Trump Campaign Makes Record-Breaking Achievement on President's Birthday

Share

President Donald Trump got a mammoth birthday present from Americans on Sunday as his campaign smashed its previous one-day online fundraising record.

The Republican National Committee and Trump’s re-election campaign took in $14 million in online donations on the president’s 74th birthday, topping the record of $10 million in online donations that Trump’s campaign set on Oct. 19, 2016, according to Fox News.

The campaign’s overall record for donations of all types was $25 million, which was set on the day Trump formally announced he was running for re-election.

The president and the RNC now have about $255 million in cash for the final months of the campaign as opposed to about $100 million that the Democratic National Committee and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden have to spend.

Illustrating the president’s populist appeal, the RNC, Trump Make America Great Again Committee and Donald J. Trump for President Inc. said that the average gift to the campaign on Sunday was $46.

“Enthusiasm for President Trump continues to be our greatest motivator and political weapon,” RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said.

Will President Donald Trump win re-election?

“Republicans are thinking smarter digitally and harnessing support and energy for President Trump to up our online fundraising game and outwork, outdo, and outmaneuver the Democrats at every turn,” she said.

In addition to their donations, about 1 million people signed an online birthday card for the president.

Trump on Sunday tweeted a comparison of his record against Biden’s time in the Senate and as vice president.

“The grassroots support behind President Trump’s re-election is something no campaign has ever seen,” Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale said.

Parscale said Americans’ interest in Trump’s upcoming rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, is a barometer of their support for him. The event Saturday is being criticized for being held while the coronavirus remains present.

“Just as more than a million people have registered for tickets to the President’s rally this weekend, they are also donating to help his campaign in record numbers,” Parscale said. “There is an enthusiasm gap – it is real and it is wide.

“President Trump’s supporters would run through a brick wall to vote for him. Nobody is running through a brick wall for Joe Biden.”
