Trump sent cease and desist letters to the Republican National Committee, National Republican Congressional Campaign, and National Republican Senate Campaign, asking them to stop using his name for the likeliness of fundraising, on Friday.

An adviser to the former President said that Trump is sensitive to the use of his name and likeness for branding purposes and was irked that the three groups have supported Republican lawmakers who joined Democrats in voting to impeach him over the 6 January storming of the US Capitol by pro-Trump protesters.

Trump is using his Save America SuperPAC to raise money in part to help hand-picked Republican candidates in the 2022 congressional elections. Some of those candidates are also expected to challenge Republican incumbents.

There is an internal conflict in the republican party among the people who want to move forward with Trump and others without Trump. Many leaders of the establishment have said the future of the Republican party remains on the ProTrump base. 

Trump, now living at his Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Florida, dangled the possibility of running for president again in 2024 when he addressed a conference of conservatives last week.
