THANKS, DEMS! Trump 2020 And RNC Raise A Whopping $125 MILLION In 3rd Quarter Because… IMPEACHMENT

Written by K. Walker on October 3, 2019

Can you say… WINNING? Can you say it 125,000,000 times?

President Trump said that we’d get tired of winning.

I don’t know about you, but I’m McLovin’ every second of this!

My favorite part is the constant self-owns that the Democrats keep stumbling into as they attempt to finally “get” the President and overturn the results of the 2016 election. (Trump Derangement Syndrome is a helluva thing!)

It was revealed yesterday that the Democrat push to impeach President Trump has energized the Republican base. The Trump 2020 campaign, as well as the RNC, are rakin’ in the dough.

Politico reports that in the two days following Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s push for a “formal” impeachment inquiry, the campaign took in $8.5 million in online donations. In the same 24 hours, the campaign says that they attracted 50,000 new donors. 

President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign and the Republican National Committee raised a combined $125 million over the past three months, Trump’s campaign announced Tuesday — a massive total that disturbed some Democrats who believe their party should be more focused on countering Trump’s head start in the 2020 presidential election.

The two committees ended September with more than $156 million cash on hand, they announced. They did not disclose individual totals for the Trump campaign or for the Republican National Committee, which will be reported later this month.

This is particularly bad news for Democrats who don’t seem to raise money as easily as Republicans.

The party’s cash-on-hand total is particularly substantial: Republicans pointed out that the $156 million figure is more than twice as much as former President Barack Obama and the Democratic National Committee had at the same point before the 2012 election.

The RNC has consistently outraised the DNC by large margins this year, and the GOP committee had $53.8 million on hand at the end of August, compared with the DNC’s $8.2 million. Four Democratic presidential candidates have released third-quarter fundraising numbers so far: Bernie Sanders ($25.3 million), Pete Buttigieg ($19.1 million), Kamala Harris ($11.6 million), and Cory Booker ($6 million).

The concern that some Democrats have is that the Trump 2020 campaign and the GOP will be using the substantial war chest to target and define Democrat candidates before a nominee has even been selected.

Some leftists are finding this incredibly troubling. Tara McGowan, CEO of the progressive nonprofit ACRONYM said, “They’re spending a lot of money to rally their base and keep them engaged. This is the thing that makes me lose sleep at night — that we do not have a counter-effort to combat that. It’s scary to think about how much groundwork he’s laying this early in the race.”

The focus on impeachment might be making the TDS-suffering Democrat base happy, but the move to impeach a president with an election just 13 months away may not play well with Independents. It’s also seeming to mobilize the Trump Train just in time for 2020.

But hey, that’s the strategy that the Democrats have chosen to take.

Whatever floats your boat, Democrats.

The Trump campaign, meanwhile, has been doing exactly what the Dems feared. They’ve put out ads targeting Joe Biden for foreign interference due to his son’s cushy job in Ukraine.

(As an added bonus, Nickelback may have been ticked off in the process.)

Thanks, Democrats. Very cool.
