If the level of money President Donald Trump is raising is an indicator of approval and enthusiasm among Americans for his policies and performance, Making America Great Again is massively popular with campaign donors. So far, Trump has raised more money than any of the challenges for the Oval Office.
According to the Republican National Committee, $51 million was raised by them in the second quarter of 2019, and $54 million was raised by the actual Trump campaign and associated organizations for a total of $105 million that is considerably more than all Democrats are reporting they have raised.
That’s a lot of money.
The Republican National Committee funds will be used for “down ticket” elections, or offices other than the presidency. The Trump re-election campaign itself now has over $100 million to spend on all sorts of messaging and advertising, not to mention rallies and more. And that is on top of the coverage he will get simply for being president and being up for re-election in a booming economy with hundreds of thousands of jobs created since he took office.
“Our massive fundraising success is a testament to the overwhelming support for President Trump,” Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale said. “No Democrat candidate can match this level of enthusiasm or President Trump’s outstanding record of results.”
RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel stated, “The RNC’s record-breaking fundraising has allowed us to identify troves of new supporters online and continue investing in our unprecedented field program. Our grassroots army is already hard at work–putting us in prime position to re-elect President Trump and Republicans across the country.”
A grassroots army is traditionally what is needed to win elections in the United States. It is the people whose voices are meant to be heard, and it takes a lot of volunteers to get the message out, help get supporters registered to vote and assist in making rallies and more happen. With the contributions and the names of the people who support the president enough to make them, the RNC has a better shot at getting more Republicans in office to assist President Trump in his endeavors.
