Just one day after launching his bid for re-election at a rally in Orlando, Florida, Trump has broken a political fundraising record.
His campaign took in almost $25 million dollars in 24 hours. That’s an amazing haul.
CBS News reports:
Trump campaign raises $24.8 million in one day for reelection campaign launch
President Trump’s reelection campaign says it raked in $24.8 million in 24 hours on the day he marked the launch of his bid to keep the White House — a sizable figure for a campaign war chest that already far surpasses any of his Democratic opponents.
The fundraising figures come as Mr. Trump’s campaign manager, Brad Parscale, claims Mr. Trump would win the 2020 presidential race in an “electoral landslide” as of today, despite internal and independent polls that show Vice President Joe Biden and other Democrats easily defeating Mr. Trump. Parscale told CBS News chief Washington correspondent Major Garrett in an interview at Mr. Trump’s Orlando rally Tuesday that raising $25 million was the goal for the day.
“@realDonaldTrump has raised a record breaking $24.8M in less than 24 hours for his re-election,” Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel tweeted Wednesday morning. “The enthusiasm across the country for this President is unmatched and unlike anything we’ve ever seen! #trump2020 #KeepAmericaGreat”
Trump campaign communication director Tim Murtaugh tweeted, “Do the math: that’s more than a million dollars an hour for an entire day.”
GOP Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel noted the accomplishment on Twitter:

Katie Pavlich of FOX News also commented on this:
Going into Trump’s rally on Tuesday, the re-election campaign had $40.8 million in cash-on-hand at the start of second-quarter fundraising on April 1. Combined with the RNC’s joint fundraising committees, they have a combined $82 million cash-on-hand for the second quarter.
Responding on “Outnumbered,” Pavlich noted the enthusiasm in Florida for Trump’s election kick-off event, with 100,000 people requesting tickets to attend.
“This is different this time in terms of the apparatus the president has for his campaign,” she said, adding the campaign and the RNC have held 250 events to train more than 400,000 volunteers.
Trump is going to be extremely difficult for Democrats to beat.
He is perfectly positioned, heading into 2020.
