Trump Campaign, GOP Raises Massive $60M Amid Impeachment Trial
Previous surge in new donors give Trump Campaign a boost
President Donald Trump's re-election campaign and the Republican Party raised over $60 million in January, amid the highly publicized imepachment trial.
The Trump campaign, its approved fundraising committees (Trump Victory 2020 and Trump Make America Great Again Committee), and the Republican National Committee confirmed they had raised $60.6 million combined in January, with over $200 million cash on hand.
According to the Associated Press:
“The Republican National Committee and President Donald Trump’s campaign have raised more than $525 million since the start of 2019 together with two joint-fundraising committees.”
RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel stated:
“We already have 500,000 volunteers trained and activated, and this record-breaking support is helping us grow our grassroots army even more.
Trump 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale stated:
“The Democrats’ shameful impeachment hoax and dumpster fire primary process have only contributed to this record-breaking financial support for President Trump’s re-election."
“With President Trump’s accomplishments, our massive data and ground operations, and our strong fundraising numbers, this campaign is going to be unstoppable in 2020,” he added.
In October last year, senior officials for Trump's reelection campaign said the Democrats' impeachment push led to a surge in new donors and increased rally attendance.

At the time an official from Trump's 2020 team suggested impeachment may be backfiring on the Democrats:
These rallies seem to have gotten bigger," the official said.
'With this second witch hunt, this ridiculous talk of impeachment ... I think it's getting more people off the sidelines."
"It's not something people outside D.C. want."
“The more Democrats smear President Trump, the more enthusiasm we see for him and his many accomplishments,” RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said in a statement.
“We already have 500,000 volunteers trained and activated, and this record-breaking support is helping us grow our grassroots army even more.”
