Trump’s 2020 Campaign, RNC Raise $108M in 2nd Quarter, Floors Democrats
Trump's bid to remain in the White House gets massive boost
President Donald Trump's 2020 presidential campaign and the Republican National Committee (RNC) now have a massive advantage over the Democratic contenders after raising a combined total of $108 million during the second quarter, according to reports.
Trump's bid to remain in the White House is now looking more promising following the release of the figures.
The RNC and the Trump re-election campaign are holding a total of $123.7 million in cash, according to the campaign's statement on July 15.
To give perspective, President Barrack Obama raised d $47 million for his reelection campaign in 2011, while another $38 million was raised for the Democratic National Committee, the NY Times reported at the time.
Trump's campaign manager Brad Parscale said in a statement:
“President Trump’s record of success for America is drawing unprecedented support from across the nation."
“As the Democrats continue their race to the left, Americans are responding to the President’s pledge to Keep America Great,” he added.
A total of $56.7 million was brought in the quarter by Three of President Trump’s entities.
- Donald J. Trump for President Inc
- Trump Victory
- Make America Great Again Committee
“Yet another record-shattering fundraising haul gives us a major advantage over the crowded field of Democrats as the RNC continues investing in our world-class field program and growing our incredible grassroots army,” RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said in a statement.
“As enthusiasm for this President continues to grow, these resources ensure President Trump and Republicans up and down the ballot are in a strong position to win heading into 2020.”
Jaw-dropping numbers from the 24 hours of the day @realDonaldTrump announced his re-election campaign:— Tim Murtaugh (@TimMurtaugh) June 19, 2019
$24.8 million raised.
Do the math: that’s more than a million dollars an hour for an entire day.
On top of an electric rally in Orlando, this shows huge Trump enthusiasm.
The average donation was $41.48, and over 98 percent of the donations were $200 or less, according to the campaign.
2020 Democratic presidential contenders who have announced their totals include:
- Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend: $24.8 million in the second quarter
- Former Vice President Joe Biden: $21.5 million
- Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) $19.1 million
The Trump campaign reported raising $30 million in the first quarter of 2019, surprising every Democratic in that period.
Trump also raised an eye-watering $24.8 million in less than 24 hours on the day he launched his 2020 re-election bid.
Vice President Mike Pence highlighted the fact that various Democratic candidates support socialist policies such as Medicare for All and he Green New Deal.
“Under the guise of Medicare for All and a Green New Deal, Democrats are embracing the same tired economic theories that have impoverished nations and stifled the liberties of millions over the past century. That system is socialism,” Pence said.
“What Medicare for All really means is quality health care for none,” he added.
“The only thing green about the so-called Green New Deal is how much green it’s going to cost taxpayers if these people ever pass it into law.”
