The Republican National Committee (RNC) has dismissed a cease-and-desist letter from Donald Trump’s attorney asking the GOP to stop using the former president’s name in their fundraising efforts.

Responding to Trump’s lawyer, Alex Cannon, RNC chief counsel Justin Riemer said that the committee “has every right” to use Trump’s name to make money.

Mr. Riemer said that the committee “has every right to refer to public figures as it engages in core, First Amendment-protected political speech, and it will continue to do so in pursuit of these common goals.”

The response comes after Trump’s counsel sent a cease-and-desist letter to Republican National Committee, the National Republican Congressional Committee, and the National Republican Senatorial Committee last week. The three units raise the most money within the GOP for campaigning.

Trump’s letter said that the RNC and the congressional campaign arms must “immediately cease and desist the unauthorized use of President Donald J. Trump’s name, image and/or likeness in all fundraising, persuasion, and/or issue speech.”

A Trump advisor told Politico that Trump was enraged that his name and likeness had been used to raise money for organizations that would then help reelect Republican members of Congress who voted to impeach him.
