The Trump Organization sent a “cease and desist” letter to the conservative Super PAC “Club For Growth” demanding they stop running this political attack ad against Trump or face “a multi-million dollar lawsuit.”
Donald Trump’s attorney Alan Garten wrote a letter to the Club For Growth and stated that the group’s ad that slammed Trump for supporting higher taxes, national health care and bailing out Wall Street is “not only completely disingenuous, but replete with outright lies, false, defamatory, and destructive statements and downright fabrications.” See the full text of the letter:
It appears that Club For Growth disdain for Trump and firing off their offensive ad was a result of Trump refusing to donate money to this Super PAC.
The president of the pathetic Club For Growth came to my office in N.Y.C. and asked for a ridiculous $1,000,000 contribution. I said no way!

When I intelligently turned down The Club For Growth crazy request for $1,000,000, they got nasty.What a waste of money that would have been — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 2, 2015
