President Donald Trump’s attacks on The Lincoln Project may have contributed to a massive fundraising haul for the anti-Trump group.
Republican consultant John Weaver, and member of the group, told Fox News that in 20 hours after Trump blasted the group in a series of tweets it brought in $1 million.
He said, “12 hours of insane rage attacks by Donald Trump accelerated views of Mourning in America by millions and motivated thousands of Americans to donate to our effort to oust him and his enablers. The Lincoln Project won’t be intimidated by him or his low traveling allies.”
Reed Galen, a member of the Lincoln Project’s advisory committee, told CNBC that it was the largest fundraising day the group has seen yet.
Trump lashed out at the group, co-founded by George Conway, in a series of tweets on Tuesday after it released an ad blaming the president for the “worst economy in decades,” as IJR reported.
….get even for all of their many failures. You see, these loser types don’t care about 252 new Federal Judges, 2 great Supreme Court Justices, a rebuilt military, a protected 2nd Amendment, biggest EVER Tax & Regulation cuts, and much more. I didn’t use any of them….— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 5, 2020
….lost for Evan “McMuffin” McMullin (to me). Steve Schmidt & Reed Galvin lost for John McCain, Romney’s campaign manager (?) lost big to “O”, & Jennifer Horn got thrown out of the New Hampshire Republican Party. They’re all LOSERS, but Abe Lincoln, Republican, is all smiles!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 5, 2020
