The president’s re-election campaign brings in over $30 million for the first quarter of this year leading the top Democratic competitor by around $12 million.
The campaign notified news outlets on Sunday saying it has $40 million on hand combined with another $46 million the Republican National Committee matched.
There’s already so much enthusiasm and support for President Trump’s re-election.

According to the Associated Press, almost all of the donations were $200 or less, and the average donation was around $34.00.
Both Bernie Sanders and Kamala Harris, the top two Democratic opponents have raked in $30 million together.
The president’s campaign manager Brad Parscale weighed in on the numbers saying President Trump is “a vastly stronger position at this point than any previous incumbent president running for re-election.”
Excellent first quarter! 👍 https://t.co/PUnzK2308T

This comes after the Trump re-election campaign raised $10 million at the end of last year.
Unlike other presidents, President Trump launched his re-election efforts shortly after taking office.
The projected target for reelection efforts is set around $1 billion.
