Donald Trump’s grim fundraising gap behind Hillary Clinton was revealed on Monday night. According to newly filed FEC documents, the Trump campaign ended the month of May with less than $1.3 million on hand, compared to the $42.4 million held by Hillary.
During the same month, the Trump campaign raised just $3.1 million in contributions compared to the $19.5 million Hillary for America took in. According to The New York Times, which should be taken with a grain of salt due to their distorted bias against Trump, these numbers put Trump at the “worst financial and organizational disadvantage of any major party nominee in recent history.”
However, many previous major party nominees were not successful billionaires. Trump also doesn’t have the gloated mega donor list that Hillary has attained with her corrupt Clinton Foundation schemes.
Leading GOP fundraiser Fred Malek said Trump’s financial deficit was “huge and not widely understood,” adding, “Unless he’s willing to write a huge personal check, which is unlikely, I believe Trump will have a financial disparity of $300 million to $500 million.” We will have to wait until the RNC to see who will swoop in to help cover payments.
