Trump Sets New Fundraising Record, Outpacing Biden

Former President Donald Trump recently set a new fundraising record, hauling in more than $50 million at a campaign event in Palm Beach, Florida, according to the Republican National Committee (RNC).

Trump’s strong fundraising out-paces the $26 million that President Joe Biden garnered at a fundraising event in New York City alongside former Democratic presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton.

In a press release, the RNC pointed out that Trump’s fundraising event broke “every fundraising record in history for a Republican or Democrat.”

“Tonight will be an incredible night for President Trump and the Republican Party, raising an astounding $50.5 million,” senior campaign advisers for Trump, Chris LaCivita and Susie Wiles, said in a statement.

“Meanwhile, after locking up the nomination in one of the fastest primaries in modern political history, Donald J. Trump is winning poll after poll and proving that the enthusiasm is on his side. It’s clearer than ever that we have the message, the operation, and the money to propel President Trump to victory on November 5,” they added.

The Daily Caller noted that the record-breaking fundraising event comes after the Trump campaign, the RNC and its affiliated joint fundraising committees hauled $65.6 million in March 2024.

RNC Chair Michael Whatley and Co-Chair Lara Trump touted Trump’s fundraising event, noting that its success is because Americans are “fed up” with Biden’s disastrous policies.
“The success of tonight’s event is proving what we already know: Americans are fed up with Biden’s record of failure, from the open southern border and sky-high inflation to the migrant crime crisis that has made everyone less safe,” Whatley and Lara said.

“The Republican Party is united behind the effort to elect President Donald J. Trump, and Americans are lining up to join our movement and retire Crooked Joe Biden once and for all,” the RNC officials added.

Biden’s reelection campaign previously revealed that it raised $90 million in March 2024 and that it entered April with more than double the amount of cash on hand than Republicans.

Trump continues to dominate the president in polls. Of all the swing states, Biden is only ahead of Trump in Pennsylvania, leading by less than one percentage point.
