Former President Donald Trump was met with large crowds of Trump supporters and boaters during his visit to the deep blue state of California.

Event tickets reportedly ranged from $3,300 for the lunch reception to $6,600 per couple. A photo opportunity was priced at $35,000, or $75,000 for fundraisers. Membership on the roundtable host committee was $100,000 per person, according to the website for the Republican Party of Orange County.

Several boats in Newport Beach were seen flying the American flag, as well as the Trump flag.

Video footage posted to X appeared to show the crowd of Trump supporters in Newport Beach wrapping around several blocks.

The fundraiser at the Word’s home in Newport Beach comes as the former president has been campaigning in California for several days. During a fundraiser on Thursday at the home of entrepreneur David Sacks in Silicon Valley, Trump raised $12 million.

On Friday, Trump also held a fundraiser in Beverly Hills at the home of Lee Samson, who is a board member for the Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) and a member of the Republican National Committee, KTLA5 reported.

Trump’s visit to California follows his conviction on 34 counts of falsifying business records in the first-degree concerning payments made to adult entertainment star Stormy Daniels during the 2016 presidential election.
