Now Donald Trump is also raising boatloads of money for himself and the GOP? What will the #NeverTrump folks complain about now? I am sure they will find something!
Will the astonishing amount be enough to silence the recent critics who declared just last month Donald Trump was not raising the kind of cash needed to defeat Hillary Clinton?
While those complaints were being leveled, Trump was raising a lot of cash for his campaign and the GOP. LOTS AND LOTS of cash.
From Washington Post:
Donald Trump raised more than $26 million through online and mail solicitations in June and another $25 million at events with the Republican National Committee, his campaign announced Wednesday, a hefty haul that his allies hope will put to rest anxieties in the party about his fundraising prowess.
The combined $51 million falls short of the $68.5 million that Democratic contender Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party collected in June, which included $40.5 million she raised directly for her campaign. But it was the biggest monthly take by far for the presumptive GOP presidential nominee, who did not begin to hold fundraising events until late May. And it suggests Trump has the ability to quickly inject large sums of money into his campaign coffers by tapping into the fervor of his supporters.
Much of the campaign’s money appears to have come in during the final 10 days of the month, when Trump’s operation began aggressively soliciting money online for the first time. The Trump campaign announced Wednesday that more than 400,000 supporters made donations in June, with more than $3 million coming in just one day. That indicates that the billionaire will be able to post far larger totals in the coming months if he continues to actively urge his backers to give.
Aides said the pace of donations has continued in July and they believe Trump could build the kind of online fundraising juggernaut that drove Sen. Bernie Sanders’s Democratic nomination bid.
But, let’s put it in real perspective. Hillary Clinton raised $40 million. So there you go Fortune. Put that in your pipe and smoke it.
