As President Donald Trump awaits his impeachment trial in the U.S. Senate — once House Speaker Nancy Pelosi decides to turn it over — the president’s campaign is busy setting fundraising records from emboldened supporters across the country.
According to Daily Caller, the president’s re-election campaign managed to raise over $45 million in the fourth quarter of 2019, which trounced all of his potential Democratic competitors.
Brad Parscale, Trump’s campaign manager, explained why he thinks the president is doing so well with the American people.
“President Trump’s unprecedented fundraising is testament to his wide grassroots support and his stellar record of achievement on behalf of the American people,” Parscale said. “Democrats and the media have been in a sham impeachment frenzy and the president’s campaign only got bigger and stronger with our best fundraising quarter this cycle.”
Even better for the president and his team, the $45 million is only what Trump’s re-election campaign has raised — it doesn’t even take into account what the powerful, Republican National Committee will take in.
It’s safe to say that the president will begin 2020 with a deep campaign war chest. It’s estimated that he’ll begin his 2020 campaign with an impressive $102.7 million in spendable dollars. It was also reported that the president and his team saw a noticeable uptick in donations during the House-led impeachment investigation.
As a matter of fact, in one week alone — during the height of the Democrats’ impeachment frenzy — the Trump campaign managed to haul in $10 million.
Staggering $46M raised by @realDonaldTrump in Q4 2019.
Jaw-dropping $102.7M CoH.
This is JUST CAMPAIGN fundraising and doesn’t include RNC. That will be HUGE too.
Big response to POTUS record.
Dems impeach & Trump gets stronger!https://t.co/TRtmJNV1Se

It’s not unreasonable at this point to assume that when Trump is officially on trial in the Republican-controlled Senate, his campaign could stand to set another record fundraising haul, given the fervent support he receives from voters across the country.
