Even amid an impeachment trial, President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign, along with the Republican National Committee (RNC), brought in a large sum of cash.
Trump’s re-election campaign announced on Thursday that the campaign, combined with the RNC and joint fundraising committees, raked in over $60 million in January — with more than $200 million cash on hand. All combined together, they brought in a total of over $520 million since January of 2019.
Additionally, the campaign says across the four entities, they have “gained over 1 million new digital and direct mail donors” since the impeachment began in September, according to the press release.
“The more Democrats smear President Trump, the more enthusiasm we see for him and his many accomplishments,” RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said in a statement, adding, “We already have 500,000 volunteers trained and activated, and this record-breaking support is helping us grow our grassroots army even more.”
Additionally, Trump’s 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale attributed some of the fundraising haul to the impeachment trial in Congress — where Trump was acquitted by the Senate on Feb. 5.
“The Democrats’ shameful impeachment hoax and dumpster fire primary process have only contributed to the record-breaking financial support for President Trump’s reelection,” he wrote in a statement.
“With President Trump’s accomplishments, our massive data and ground operations, and our strong fundraising numbers, this campaign is going to be unstoppable in 2020.”
