President Donald Trump is scheduled to make a planned seven-hour visit to the Los Angeles area Friday for a fundraising dinner for his re-election campaign.

Tickets are $15,000 for dinner, $50,000 for the opportunity to take a picture with Trump and $150,000 to participate in a roundtable discussion during the event, according to an invitation obtained by City News Service.

The fundraiser will be held at the Beverly Hills home of health care executive Lee Samson, according to TMZ. There was no immediate response to an email sent to the White House seeking confirmation of the TMZ report.

Trump is scheduled to arrive at Los Angeles International Airport aboard Air Force One in the late afternoon after viewing a newly completed section of the border wall in Calexico. He is scheduled to leave the Southland Friday night, bound for Las Vegas, where he will speak Saturday at the Republican Jewish Coalition’s Annual Leadership Meeting.

The visit will be Trump’s third to the Los Angeles area as president. He headlined a Republican National Committee fundraiser near Beverly Hills in March 2018. In November, he toured areas ravaged by the Woolsey Fire in Ventura and Los Angeles counties, then met with survivors of the mass shooting at the Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks.

Barack Obama had made 21 visits to Los Angeles and Orange counties at the similar stage of his presidency, attending fundraisers during 18 of those visits.
