Trump Raises Over $20M in First-Ever Virtual Fundraiser
'This is a great day for the president,' chair of the Trump Victory Finance Committee said
President Donald Trump has raised over $20 million from 300,000 individual donors in his campaign's first-ever virtual fundraiser on Tuesday.
Kimberly Guilfoyle, the national chair of the Trump Victory Finance Committee, said it was a "great day" for Trump, showing robust support for the president.
“This is a great day for the president and for the country showing the robust enthusiasm for President Donald Trump,” Guilfoyle told Breitbart.
“They want four more years," she added.
"We had over 300,000 people log on for our event tonight to donate to the president," Guilfoyle continued.
"We raised over $20 million in the first-ever of its kind virtual Zoom event.”
The event included virtual features like a roundtable, which Trump took part in every development.
“This shows the momentum that the president has that everyday Americans are choosing President Donald Trump,” Guilfoyle said.
“The silent majority is speaking up with a willingness and a desire to vote for four more years on Nov. 3.”
Don Trump Jnr. tweeted:
"Congratulations @kimguilfoyle on an incredible day."

The event allowed ordinary Americans to access directly in a virtual format to the president.
“Everyday Americans who are forgotten no more under President Donald Trump were able to log on and participate with the president,” Guilfoyle said.
“This is a great day for Americans.”
Although Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has raised significant sums for his online events, he failed to beat Trump's.
As NPR reported last month, Biden's virtual fundraiser only managed to raise $7.6 million, even with the full support of former President Barack Obama.
Over 175,000 people donated to the event, which billed it as a grassroots fundraiser, though press access was limited, and no video stream was made public, unlike Trump's.
And unlike Biden, Trump still has a significant cash-on-hand advantage.
In June, Trump ended with $295 million in the bank.
