Trump Super PAC Paid Melania Trump $155,000

A pro-Trump super PAC paid former President Donald Trump's wife Melania Trump $155,000 in 2021, a newly certified personal financial disclosure report from the former president revealed -- prompting attacks from some Trump critics, ABC News reported.

The super PAC, dubbed Make America Great Again, Again, in its separate Federal Election Commission filing from earlier last year, had listed the expenses to a firm called Designer's Management Agency, thus masking the true recipient of its payments to the firm.


The super PAC's filing showed two payments to the firm -- one which came on Dec. 2, 2021, in the amount of $30,000, and the next payment the following day, in the amount of $125,000.



The report also shows Melania Trump received two $250,000 payments from Log Cabin Republicans, an advocacy group of LGBTQ conservatives, and Fix CA, an organization founded by Ric Grenell, who served as Acting Director of National Intelligence in former President Trump's 2020 cabinet.

But Trump's financial disclosure shows the super PAC's payment of $155,000 on Dec. 2, 2021, directly to Melania Trump.


All the news: Business man in suit and tie smiling and reading a newspaper near the financial district.

The report, which was first reported by the New York Times, revealed the payment to Melania Trump was for a "speaking engagement." GOP presidential candidate and outspoken Trump critic Chris Christie called Trump "shameless" in response to the news.


"A billionaire using donor money to pay personal legal fees, and now paying his wife more than 2x what the average American makes just to pick some tableware," the former New Jersey governor tweeted.


Government & politics: Politicians, government officials and delegates standing in front of their country flags in a political event in the financial district.

"There’s grifting and then there’s Trump grifting. Undisputed champs." The Make America Great Again, Again super PAC has since dissolved, transferring $8.9 million to a new Trump-aligned super PAC, Make America Great Again Inc.
