Donald Trump's campaign on Wednesday celebrated an $80-million fundraising haul in July and touted its strength among small donors.

The campaign estimated it raised $64 million in digital and direct-mail operations with the Republican National Committee.

Growth in smaller-dollar donations "shows the broad-based support of over 1 million donors across America," said Steven Mnuchin, the Trump campaign's finance director.

Trump told supporters at a rally in Ohio on Monday that his campaign had raised $35.8 million in July, and that the joint fundraising efforts were still being tallied.

Trump once dismissed the need to raise funds, saying he would finance his campaign with or without the Republican Party's help.

The Republican nominee's fundraising totals have consistently lagged behind Hillary Clinton's. Her campaign's joint fundraising operation with the Democratic National Committee raised $90 million last month
