WASHINGTON — The Teamsters union’s political action committee donated $45,000 to the Republican National Committee’s convention fund in January, according to federal election commission disclosures.


The Teamsters PAC’s donations overwhelmingly go toward Democrats, but the $45,000 donation marks the first significant donation to the RNC in years. The fund is specifically designated for the convention rather than general usage.


The donation to the RNC was made on Jan. 25, according to an FEC filing. Trump met with the Teamsters Union days later. Trump had previously met in early January with Teamsters General President Sean M. O’Brien, the union posted on X.


Neither Trump’s campaign nor the RNC immediately responded to NBC News’ requests for comment.
