The Trump campaign is blasting past any previous fundraising records as they start off 2020 with a bang, bringing in more than a whopping $60 million in January alone. You can thank the Democrats’ failed impeachment for that.
The Associated Press reports that the Trump campaign also has more than $200 million cash on hand, which combined with the January fundraising numbers, represents double that which former President Barrack Obama had at the same point in 2012 when he was re-elected.
AP added, “The Republican National Committee and President Donald Trump’s campaign have raised more than $525 million since the start of 2019 together with two joint-fundraising committees.”
Trump’s campaign manager, Brad Parscale, gave his explanation for the impressive number of donations, arguing that Democrats’ “shameful impeachment hoax and dumpster fire primary process” have contributed to the “record-breaking financial support,” and adding, “With President Trump’s accomplishments, our massive data and ground operations and our strong fundraising numbers, this campaign is going to be unstoppable in 2020.”
AP added, “The pro-Trump effort said it has gained more than 1 million new digital and direct mail donors since Democrats launched their push to impeach Trump in September 2019.”
RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel stated, “The more Democrats smear President Trump, the more enthusiasm we see for him and his many accomplishments, we already have 500,000 volunteers trained and activated, and this record-breaking support is helping us grow our grassroots army even more.”
The Daily Wire reported at the beginning of January that Trump had garnered enormous funds in the fourth quarter of 2019:
“As reported by The Washington Times, Trump’s reelection campaign reported a stunning $46 million haul in the last quarter and says they’ve now got nearly $103 million on hand. The Q4 total is the campaign’s “best-ever haul,” the outlet notes. “The quarterly amount is money raised by the Trump campaign alone and doesn’t include funds from the Republican National Committee or any authorized joint fundraising committees,” The Washington Times points out.
The huge fundraising haul, the campaign suggests, comes in part because of rather than despite the Democrats’ impeachment campaign. “Democrats and the media have been in a sham impeachment frenzy, and the president’s campaign only got bigger and stronger with our best fundraising quarter this cycle,” said Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale. “The president’s war chest and grassroots army make his reelection campaign an unstoppable juggernaut.”
However, this is not just a 2020 phenomenon. In mid-October, The Daily Wire also noted that Trump had raised more money than any other president at that point in their campaign:
“Politico reports that Trump and the Republican National Coalition have raised more than $300 million, and the President alone has $158 million cash on hand to kick off his re-election bid, more than any other sitting president at this point in his campaign.
The numbers have Democrats worried, and at least one strategist told the Washington, D.C., based news outlet that, “[t]he resources he has will be put to work anywhere and everywhere that he feels like he can scare up electoral votes, and Democrats will never catch up. It’s just too much money.”
Delusional Democrat Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said earlier this week that he believes impeachment has “been a positive” for Democrats.
“It’s been a positive for us,” Schumer said, adding that Democratic “data shows every one of their [Republican] Senate candidates has had problems.”
We’ll see if Schumer still feels that way come November when fired up Trump supporters flock to the voting booths to cover the country in red.
