Former president Donald Trump will be in the Bluegrass today. He is attending a fundraising event hosted by Joe and Kelly Craft in Lexington.

Tickets for the fundraiser start at $25-thousand per couple and go as high as $844,600.

The event is also being put on by the fundraising group Trump 47 and the former president's Save America PAC. The PAC has spent more than $50 million last year footing Trump’s various legal bills.

The former president, and presumptive GOP presidential candidate is currently facing trial on 34 felony counts over allegations that he falsified business records to conceal a hush-money payment to an adult film actress before the 2016 election.
