Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton launched a grenade at Donald Trump and Jeb Bush in a fundraising email Monday.

The message was a mass campaign email meant to raise money from supporters. Clinton has sent several similar emails in the last few days trying to raise as much money as possible before the Wednesday Federal Election Commission filing deadline.

As Clinton pointed out in a similar email Sunday, “When we finish out this quarter on Wednesday and file our official paperwork with the FEC, they’ll take a hard look at our fundraising report, trying to find signs of weakness.”

Clinton asks supporters for at least $1 dollar before attacking Jeb Bush and Trump.

“Jeb Bush’s team is made of millionaires and billionaires, and he wants to give them big tax cuts just like his brother did,” the email reads. “Donald Trump is the only person on his team, and, well, let’s just say it’s not hard to figure out who he cares about most.”

High fundraising levels would boost confidence in the campaign which is dogged by the email scandal and struggling to steal the spotlight from Trump.

Clinton and Trump traded barbs earlier this month when Clinton dismissed Trump’s claim that he will be a champion for women.

“If it’s all the same to you, Mr. Trump, I would rather you stop cherishing women and start respecting women,” Clinton told a crowd in New Hampshire.

Trump responded with a tweet mocking the teleprompter she used as “the biggest I have ever seen.” He followed up with another tweet:

“Hillary said such nasty things about me, read directly off her teleprompter…but there was no emotion, no truth. Just can’t read speeches!”

Clinton’s camp ends the email with a bolded plea to send the candidate a dollar:

“Donate $1 or more before September 30th and show the world you’re on this team:”
