Irish Americans for Trump will hear from President Trump at a  virtual campaign fundraiser says top fundraiser Kimberly Guilfoyle

President Trump is expected to speak during a virtual campaign fundraiser scheduled for Tuesday, July 21, according to an email blast sent to the Irish Americans for Trump membership on July 16.

Recent polls have shown a slippage in support among White Catholics for Trump and he is keen to address it say aides.

The email was signed by Kimberly Guilfoyle, who currently serves as the National Chair, Trump Victory Finance Committee (TVFC), which describes itself as a "nationwide army of volunteer fundraisers playing a pivotal role to ensure President Trump’s campaign and the Republican Party have the most far-reaching ground game in the history of presidential politics."

Guilfoyle, who is currently dating President Trump's oldest son, Donald Trump, Jr, has strong Irish roots - her father is a native of Co Clare, and she spent plenty of time in Ireland growing up.
