Despite what most mainstream media outlets continue to say about President Trump’s chances for 2020, he is entering his re-election campaign with unprecedented fundraising figures—a clear sign of support for the president.
The Republican National Committee announced on Tuesday that they and Trump raised a massive $105 million over the second quarter, far surpassing the $85 million that former President Barack Obama had at the same point in 2011, Politico reports.
“Our massive fundraising success is a testament to the overwhelming support for President Trump,” Trump’s campaign manager Brad Parscale said via Politico. “No Democrat candidate can match this level of enthusiasm or President Trump’s outstanding record of results.”

According to the report, the Trump team has more than $100 million cash on hand:
Trump and his fundraising committees raked in $54 million of the $105 million total, while the RNC collected $51 million. RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said in a statement that the “record-breaking fundraising” by the national party “has allowed us to identify troves of new supporters online and continue investing in our unprecedented field program.”
McDaniel added: “Our grassroots army is already hard at work — putting us in prime position to re-elect President Trump and Republicans across the country.”
Even CNN had to admit it:
Trump's haul — and the $100 million war chest he and the RNC have in remaining cash — cements his early fundraising advantage over the Democratic field https://t.co/sdGWkuxQGk
