Donald Trump's accelerated fundraising in June pulled in more than $26 million, his campaign announced Wednesday, marking a rebound from the presumptive GOP nominee's anemic haul the previous month.

Trump raised an additional $25 million jointly with the Republican National Committee. The real estate mogul contributed $3.8 million himself.

"We just started our fundraising efforts in the last week of May, and we are extremely pleased with the broad-based support in the last five weeks for the Trump Campaign and Trump Victory," Steven Mnuchin, the campaign's finance chair, said in a statement.

Trump continues to be outpaced in the money chase by Democratic rival Hillary Clinton, who raised $68.5 million for her campaign and the Democratic National Committee in June.

But his improved financial showing in June should placate some Republicans who were alarmed by his dismal fundraising effort in May; Trump brought in just $3 million in contributions and ended the month with a paltry $1.3 million on hand.

Since then, Trump has ramped up his efforts, attending high-dollar fundraisers and aggressively stepping up online solicitations for donations. According to his campaign, more than 400,000 people donated in June, the vast majority of whom gave less than $200.
