Administration officials are barred from campaigning in their official capacities, according to federal law.
The Trump campaign confirmed the event to the Post. The campaign did not immediately respond to a request for further comment from The Hill.
The Post noted that Trump Victory, a joint committee that raises money for Trump’s 2020 campaign and the RNC, frequently charges five- and six-figure amounts to attend its events. The invite does not indicate the cost of tickets for the Jackson event.
Dick Cheney has reportedly expressed qualms with the Trump administration’s foreign policy initiatives. Among other things, the former vice president told Vice President Pence in March that he had issues with Trump’s views toward traditional allies such as NATO, the Post reported.
“I worry that the bottom line of that kind of an approach is we have an administration that looks a lot more like Barack Obama than Ronald Reagan,” Cheney said, according to the newspaper.
