Republican enthusiasm is continuing to grow for President Trump’s re-election campaign. GOP fundraisers predict the president could rake-in as much as $2.5 billion during the 2020 election cycle.
The record number would double the amount failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and former President Obama raised during their campaigns. It would also quadruple the $600 million President Trump raised in 2016.
One America News recently spoke with the Trump campaign’s deputy communications director, who said there’s no democrat who can match the enthusiasm for the president.
“We are just seeing overwhelming support for the president. They (Democrats) can bring in a quarter of what the president has brought in. What this money is being able to give us the opportunity to do is get our message out to voters, to register voters, to knock on their doors, to make sure the campaign never has to worry about the opportunity to expand the map to go into competitive states. We are not going to be limited on any front in making sure that President Trump wins in 2020.”

The president’s campaign and the RNC raised a record $24.8 million on the day he announced his re-election campaign. They also raised a combined $105 million in the second quarter.
