Whoooo buddy, President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign is kicking serious butt! On Thursday they announced that they raised $46 million in just the fourth quarter of 2019. Holy cow!
There has reportedly been an inpouring of donations after the articles of impeachment were pursued by the House Democrats. Bad move on their behalf!
According to a Trump campaign official, this brings the president up to $102.7 million on hand!
Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh tweeted, “As 2020 dawns, I’m proud to be working hard for Donald Trump’s re-election,” He added, “His wins for all Americans, the strong and growing economy, and promises made and kept will ensure victory.”

Trump isn’t the only one raising surprising amounts of money. Mayor Pete Buttigieg is catching up to Bernie Sanders in campaign donations.
According to Breitbart,
In a memo from campaign manager Mike Schmuhl, Buttigieg’s campaign said Wednesday it had received more than 2 million contributions from over 733,000 people and had raised $76 million since he launched his bid for president. It’s a notable feat for the former mayor of South Bend, Indiana — Buttigieg gave up the position Wednesday when his successor was sworn in.
Buttigieg has come under fire for holding big-dollar fundraisers with wealthy donors that, until recently, he kept private. But in the fundraising announcement, Buttigieg’s campaign touted that its average contribution was about $38. And the big-dollar fundraisers have paid off — Buttigieg’s 2019 fourth-quarter haul is far beyond the $19.2 million he raised during the third quarter of the year.
It doesn’t mean a whole lot in the big scheme of things though, because Trump is going to blow the Democratic nominee out of the water, no matter who it is.
