“President Trump’s unwavering commitment to keeping his promises to the American people has propelled us to break fundraising records again this quarter,” McDaniel said in a statement. “Democrats’ baseless impeachment charade has only made support for President Trump stronger.”
“President Trump’s campaign and the RNC are working hand-in-hand to reelect the president and help Republican candidates up and down the ballot,” Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale said in a statement. “The President’s record of accomplishment has inspired unprecedented grassroots support which will translate to his own reelection and resounding victories for Republicans from coast to coast.”
The president has raised a historic amount of money throughout his reelection campaign, including a record $27.3 million in September, the month that Democrats officially opened an impeachment inquiry against Trump.
