Donald Trump sent out an email saying fundraising is going great, and that the money flowing in “crushed” original expectations on Saturday. He also declared that he will personally match new contributions made through July 31 up to $2 million.
“Our fundraising department can barely keep up,” Trump exclaimed in an email sent by the campaign to supporters. “I am going to personally match your donation today, and every day you donate up to midnight tomorrow, up to $2 million.”
Last month, Hillary Clinton reported that she had raised nearly $70 million in June, and began July with about $44 million on hand. Trump reported his best fundraising month in June, grabbing nearly $27 million in donations from small donors.
