Incredible haul amid trials closes Trump-Biden fundraising gap

 May 6, 2024

The likely nominee for the Republican Party has continued his attempts to lessen his fundraising disadvantage against President Biden in their 2024 election rematch, according to a report by Fox News.

Just days ago, the campaign of former President Trump and the Republican National Committee (RNC) highlighted the fact that they brought in more than $76 million by the end of the previous month at the same time.

The revelation was made when Trump gave the keynote speaker at the Republican National Committee's spring donor event, which took place in Palm Beach, Florida.

Fundraising Details

This is an increase from the $65.6 million that Trump and the Republican National Committee brought in in March.

However, throughout the month of March, Biden and the Democratic National Committee brought in a total of almost $90 million.

In addition, as of the beginning of April, the president had more than twice as much money in his campaign coffers than the Republican rival and his predecessor in the White House. This information was disclosed by the campaign.

But since the former president secured the nomination for the Republican Party in March, the fundraising efforts of both Trump and the Republican National Committee have skyrocketed.

Additionally, his senior political aides have consistently stated that they would have sufficient campaign funding to compete with Biden.

From Team Trump

"President Donald J. Trump is not only winning across every battleground state, but we are raising the resources necessary to deliver a victory in November," Trump campaign senior advisers Chris LaCivita and Susie Wiles said in a statement Saturday that announced the April haul.

"With half of funds raised coming from small dollar donors, it is clear that our base is energized. The Republican Party is united, and voters nationwide are ready to FIRE Joe Biden and elect President Donald J. Trump," they added.

"Our team will continue working every day to exceed expectations, raise the funds we need, and build an unmatched party infrastructure to prove that President Trump’s momentum is unstoppable," RNC chair Michael Whatley and co-chair Lara Trump added in the statement.

Whatley, the former chair of the Republican Party in North Carolina, and Lara Trump, the daughter-in-law of the former president, were installed as the new leadership of the Republican National Committee at the beginning of March.

Timing of the Fundraising

This occurred about the same time that Trump effectively gained control of the party when he won the nomination.

Trump took a short vacation from his criminal trial in New York City to attend the spring gathering of the Republican National Committee.

The former president is currently facing almost three dozen state felony charges for allegedly fabricating business records.

These charges are in relation to hush-money payments that he allegedly made to Stormy Daniels during the 2016 election in order to keep quiet about his alleged affair with the adult film actress. These violations are said to have occurred while he was running his campaign before winning in late 2016.

Both Trump's purported sexual encounter with Daniels and his falsification of business papers have been refuted on multiple occasions by the president.
