Trump Campaign Rakes in Massive Cash, Dominating Dems

The Trump 2020 campaign raised $30 million in its first quarter of the year, beating all Democrat rivals attempting to win the White House. 

"Donald J. Trump for President, Inc. and the Republican National Committee announced a massive fundraising haul for Q1 2019, and will report a combined $76.1 million haul to the U.S. Federal Election Commission. Together, the Campaign, the RNC, and the joint fundraising committees have a striking $82 million cash on hand," the campaign released in a statement. "Independently, the Trump Campaign now has approximately 21 times more ash on hand than the Obama campaign had at this point in the re-election cycle. The Campaign took in $30.3 million overall in the first quarter and now has $40.8 million cash on hand." 

During her tenure at the RNC, Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel has been a fundraising machine. 

Not only is President Trump in good shape compared to former President Barack Obama, who was elected twice, he's far outpacing Democrats fighting for definition and relevancy in a crowded primary. The DNC is still financially devastated from 2016 and at least $5 million in debt going into the 2020 cycle.
