LOS ANGELES -- President Donald Trump will headline a high-dollar fundraiser for his re-election campaign when he visits California next week for the first time in his presidency, according to an invitation obtained by the Los Angeles Times.

Donors will contribute up to $250,000 each to Trump's campaign and various Republican National Committee accounts to attend the Tuesday evening event at an undisclosed location in Beverly Hills.

The top ticket price includes a roundtable, photo opportunity and dinner. The cheapest ticket, which is dinner only, costs $35,000 for an individual and $50,000 for a couple.

The fundraiser is being hosted by Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, national finance chairman Todd Ricketts and deputy national finance chairman Elliott Broidy.

Earlier in the day, the president will inspect border wall prototypes in San Diego.

The visit is Trump's first to California since becoming president. His administration and the state's Democratic leadership have repeatedly clashed over immigration, environmental, marijuana and other policies. This week, the Department of Justice sued California over state laws that offer protections for illegal immigrants.
