MAGAsota. Make America Great Again Minnesota – sounds great, doesn’t it? These supporters of President Trump appear to be working on behalf of the President’s reelection bid but there’s just one problem: these scammers aren’t affiliated with the official campaign in any way, shape or form.

The MAGAsota folks are diverting valuable volunteer time to an effort that will have a marginal effect on the actual election. Remember, Minnesota has not voted for a Republican Presidential candidate since 1972 so it will take everyone “rowing the boat” in the same direction. The Trump campaign is working with the Republican National Committee (RNC), the Minnesota Republican Party, the National Republican Campaign Committee (NRCC) and the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) in a coordinated effort to identify and turn out voters for President Trump and all Republican candidates on the ballot in 2020. There has never been a more robust effort in the state of Minnesota. Efforts like MAGAsota look good on the surface but without coordination with the real campaigns, ultimately result in a waste of valuable volunteer time.

A similar scam effort that looks like it’s helping President Trump in Minnesota is the Trump Club of Minnesota. The Trump Club is a Facebook page run by Ben Dorr and his “team.” Again, there is no official affiliation between this fake Facebook group and the Trump campaign in Minnesota or nationally. It is a scam using the popularity of the President to build a following that will ultimately send them money.

Anyone interested in helping re-elect President Trump should go to their official website.
