‘Unprecedented’: Trump’s Early 2020 Fundraising Numbers Will Be Hard for Democrats to Top

President Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign’s fundraising game is “unprecedented” for any presidential incumbent seeking re-election, per the Associated Press.

It reports his re-election campaign hauled in over $30 million for Quarter 1 of 2019—showing “he’s edging out his top two Democratic rivals combined.” The article noted the campaign provided them with these numbers.

How are these figures broken down?

Per AP, the Trump campaign said 99% of its donations were mostly contributions of $200 or less. The average donation, they estimate, is $34.26.

To date, Trump’s re-election campaign has $40.8 million cash on hand— which the AP calls “an unprecedented war chest for an incumbent president this early in a campaign.” Combined with RNC fundraising, Trump’s 2020 campaign has a whopping $82 million in the bank thus far.

Impressive. It also reveals Trump’s base is still invested and interested in his platform—contrary to media reports.

Per FEC records, Trump filed for re-election on the day of his inauguration, January 20, 2017.

It’ll be interesting to see if his Democrat rivals can match that, especially since the endless number of declared candidates are scrambling to prove who is the most progressive of them all.
