Trump Is Raising His Bid For 2020, New Numbers Are In!

It seems every presidential election starts earlier and earlier. President Donald Trump might have just taken office three months ago, but some haven't lost sight of the future. Some Trump supporters are already thinking about securing the next win, and their goal right now is fundraising.

Three committees are continuing with their fund-raising efforts for Donald Trump, looking ahead with the hopes of a second term. Donald J Trump for President, Trump Victory, and Trump Make America Great Again Committee have not slowed down their fundraising just because Trump won in 2016. They've already raised a whopping $13.2 million for 2020.

Most of the money is coming not from super PAC or billionaire business people. Most of the money is coming in dribs and drabs from small donors. The majority of donors gave less than $200.

The committees aren't the only ones looking forward to 2020. The GOP has raised $41.3 million, and that is only for the first quarter of 2017. According to the RNC, there are more than 250,000 new donors already contributing to Trump's re-election campaign.

Trump raised nearly three times as much as former President Barack Obama in the first quarter of 2009. Obama had only raised $15.8 million. According to the Washington Post, "That's largely because, unlike his predecessors, Trump has not ceased fundraising since his election. Emails touting Trump-branded merchandise and offering donors the chance to win a trip to Washington for his inauguration helped him stockpile $8.4 million for a 2020 reelection bid by March 31."

With the country practically engaged in a civil war, it’s not likely the POTUS will have to do much for his supporters to push forward. In the face of protests and criticism, it seems to only be helping build the momentum.

While some Trump haters don't believe a second term is possible, they might not want to underestimate the president. After all, they underestimated him all throughout 2016, through the primaries, through the general election, and look who is sitting in the Oval Office.
