President Trump’s reelection campaign raises $36 million in the first week after he announced his reelection bid for the White House in 2020.
The president raised $6 million just on Tuesday during a fundraiser at the Trump International Hotel in Washington D.C. with 225 people in attendance.
Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders has the most cash on hand out of his Democratic opponents coming in at $22 million.
Just last week, the spokesperson for the Republican National Committee Ronna McDaniel announced the president raised over $24 million in the first day after announcing his reelection bid.
According to data released by the Federal Election Commission, the RNC has $37 million cash on hand and the Democratic National Committee only has $8 million.
This comes about a week after President Trump officially launched his reelection campaign from the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida.
@realDonaldTrump has raised a record breaking $24.8M in less than 24 hours for his re-election. The enthusiasm across the country for this President is unmatched and unlike anything we’ve ever seen! #trump2020 #KeepAmericaGreat

Meanwhile, the 2020 Democratic contenders had the first night of debates Wednesday from Miami, Florida, kicking off the two-part event.
Immigration, health care, and climate change were hot topics during the debate, though the candidates largely avoided focus on President Trump and his accomplishments.
President Trump weighed in on the debate via twitter calling it “boring” while in route to the G-20 Summit in Osaka.
The Trump campaign previously voiced its goal of raising $1 billion to ensure President Trump’s second term in the White House.
