OWES AMERICA $10 TRILLION FOR THE CHINA VIRUS PAY UP, CHINA

China must pay for what they’ve done.

EVERYONE, even the so-called “enemy,” is beginning to say that I was right about the China Virus coming from the Wuhan Lab. I’ve known this all along, and now the rest of the world is just starting to catch up.

Bottom line: China should pay Ten Trillion Dollars to America, and the World, for the death and destruction they have caused. Period.

We all know Sleepy Joe Biden is WEAK on China - he can’t be trusted to get the job done. That’s why I’m calling on our STRONGEST supporters right now to stand with me and DEMAND China pay for what they did.

I’m reviewing a list of all Patriots who publicly stand with me during this time. Make sure I see your name.


I “won” some Trump “Save America” pint glasses, if I donate. 
And if you donate and aren’t careful, the automatically checked boxes will make you pay even more. 
You associate with Trump, and it winds up costing you a lot for a cheap piece of glass. 


Today - Eric AND Don Jr sent a message:

It’s so important that we’re BOTH emailing you.

Our father has done so much for this great Country, and we know it would mean so much to him to see YOUR NAME on his Birthday Card. Time is RUNNING OUT to sign it, but because you’ve always been a TOP supporter, we’re saving a spot on the card just for YOU.

When you sign the card, you can even leave a short, personalized message for him to read. He’s going to love it!

 and notice the beer in the pint. It's "real" beer for "True Patriots."  Probably Coors Light.  Maybe Bud Light.

you wouldn't catch any "True Patriots" drinking some kind of IPA or sour ale brewed in some unAmerican place like Brooklyn.


I might not take the survey based on one of the questions. 


Don Jr. is still my friend, at least. 


You know this thread is actually very informative. Unlike the ongoing saga of who said what in the rose garden, and who was nodding while melania was having an allergic reaction to roses.
It is a peek inside the Trump modus operandi, which seems to be a criminal organization. Same tactics as the Nigerian scammers...

 it's scary to consider the mindsets of people who actually donate in response to these emails.

 They're the same people who buy stuff advertised on TV because the offer is only good for the next hour. 


Damn, this feels good.


DaveSchmidt said:

 maybe you enjoy people being swindled. But I don't. Seeing the absurdity of the messaging doesn't mean celebrating that it's being used to con people. 


That isn’t it. You guys feeling superior to others allows me to feel superior to you. It’s practically a virtuous circle.


DaveSchmidt said:

 so we can't criticize morons?


and not just any morons mind you, but the ones that provide sustenance to one of the most vile persons on the planet.


DaveSchmidt said:

I already knew that you're superior to me. 

But in this case your assumption is off. My emotion is annoyance with the Trump Org preying on people vulnerable to being scammed. I think we can be fairly sure they honed their messaging through A/B testing and other means for maximum response.


The language in the emails also shows the difference between Dems and Repubs.  Repubs in general can be perceived as mean and aggressive.  Such as the Trump insults - etc.  Whereas Dems can be too subtle and polite.

You can see this difference in how they ask for money.  Dems will say "please" or "if you can spare".  Repubs will threaten if you don't donate - we will lose the country to socialists.  They will define their donors as patriots and good Americans.  Or they will say - Donald Trump has been reviewing your record and has noticed that you haven't donated.

From Donald:

My team just informed me that you STILL haven’t contributed to our movement yet. Take a look for yourself:

Repubs also want to sell you something with the pressure that if you don't act now - they will be gone.  Yesterday - the "American Made Baseball" cap is almost sold out - title of this email is "Low stock Alert".  Amazing that they have any merchandise made outside of China.  You can also get Josh Hawley's book for a $75 donation.  Conservative books are very popular.  I can't think of the Dems using this tactic.

Other tactics - one hour left to get into a special kinda club - VIP Status or Official Member of the GOP Group Chat or Your sustaining Membership is expiring.  Last July Lara Trump asked me to join the Trump 100 ClubMy husband, Eric, joined, Don Jr. joined, and so did Alex from Wisconsin! We’re just waiting on you now, Jamie.

They also have many promos - contribute now and you will be entered in a chance to meet T****

 it's this. 

I have contempt for these con artists. Not their marks. 

And if it makes me judgmental to have contempt for charlatans, so be it. 


nohero said:

 I would check Socialist and see if they would accept my contribution of $1.00. 


Imagine if NPR or PBS used those type of tactics


drummerboy said:

 Yes. The problem with this is, how can you or anyone else make them see that they are being conned. We can’t have an intervention, like some families do. That’s why it’s scary because it eventually affects society as a whole. 
I have no idea how to get through to them. 


Pretty to what nohero posted before - how dumb are these donors - spending $55 for free stuff?

It's another very common tactic.  Again - Biden and Dems don't do this.


*I got this at 9:26 tonight - I wonder what time they're giving him this card - it's amazing that I can still get my name at the top of it!

---------------------------------------------------
We’re planning a BIG surprise for President Trump’s birthday on June 14th, and we need your help.

It’s going to be a HUGE birthday card filled with over 2 MILLION signatures and heartfelt messages written by the American People.

You’re one of President Trump’s TOP supporters, so we wanted to make sure that you had a chance to sign his Official Birthday Card.

BONUS: If you sign in the next 15 minutes, we’ll make sure your name is at the TOP of President Trump’s card!


The straight-across printing on the curved surfaces of the pint glasses and coffee mug beguiles me.


maybe it's some kind of x-ahedron.


Dang, they’re on to my lack of cooperation. 


They’re relentless today. 
I hope I can resist.
