President Trump Raises $20 Million in First Ever Virtual Fundraiser
President Donald Trump is off to a good start on the virtual campaign trail.
According to Breitbart:
President Donald Trump raised an eye-popping $20 million on Tuesday night in his first-ever virtual fundraiser, from a total of more than 300,000 individual donors who participated.
“This is a great day for the president and for the country showing the robust enthusiasm for President Donald Trump,” Kimberly Guilfoyle, the national chair of the Trump Victory Finance Committee, told Breitbart News on Tuesday evening. “They want four more years. We had over 300,000 people log on for our event tonight to donate to the president. We raised over $20 million in the first-ever of its kind virtual Zoom event.”
Pulling in $20 million in a single fundraiser is stunning for any candidate, especially in the age of virtual events during the coronavirus pandemic.
Trump and the RNC raised a record $131 million in June, more than any single month during the 2016 campaign. That closed out the second quarter with $266 million raised, representing a 71% increase in fundraising over the first quarter of the year.
That brought total money raised for Trump’s reelection to $947 million over the past two years, $295 million of which the campaign still has as cash on hand.
