The Trump 2020 campaign raked in $1million in donations after the Mueller report cleared him of colluding with Russia.
The campaign’s COO Michael Glassner boasted about the boost on Friday, telling The New York Post that it represented a 250 percent increase in a day.
‘The release of the full Mueller report directly led to the campaign raising more than $1 million.
‘Relative to our recent daily average, the Mueller news drove a 250 percent increase in fundraising from grassroots donors,’ he said.
Glassner added: ‘Now it’s time to investigate the investigators’. Now, the campaign has raised more than $40million.
It set an ambitious goal of raising $1billion by the time the polls open next year.
Trump’s camp and the White House has reveled jubilantly in the report’s release since it emerged on Thursday.
It found that despite relentless efforts from Russia, no none on the campaign team, transition team or in the White House colluded.
It also found no evidence that President Trump was guilty of obstruction of justice either.
Many have interpreted the glowing report as a huge endorsement for the president’s re-election campaign.
Most of Trump’s re-election campaign money came from the first quarter in 2019 when he raised $30million.
He had $10million to start the year off with.
The majority of the donations (nearly 99 percent) in Q1 were $200 or less.
Trump’s fundraising far surpasses the other candidates who are running in 2020.
Bernie Sanders has the second highest amount with a little over $17million and John Delaney has $10million. Elizabeth Warren has $11million.
