Trump PACs Raise $82M in 2021; $102 Million Cash on Hand
'Commonsense conservatives were never more badly needed'
Donald Trump's political relevance has been highlighted after his political action committees raised over $100 million.
Trump wrote in a statement:
“On behalf of the millions of men and women who share my outrage and want me to continue to fight for the truth, I am grateful for your support."
Trump said his fundraising success was fueled by the “Rigged and Stolen 2020 election."
“I can’t imagine a more important time to elect good Republicans to the House and Senate,” he wrote.
“Commonsense conservatives were never more badly needed.”
Trump said the money would be used to aid candidates who supported his “America First” agenda, which include:
Support for the Second Amendment
Taking care of America’s veterans
Remaining tough on crime
“I will never stop fighting for Free and Fair Elections and to elect the right candidates,” Trump concluded.

The political action committees include the Save America PAC and the Make America Great Again PAC.
The money is used to fund Trump's daily political operations, including paying staff, travel, and political activities.
“There’s only one way to contribute to our efforts, to elect America first Republican conservatives, and in turn to make America great again,” he told supporters at CPAC in February.
“And that’s through Save America PAC and DonaldJTrump.com.”
Last month, Trump said campaign finance laws are what is standing in the way of him creating a presidential campaign.
“I can’t really because of campaign finance rules, regulations, very complicated, very stuff, and frankly very antiquated if you want to know the truth," Trump said.
"It’s ridiculous,” he said, Breitbart reported.
According to various reports, Trump told dinner guests he was planning to run in 2024.
