Former US President Donald Trump is reportedly asking attendees of the upcoming Republican Midterm fundraiser at Mar-a-Lago, Florida to pay $100,000 to take a photograph with him.

The ticket prices for a private dinner at the fundraiser reportedly soars to $250,000 for a couple, according to a tweet by a New York Times reporter. The "Take Back Congress Candidate Forum," which is set for Feb. 23, is expected to tout Republican party candidates endorsed by Trump in midterm races, reported Business Insider. The $250,000 package includes a VIP seating at the forum, a private dinner and an opportunity to get clicked with Trump.

The minimum ticket price of $5,000 for a couple comes with limited access to the candidates, with increasing perks and access to the former President as prices go up. The cheapest package for the fundraiser with a photograph costs $100,000. As per an advertisement shared online, the first 10 to pay also get the option to buy a two-night stay at Mar-a-Lago.

Till the end of January, Trump has reportedly endorsed 49 candidates (35 for Congress and 14 for Senate).

Meanwhile, Trump, who recently referred to himself as "the 45th and 47th President of the United States," has been teasing the idea of running for president again in 2024. Since leaving Washington, D.C., the former President has built much of his life at Mar-a-Lago, where he often meets Republican candidates. A source recently told PEOPLE that he and his wife, Melania Trump, are "very happy to be in Palm Beach." The insider added that Trump plays golf regularly with political guys who" fly down as well as with social friends from his club."

Trump has also been in news in connection with the Jan. 6 riot investigation. The committee investigating the Capitol insurrection now has White House documents that provide new details about a phone call the former President made to Republican Representative Jim Jordan on Jan 6, 2021, reported CNN. Two sources said that Trump spoke on the phone at the White House residence with Jordan for 10 minutes on Jan. 6, 2021 morning. On the same afternoon, Jordan took to the House floor to object to the certification of President Joe Biden's Electoral College win. It was that day that Trump supporters gathered and attacked the US Capitol.

Among various things, the committee has been focusing on the run-up to the insurrection and the different ways Trump and his allies tried to overturn the election results. When Jordan was asked Friday about the White House documents, he said that he had multiple calls with Trump on the day of the attack, but could only confirm that he spoke with Trump after he left the House floor.
