Trump Campaign: 'Impeachment Push' Has Led to a 'Surge of New Donors'
Senior officials suggest impeachment is backfiring on Democrats
Senior officials for President Donald Trump's reelection campaign have said the Democrats' impeachment push has led to a surge in new donors and increased rally attendance.
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."
"In the last couple weeks, we picked up 50,000 new donors. Fifty thousand — I mean, that's unheard of. And a lot of these people are not people who have given to campaigns in the past, a lot of these people are not people who have volunteered for campaigns in the past," the official said.
"If I was on the other side, I would think that would be a loud message coming from people outside D.C., everyday Americans who are tired of these witch hunts."
Another senior Trump campaign official highlighted the Republican National Committee's ongoing $2.3 million ad buy targeting freshman House Democrats, asserting it reflected confidence in public opposition to impeachment.
Campaign officials, speaking on a conference call, highlighted efforts to hold states Trump won in 2016 while flipping Minnesota, New Hampshire, and New Mexico.
The Trump campaign said Tuesday the Ukraine controversy is a continuation of Democrats unjustly persecuting the president.
"The Democrats since the very beginning, since actually before the time where he took the oath of office, began plotting how to get rid of him," one official said.
"At first they had the Russia hoax. Of course, that fell apart... and now they've moved on to this next wave of ideas for how they are going to impeach and remove the president."
"What the Democrats are trying to do with this very partisan approach to removing a duly elected president of the United States makes a lot of people angry in the country," the official said.
"A lot of what we're seeing in the states is organic. I think that just goes to show you how upset voters are."

Last week, Trump supporters announced a massive march at the nation’s capital on October 17 for the 'March for Trump,' against impeachment.
Tea Party activist and founder of Women for America First, Amy Kremer, said:
“We are coming to Washington to support our president — to stand with him through this impeachment charade."
“[Democrats are] trying to subvert the will of the people and overturn the vote, and people are as mad as hell about it,” Kremer said, adding, “It absolutely is a partisan witch hunt and the American people can see right through it.”
