With three major committees and more than 20 employees, the campaign for re-election is off to an unprecedented start. Average Joe America is putting his money where Trump’s mouth is.

First quarter earnings for the Trump campaign tallied $13.2 million. During the same quarter, the Republican National Committee raked in a whopping $41 million. America lies three plus years away from the next election, and Trump and team are already over $50 million ahead of…Alec Baldwin?!

According to Andy Kroll, Obama raised just over $300 million for his reelection, mostly with big money bundlers. Our team believes President Trump will easily surpass the billion dollar mark in 2020. And mostly with small donors.

Small Donors Make the Difference:

According to Politico:

Nearly 80 percent of the cash raised by the three committees — Donald J. Trump for President, Trump Victory, and Trump Make America Great Again Committee — came from small donors.

The FEC reports for the three Trump committees suggested that much of their fundraising bounty came from the sale of branded merchandise sold around Trump’s inauguration and early presidency.

The three committees spent more than $4.7 million on hats, t-shirts, mugs and stickers, according to the reports, while also spending at least $2.7 million on data, telemarketing and other fundraising activities that are critical to maintaining a small-donor base.

President Trump’s base is huge, and it’s growing more and more. During the campaign, candidate-Trump raised a fortune the very same way.

The media wants us to believe that President Trump is less popular than candidate-Trump. And fat meat ain’t greasy.

Middle of the road Americans put the man Trump in the White House. And you can bet that most are ecstatic with the choice.

But Trump did himself a huge favor when he declared his candidacy for re-election right after he took office.

In short, Trump outmaneuvered Leftists nonprofits.

Obama didn’t file for re-election until April 2011 for the 2012 election. When President Trump filed, he took steps to keep nonprofits from campaigning against him over the next few years. Filing with the Federal Elections Commission when President Trump did was unprecedented, yet legal.

As William Craddick reports:

Trump getting huge donations #KevinJacksonMore importantly, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations would no longer be able to engage in “political speech” which could theoretically affect the results of the 2020 U.S. Presidential Election without running the risk of losing their nonprofit status. The move effectively bars interest groups from creating nonprofits which they could funnel money into for the purposes of opposing Trump’s initiatives. This will likely create chaos for political opponents of Trump such as George Soros, who has sunk significant amounts of money into various nonprofit groups with the intent of opposing Trump’s government. How 501(c)(3) organizations will comply with the FEC’s regulations when participating actions which qualify as political speech remains to be seen.

The move is consistent with Trump’s campaign promises to reduce the financial influence of private special interest groups on Washington.

Nay-Sayers Lose Again

Gallop’s latest poll has Trump’s approval rating hovering around 41 percent. Translated to “real world” polling, this means that Trump has around 62 percent approval.

President Trump hasn’t hit the 100-day mark, and he’s already at rock star status. The Left knows this, and they are panicked about their possibilities in 2020. They have nobody, repeat nobody who can face Donald Trump.

But you can bet that whatever stooge they present as competition will be said to be a shoe-in for victory. Regardless, one thing is for dang sure. The Left better have a LOT of money!
