Democrats have been having a rough few months since President Trump won the election in November, but after seeing the amount of money he was able to raise for re-election in a single day, they should be downright terrified.
To listen to the media, you’d think the American people view President Trump was the worst president since Jimmy Carter. However, his fundraising totals tell a much different tale.
In fact, the President was able to raise in a single day what it took Democrats a little over a week to raise in May, and we’re still three years away from the next election.
From Fox News:
President Donald Trump was whisked a few blocks from the White House to the Trump hotel on Wednesday night for his first re-election fundraiser, where he raised an estimated $10 million behind closed doors.
Some 40 months ahead of the 2020 election, the president held court for about two hours at a $35,000-per-plate donor event at the Trump International Hotel. About 300 people were expected to attend the event, which was expected to raise about $10 million, said Lindsay Jancek, a spokeswoman for the Republican National Committee.
Security was tight at the hotel, where guests in long gowns and crisp suits began arriving around 5 p.m. But the event also drew critics. The president’s motorcade was greeted by dozens of protesters, who hoisted signs with slogans like “Health care not tax cuts” and chanted “Shame! Shame!”
Ten million for a couple hours work isn’t too shabby. In fact, it shows that the GOP donor base sees how popular the President is and they’re fully backing him for his re-election bid in 2020.
To contrast, in the month of May, the worst fundraising month for the Democrats since 2003, Democrats were only able to bring in just north of $4.5 million…for the entire month.
So if you’re to go off of fundraising alone, as of right now it looks like the American people are all on board with Making America Great Again!
