GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump set a record in September that no other Republican has managed to do, which suggested his base of supporters continued to grow despite media allegations that he’s losing ground.
The Trump campaign announced Saturday in a statement that it has received a total of $360 million from a record-breaking 2.6 million individual donors, which is up 24 percent from August. Those individual supporters represent the largest donor group of any Republican candidate in history, according to the nominee’s campaign.
Last month, Trump’s campaign ended with approximately $75 million cash. Trump has contributed $2 million monthly to his campaign.
“These numbers show that Donald Trump continues to have incredible broad based support from across America. We want to thank our many volunteers and contributors that are clearly committed to electing Donald J. Trump as President in November,” Steven Mnuchin, Donald J. Trump for President finance chairman, said in the statement.
During the second presidential debate, Trump challenged Democrat rival Hillary Clinton to donate some of her own money to her campaign. She ignored the challenge because she is already bought and owned by big donors, some of which have ties to terrorist groups.
Even with wealthy donors, Clinton still collected less than half of what Trump raised in September.
Keep in mind that Trump was able to raise this amount of money without the support of Republican elites. Imagine what he could have raised had they decided to support the party’s nominee.
The mainstream media would like to gloss over this fact because it doesn’t mesh well with their reports that Trump is steadily losing steam in the race. The truth seems more likely that Trump supporters are so fed up with the status quo in Washington that they are willing to put their money their mouths are.
