As former U.S. President Donald Trump’s involvement in the Jan. 6 insurrection is being investigated by Congress, an email sent by Trump, Jr. has gone around on Tuesday which asks for a donation in exchange for being able to sign his father’s birthday card.

The email, which was first sent on June 14, reportedly requests the potential donor a financial donation of at least $1 in exchange for being able to greet the former President and sign an online, official birthday card made by his fundraising committee, according to the Daily Beast.

“My father has done so much for this great Country, and I know it would mean so much to him to see YOUR NAME on his OFFICIAL Birthday Card,” Trump, Jr. reportedly wrote.

The donation, which can range from $1 to more than $2,500, also contained a message giving the people who received the email “Early Access” in spite of it coming out of his birthday, as well as a message that asks them to decide quickly regarding the signature lest someone else gets their spot, Business Insider reported.

“HURRY — there's not much time left. I can only save your spot for 20 MINUTES,” the email said.

Using these fundraising techniques, Donald Trump’s campaign has been able to raise more than $390 million in donations since leaving office. A lot of the funds have been geared towards paying for his 2020 Presidential elections expenses, but some of them are being used to mount Trump’s campaign for 2024.

As the U.S. Congress investigates Trump’s involvement in the Jan. 6 insurrection attempt, they have revealed that Trump’s campaign team would send up to 25 emails a day to potential donors asking for funds, and that he was able to raise over $250 million in donations from his base during that time.

Trump has been “extremely disciplined in grifting and in trying to use the presidency to make money,” New York University historian Ruth Ben-Ghiat said.

“His aims were autocratic in that he wanted to turn public office into a vessel of making money for himself; to have private profit off of public office,” she continued.
