Hillary Clinton and her supporters seem to think she won the debate Monday night but Trump’s campaign raked in a massive amount of donations following the event.
FOX News reported:
Trump: Campaign has raised nearly $18 million since debate
Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump told supporters Tuesday that his campaign had raised nearly $18 million since Monday night’s debate against Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
Earlier, Trump had tweeted that he had raised nearly $13 million in the previous 24 hours through online donations and “National Call Day,” a challenge for top fundraisers rewarded for pulling in at least $250,000.
“We’re still going! Thank you America! #MAGA” (Make America Great Again), Trump also said in the tweet. He announced the updated figure at an airport rally in Melbourne, Fla.
Most polls have Trump and Democratic rival Hillary Clinton virtually tied, with less than six weeks before Election Day.
Trump, who essentially self-funded his primary campaign, has largely trailed Clinton in general election fundraising.
One of the only reasons Hillary has topped Trump in fundraising is because she has Wall Street and all the rich hedge fund managers backing her.
