Trump's fundraising is an abysmal failure, unless you go by the message of the mainstream media.
It's reported that Donald Trump raised $30 million in the first quarter and that the campaign has $40 million on hand.
Given that Trump declared his 2020 candidacy right after being inaugurated, Trump's $30 million first quarter haul is an abysmal failure.
Consider that only the first two of the twenty Democratic candidates equalled Trump's $30 million. And Bernie Sanders alone has $28 million on hand, even though Sanders has not had the advantage of Airforce One and the free travel and advantages of the presidency and the Bully Pulpit.
Just these nine have raised about $68 million. I'd guess that the other ten or twelve candidates have easily raised seven million more, so Trump has been out-raised by one hundred and fifty percent. This is nothing to brag about. But watch the mainstream media frame the story very differently-- that Trump raised more than anyone else. It's a further indictment of every mainstream news anchor who frames it that way.
I'd like to know what the Democratic Party has raised, but haven't been able to find it. Can anyone dig up first quarter 2019 fund raising for the DNC or what Pelosi raised for the campaign?
