A new fundraising group -– boasting Donald Trump’s campaign slogan -– got up and running last week. There’s just one question: what’s it doing for Trump?

The “Make America Great Again” Super PAC, which echoes the mogul’s campaign motto, filed start-up paperwork with the Federal Election Commission last week. But it’s not clear if it is connected to Trump.
The group’s treasurer and lawyer –- the only two people named on the FEC paperwork -– did not respond to requests for comment by ABC News.
The address listed for the organization on 51st Street in Manhattan is shared by a UPS Store.
Multiple calls to a phone number listed on the group’s website went straight to a voicemail box and a message to a generic “info” e-mail address went unreturned.
And Trump’s campaign didn’t offer much information about the new fundraising group.
“Given Mr. Trump's top-tier status in recent polls, it is not surprising that someone has put together a Super PAC to support Donald J. Trump for President,” a campaign rep told ABC News. “We hope that they will invite us to attend some of their events."
Super PACs can raise unlimited dollars but may not “coordinate” with campaigns. Still, many candidates unofficially sanction Super PAC organizations that support them.
But Trump has insisted since the beginning of his campaign that he doesn’t need to raise any funds.
“I’m using my own money,” he said in his announcement speech. “I’m not using the lobbyists. I’m not using donors. I don’t care. I’m really rich.”
The organization’s website says (in all caps) that its mission is “educating voters throughout our country about issues that matter.”
Trump has received nonstop media attention for the three weeks he’s been in the race, predominantly over remarks about Mexican immigrants being "rapists" and "drug dealers."
