The Republican National Committee (RNC) and President Donald Trump‘s campaign posted their largest online fundraising day ever on Sunday, bringing in $14 million across three entities on the president’s birthday, smashing their previous online fundraising record of $10 million on Oct. 19, 2016, writes Fox News.
The RNC, along with the Trump Make America Great Again Committee (TMAGAC) and Donald J. Trump for President, Inc. (DJTP), received an average online gift of $46, Fox News is told. Trump turned 74 on Sunday.
The RNC-Trump campaign’s online birthday card campaign for the president received 1 million signatures alone.
According to an ABC News/Washington Post poll earlier this year, 53 percent of Trump supporters say they’re “very enthusiastic” about supporting the president, but only 24 percent of those backing Democrats’ Joe Biden say the same about supporting the former vice president.
“The grassroots support behind President Trump’s reelection is something no campaign has ever seen”, Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale told Fox News.
“Just as more than a million people have registered for tickets to the President’s rally this weekend [in Oklahoma], they are also donating to help his campaign in record numbers. There is an enthusiasm gap – it is real and it is wide. President Trump’s supporters would run through a brick wall to vote for him. Nobody is running through a brick wall for Joe Biden.”
The surge in cash comes as Republicans’ war chest continues to dwarf Democrats’ holdings, as it has for the entire primary cycle. Trump and the RNC – which have been building a fundraising juggernaut for more than three years – have roughly $255 million cash on hand, compared with the approximately $100 million the Joe Biden campaign and DNC have in their coffers.
