President Trump’s fourth-quarter fundraising numbers have been released — he’s blowing all the Democrats running in the primary out of the water.
The Democrats also released their fundraising numbers and the Media(D) are gushing over the “massive sum” that Bernie Sanders managed to raise thus far:
Senator Bernie Sanders raised $34.5 million last quarter, his campaign said, the largest single-quarter haul by any candidate so far in the Democratic primary race https://t.co/LItuORK88m

That’s pretty impressive for an angry, septuagenarian socialist who had a heart attack on the campaign trail.
“Preachy” Mayor Pete Buttigieg raised over $25 million in the last quarter, while Biden raised $21 million and Liz Warren shows that her fundraising stream seems to be slowing to a drip as she keeps talking. (I wonder if she has a plan for not being inspiring enough for people to donate to her campaign?) Even no-hope-in-hell-but-easily-the-nicest-guy-running candidate, entrepreneur Andrew Yang, raised over $16.5 million mostly through small donations.
Still, it doesn’t hold a candle to President Trump’s fundraising.
CNBC reported that President Trump has raised over $46 million in the last quarter.

“Democrats and the media have been in a sham impeachment frenzy, and the president’s campaign only got bigger and stronger with our best fundraising quarter this cycle,” he said. “The president’s war chest and grassroots army make his reelection campaign an unstoppable juggernaut.”
The Trump campaign began the year with $19.3 million on hand. It raised $143 million and banked $83.4 million.
Its total of $102.7 million compares favorably with the $81.8 million President Barack Obama had on hand at the start of his reelection bid at the close of 2011, according to Reuters.

President Trump’s campaign manager, Brad Parscale, explains that this isn’t including the RNC fundraising number.
Staggering $46M raised by @realDonaldTrump in Q4 2019.
Jaw-dropping $102.7M CoH.
This is JUST CAMPAIGN fundraising and doesn’t include RNC. That will be HUGE too.
Big response to POTUS record.
Dems impeach & Trump gets stronger!https://t.co/TRtmJNV1Se

It seems that the partisan impeachment combined with President Trump’s fantastic record is working against the Democrats.
….it’s alienating independents. This President is being persecuted over three years with one investigation after another, and that really plays to his base.” @FoxNews @cvpayne Their partisan Witch Hunt is hurting our Country do badly, & only bringing more division than ever!

Of course, critics will say that President Trump’s haul isn’t close to what the Democrats have raised combined, but they will have to spend some of their cash fighting each other for the nomination while POTUS DJT can sit back and wait to see who is the last one standing and focus his attention on that individual.
Please, please, please let it be Joe or Bernie. Because the Trump Meme Team is going to make the most ah-may-zing memes… and that will certainly make the election entertaining!
