“There’s nothing we can do to stop them,” said America First spokeswoman Kelly Sadler to Politico. America First (America First Action/America First Policies) is the only super PAC authorized by Trump, Politico reports. “This is a problem for the campaign, as well as us, as well as for the RNC.”
Trump’s campaign condemned the groups, saying that they confuse voters.
“President Trump’s campaign condemns any organization that deceptively uses the President’s name, likeness, trademarks, or branding and confuses voters,” the Trump campaign said in a statement to Politico. “There is no excuse for any group, including ones run by people who claim to be part of our ‘coalition,’ to suggest they directly support President Trump’s reelection or any other candidates. We encourage the appropriate authorities to investigate all alleged scam groups for potential illegal activities.”
The Trump campaign has also sent letters to the Federal Election Commission and made public statements demanding that all of these groups cease operating except America First.
The Trump campaign did not respond to a request for comment from the Daily Caller News Foundation.
