WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump is set to raise more than $15 million this week during a two-day California fundraising swing.
A Republican official familiar with the plans says Trump will raise $3 million Tuesday at a lunch in the Bay Area and $5 million at a dinner that evening in Beverly Hills at the home of real estate developer Geoffrey Palmer.
GEENARAIN: “Thank you for being here, Mr. Vice President. Growing up as a child in Guyana, my grandfather used to tell the story that God made the United States. He told us about the wonders and freedoms in this country. I live my life striving to become an American citizen and I’m proud to have achieved that goal. As president, what will you do the future grandfathers will continue to share their stories of our great nation?”
BIDEN: “I’ve been to Ghana, I’ve been all through Africa.”
.@VP Pence: “I heard my predecessor said, he was answering a question about his years in the White House, he said, ‘I’m the Vice President of the United States.’ So, let me be clear, I am the Vice President of the United States.”— CSPAN (@cspan) September 13, 2019

Mike Pence poked fun at predecessor Joe Biden Friday for calling himself the vice president of the United States.
Speaking at the House Republican retreat in Baltimore, Pence said he heard Biden had referred to himself as the “vice president” during the Democratic debate in Houston Thursday night. Biden, of course, served as No. 2 under former President Barack Obama.
The usually straight-laced Pence said, “Let me be clear: I am the vice president of the United States of America.”
