According to the Federal Election Commission reports, Former President Trump is out-raising any ex-president in American history. Numbers don’t lie, and fundraising numbers this large are cause for concerns if Democrats hope to maintain their marginal majorities after the 2022 midterm elections.
Donald Trump isn’t just raising money — he’s raking in millions and millions of dollars from donors both big and small — and everything in between.
Trump’s popularity breaks the mold of typical, old-fashioned Republicanism. No longer is the Party that of old money, stogy, rich corporatists funding their interests in the federal government. The Former President has revitalized the GOP to attract supporters from every socioeconomic and racial background — and his fundraising numbers prove just that.
FEC reports confirm that Trump’s popularity is higher than ever. His PAC has raised more than $82 million in the first half of 2021, and there’s currently over $100 million in his coffers.
Trump is the first former president to report nine figures in donations for his political operation, and that’s after a total ban from Big Tech platforms, which makes his achievement even more notable.
In a mere six months, as the Former President faces attacks from Democrats, RINOs, Mainstream Media, and the Biden administration, donors nationwide have voted with their dollar — even if Mr. Trump isn’t currently running for office.
The widespread policy failures coming from the Biden administration have also helped Trump’s fundraising efforts. From failed border security, inflation, and foreign policy to the botched response to vaccination and the pandemic, Biden is doing wonders for Donald Trump’s campaign pockets.
The rough total dollars and contributions averages out to be around $25.63 per donation.
The president has not decided to run for office again, but he has teased it and said “antiquated” campaign finance laws are keeping him from making an official campaign announcement.
“It seems like he’s going to go all out for his chosen people.”
That means spending to bolster Trump-endorsed Republicans in the 2022 midterms to help the Republican Party take back the House and Senate majorities.
