Trump campaign says it took in $105 million during 2nd quarter
President Trump’s reelection campaign said Tuesday it raised $105 million during the second fundraising quarter.
The campaign said it has a whopping $100 million in cash on hand.
Campaign manager Brad Parscale said the total is “a testament to the overwhelming support” for Trump, who formally announced his bid for reelection in June. Parscale said none of the Democrats who are competing for the right to challenge Trump in 2020 can match the president’s fundraising prowess or the level of enthusiasm for him.
The money was raised by the Trump campaign, Trump’s joint fundraising entities and the Republican National Committee.
Campaigns have until July 15 to report their fundraising totals to the Federal Election Commission, but many will release their end-of-quarter totals before then if the numbers are especially good.
