President Donald Trump held his first-ever virtual fundraiser on Tuesday night and raised a whopping $20 million from the more than 300,000 individual donors who participated.
Kimberly Guilfoyle, the national chair of the Trump Victory Finance Committee, told Breibart the campaign had raised a truckload of money from many Americans who want to see Trump in office for four more years.
“This is a great day for the president and for the country showing the robust enthusiasm for President Donald Trump,” Guilfoyle said.
“They want four more years,” she continued. “We had over 300,000 people log on for our event tonight to donate to the president. We raised over $20 million in the first-ever of its kind virtual Zoom event.”

Raising $20 million in a single fundraising event is jaw-dropping for any candidate, especially during a global pandemic that has made holding in-person events very tricky and difficult.
The event was co-hosted by Guilfoyle and Donald Trump, Jr. along with Trump’s younger daughter Tiffany Trump.
Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows also made an appearance at the virtual event to speak on behalf of Trump and why it’s important that he wins re-election.
“This shows the momentum that the president has that everyday Americans are choosing President Donald Trump,” Guilfoyle told Breitbart. “The silent majority is speaking up with a willingness and a desire to vote for four more years on Nov. 3.”
Guilfoyle said the successful grassroots event allowed everyday Americans to have a direct connection to the president, even if in virtual form.
“Everyday Americans who are forgotten no more under President Donald Trump were able to log on and participate with the president,” Guilfoyle said. “This is a great day for Americans,” she added.
“It has not dropped at all, the small-dollar [donations], through the digital and the mail program,” RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel told the Washington Examiner back in April. “And we’ve seen some pretty big days of fundraising as well.”
The president’s fundraising numbers dwarf those of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, whose campaign has reported just $633 million raised as of Monday.
In the first quarter of this year, the Trump campaign raised an eye-popping $212 million.
“The president’s re-election effort has raised more than $677 million over the course of the election cycle, about $270 million more than former President Barack Obama had raised by this point in 2012. Biden, who became the de facto Democratic nominee after Sen. Bernie Sanders dropped out last week, and the Democratic National Committee reported having just $20 million at the beginning of March,” the report said.
Democrats should be terrified of this.
As they fight harder and harder to get Trump out of office, Americans and pouring cash into Trump’s re-election campaign.
