A Trump spokesman did not respond to a request whether Trump would attend the RNC meeting. Trump stayed at his Mar-a-Lago Resort, which is also located in Palm Beach.
With Trump considering a comeback in 2024, the committee has been careful to demonstrate neutrality as the former president is no longer in office. She invited other potential presidential candidates to her annual winter get-together earlier this month. Trump did not perform in person at the event, which happened the same week as the Capitol uprising.
No decision has been made as to where in Palm Beach the donor retreat will take place in April. But people familiar with the planning say it won’t be in Mar-a-Lago.
Withdrawal usually attracts a number of major party donors. The committee has also decided in recent years to hold its Spring Confab in Palm Beach.
