The Donald J. Trump Campaign for President on Wednesday announced a massive fundraising total of $51 million, with more than 94 percent of the donors contributing $200 or less.
“The first email solicitation, which contained an unprecedented $2 million match from Donald J. Trump, exceeded our goal, collecting over $3 million in contributions in one day,” the campaign said. “Donald J. Trump personally contributed $3.8 million to the campaign this month which brings total contributions to $55 million. The results from this month show the enthusiastic movement the campaign has created. People want to invest in a better future for America and Make America Great Again! The campaign very much appreciates the broad support.”
The cash haul puts him in the same neighborhood as Hillary Clinton, who announced she had pulled in $70 million for her campaign and other Democrats.
“We just started our fundraising efforts in the last week of May and we are extremely pleased with the broad-based support in the last five weeks for the Trump Campaign and Trump Victory. We want to thank our many volunteers and contributors that are committed to electing Donald J. Trump as President in November,” said campign finance chairman Steven Mnuchin.
