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."

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.
