Donald Trump, GOP to post big Q2 numbers, $123M on hand

Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale said the latest report shows “unprecedented support from across the nation.”

President Donald Trump’s 2020 reelection effort is touting some substantial fundraising numbers.

According to a statement, between the campaign, authorized joint fundraising committees, and the Republican National Committee (RNC), Republicans will have raised nearly $108 million in the second quarter of 2019.

Official numbers will be filed with the Federal Election Commission Monday evening.

Three Trump entities and the RNC report bringing in a combined $123.7 million in cash on hand.

The RNC’s formal filing is due Saturday.

The three entities — Donald J. Trump for President, Inc., Trump Victory, and the Trump Make America Great Again committee — raised a collective $56.7 million in the quarter ending June 30.

Preliminary fundraising reported by the RNC was $51.3 million by the end of June. The three Trump entities will show $80.2 million on hand, while the RNC will report $43.5 million cash on hand.

Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale said the latest report shows “unprecedented support from across the nation.”

“As the Democrats continue their race to the left,” Parscale added. “Americans are responding to the President’s pledge to Keep America Great.”

RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel boasted that the numbers give the GOP “a major advantage over the crowded field of Democrats as the RNC continues investing in our world-class field program and growing our incredible grassroots army,”

“As enthusiasm for this President continues to grow,” McDaniel said, “these resources ensure President Trump and Republicans up and down the ballot are in a strong position to win heading into 2020.”

Also, the reelection campaign will report over 957,000 individual donations — 98.42 percent were $200 or less — with an average donation of $41.48.
