The Hill reports:
Former President Trump on Monday said he is not using any campaign funding to construct a new plane. In a phone interview, Trump took issue with an article by The Hill over the weekend that cited a fundraising email his political action committee recently sent out.
“The story was incorrect,” Trump told The Hill. “I already have a plane, the same one I used on the 2016 campaign.” Pressed on why the fundraising email that mentioned his plane asked for donations, Trump responded, “I don’t know. I never saw the email [before it went out].”
“Ridiculous.” Trump said he does not know why the email asked for donations. https://t.co/2xFFu6I8cT
