Trump, RNC Triple Previous Month's Fundraising, Raise Nearly $66 Million In March

The Republican National Committee (RNC) and presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump raised millions of dollars in March as they aim to defeat the Democrats and President Joe Biden in the upcoming November election. Trump is currently facing a fundraising deficit compared to the Biden campaign, which recently held a massive $25 million fundraiser at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. 

According to figures reviewed by Politico, Trump and the RNC were able to raise $65.6 million and ended the month with $93.1 million on hand to fund Trump's presidential campaign. Trump's March fundraising numbers dwarf his previous donation numbers, with Trump raising $9 million in January and $20 million in February. Campaign advisor Susie Wiles explained that the large influx of cash to the campaign is thanks to the campaign "steadily ramping up our fundraising efforts, and our March numbers are a testament to the overwhelming support for President Trump by voters all across the spectrum. Republicans may not be beneficiaries of the self-interested largess from Hollywood and Silicon Valley elites, but President Trump is proud to be supported by donations from voters who are the backbone of this nation, which will fuel Republicans up and down the ballot."

"President Donald J. Trump has again created a fundraising juggernaut among Republicans. While he has been the presumptive nominee for the Republican Party for less than a month, the RNC and Trump campaign are one unified operation and focused on victory," newly-appointed RNC Chair Michael Whatley explained. President Trump will be hosting a major fundraiser on Saturday in Palm Beach, Florida, that could see up to $40 million raised to take back the White House.

While the Biden campaign has yet to reveal their fundraising numbers for March, it is likely to be significant following the NYC fundraiser held last week with former Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton. The Manhattan fundraiser, which had pricey $100,000, $250,000, and $500,000 tickets, was advertised as the highlight of Biden's March campaign push, which saw the 81-year-old president traveling to swing states to reinvigorate his struggling campaign. The event featured a panel discussion with the three presidents hosted by late-night host Stephen Colbert, as well as performances by Queen Latifah, Lizzo, Ben Platt, Cynthia Erivo, and Lea Michele. First Lady Jill Biden and DJ D-Nice also hosted an after-party event. The fundraiser, which had around 3,000 donors in attendance, sold out but was repeatedly interrupted by pro-Palestine protestors.

The Biden and Trump campaign fundraising battle will only get more competitive as the election nears. With the fate of the free world on the line, donors will put forth hundreds of millions of dollars to allow each candidate to get out their message and convince voters nationwide that they should have another four years in the White House.
