Donald Trump and his joint fundraising committee have raised $11 million since Tuesday morning. This comes as a tremendously quick bump after concerns about only having $1.3 million left in the campaign.
Trump Raised $11 Million Since Tuesday
Trump Victory, the joint fundraising account with the Republican National Committee, and Trump’s official campaign raised $5 million online since Tuesday morning, when it sent one of its first fundraising pitches to its email list, according to RNC spokesman Sean Spicer.
“We are incredibly excited by the outpouring of support from the grassroots supporters who want to see this country experience real change,” said Hope Hicks, a Trump spokeswoman. Trump has not done small-dollar fundraising since launching his campaign a year ago, and is not expected to begin a full online fundraising operation until the convention in July.
“We’re going to raise a lot of money,” Eric Trump said, subsequently heralding what he described as a “lean” campaign. “We don’t need the kind of money that Hillary (Clinton) needs.”
