RNC President Ronna McDaniel has come under pressure from some members to show more independence from Trump, but the majority of her 168 members continue to support the former president, party officials said. The party held a fundraiser in the spring at the former president’s Mar-a-Lago estate, where Trump spoke, paying the club nearly $200,000. McDaniel remains in regular contact with Trump. Her allies say Trump remains the party’s biggest fundraiser and it’s important to keep his favor.
