According to news reports, Trump sent cease and desist orders to Republican party for using his name

Trump sent cease and desist orders to any Republican Fundraising Committee, Group, and the Republican Party to stop his name or likeness in Fundraising capacity.

Two things signals flags for his future.

1. He will not be running under the Republican Party; behaps a third party.

2. He will use his name as an income source.

Either way, this is the beginning of the end of the Republican Party. The BIG SPLIT!

The former Tea Partiers sided with the Republicans and took back control of both houses in 2010. They maintained that hold for 8 years and slowly reduced to the 33 percent. If they SPLIT from the Republican party, Democrats will edge out from close elections in a three party system.

Am I wrong on my theory?

1. Honestly . . .

I think he is at his last straw. I do smell justice on behalf of the sane and semi-sane American people and all those who suffered and continue to suffer, and for all those who lost their lives due to COVID19. And that only mentions a few s**t*y things t-rump and the republican party has done to the USA in the past 4 years.

2. If Republicans legally have to pay Trump for his endorsements,

then they better have Plan B ready: to move ahead without him.

OTOH, if Trump initiates attacks on non-Trumpers, I believe they can invoke his name with impunity in answering his missives.

4. I wonder if the party will send him a letter asking him not to use the Republican Party name

A few days ago, he called Rove a RINO. He also still plans to support challengers to people whom he deems RINOs. Clearly, Trump wants to continue to have an effect on the party. .
If I were involved in party management, I would not allow him to have it both ways -- where he can wrap himself in the Party's name but the Party can't use his name,

6. Questions:

1. Can they use his name without person? Do they need permission?

2. Is there a way to
Legally pay him a percentage of campaign funds? Not sure.

7. I've never seen anything like this before....


He is an ex POTUS, his name is found in hundreds of articles, newspapers every day, I donít think he can do this.

9. Me, either

But if he were anyone else it wouldnít matter. His entire ďempireĒ and facade of success is based solely on his name and brand. I can understand why heís asking this

11. He is like a mob boss who is going to wipe out anyone who is on his territory.

His business was about name and brand, and he will not let anyone else use his name as a source of revenue. He doesn't understand or care about the political ramifications.

8. We can assist them with their split by demonstrating that yes, government does work....

and it works on their behalf.

Their party has been divided for decades between the old-line anti-tax wealthy backbone group and the new herds they brought into the fold to get votes by touting populist stuff like immigration and abortion. That system was kept glued together only by lies and deception and started increasingly falling apart with tRump's radicalism.

I doubt if a three-party system would work in the U.S. long-term because of the assets Republicans have free access to (money and media). Their ultra-wealthy core will always mentally and emotionally bribe any divisions back into the fold come election day.

I'm just glad they didn't send notice to the Democratic Party and I can still safely call it the Trump Virus, Trump Tax Increase, Trump War on Refugees, etc......


KY.........

13. Actually, the media should run with this lol...

Get every single Republican they can to say his name, while touting their own re elections, and then send trump all the paperwork and clips necessary to sue their campaigns bankrupt.

One way or another, the GOP will tie that anchor to their own feet before they throw it overboard lol.

14. The GOP should counteroffer:


Whenever the name of Trump is mentioned, people must say or write "Glory be upon him"

16. Broadly speaking, yes you are

Point 1. Trump will NOT form a third party. Itís too expensive and too much work.

Point 2. While Trump DOES want to make money off his name, itís not a strategic think (nothing Trump has ever done has been strategic). Heís impulsively reacting to the idea that someone is making money off his name without giving him a cut.
