President Trump might be plunging in the polls… but he’s still raising a ton of money.
The RNC and the Trump campaign announced on Wednesday that they had raised a record $266 million in the second quarter of 2020.
What’s more, nearly half of that haul–$131 million–came in June alone, a month where the President’s poll numbers began falling amid the Black Lives Matter protests.
The second quarter also nearly doubles the first quarter fundraising haul.
In the first quarter of 2020, the campaign and the RNC raise $155 million–$111 million less than the second quarter.
President Trump’s campaign currently has a gigantic $295 million–far more than his opponent, Joe Biden.
RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel took a victory lap on social media, writing:
“After yet another haul of record-breaking support, the voters are speaking loud and clear – they support President Trump. As Joe Biden remains hidden in his basement, President Trump is leading this country to a Great American Comeback that will reignite our economy, restore law and order, and usher in a new era of strength.”
Kimberly Guilfoyle, the National Chair for the Trump Victory Finance Committee, also weighed in:
“The enthusiasm for President Trump’s re-election continues to be reflected by the campaign’s historic fundraising hauls. Over the past three months, Trump Victory Finance Committee, in concert with the Republican National Committee, spearheaded an innovative approach to digital fundraising that allowed the campaign to continue engaging donors and bundlers in a way never before seen in politics.”
