Trump raises $51 million in June for campaign and GOP

"If I had to stop everything and comment to a ridiculous tweet sent out by this [Trump] campaign, I'd have no time for anything else", said Ryan, who supports Trump but has repeatedly spoken out against Trump's rhetoric, including his criticism of a Mexican-American judge. "Our campaign is leaner and more efficient, like our government should be", Trump said at the time. My understanding is this is done by staff, not by he himself.

The first email appeal - which included a $2 million match from Trump - exceeded the goal, collecting more than $3 million in contributions in one day, the campaign said. Joint efforts with the Democratic Party added another $28 million, for a total of almost $70 million.

That total is made up of $26 million in donations to the campaign and more than $25 million going to the Republican National Committee and other GOP groups.

Here's another way to look at this: Trump saw a 560 percent increase in his fundraising from May to June. In interviews both before and after that interview, Mr Trump has denounced Mr Duke. In May, Trump only raised $3.1m from donors.

But the Clinton campaign was not wallowing. Trump's June was 47th.

Trump's campaign started June with only $1.3 million in cash.

Clinton's choice for first event with Obama: North Carolina
After being derided on social media, Trump deleted the post and replaced it with one that had a circle instead of the star shape. But the circle appeared to be a quick fix Photoshop job, since points from the Star of David could still be seen behind it.

Your reaction to Donald Trump's use of that image.

Of these United States dollars 51 million, USD 26 million were raised through digital and small donations.

Noah also mocked the way Trump's campaign manager-turned-CNN booster Corey Lewandowski, who "who literally signed away his right to say anything bad" about his former boss, defended the image on TV Sunday morning. FEC documents show that Trump has only contributed $46m to his campaign, nearly all of which have been through loans.

The segment was prompted by an incident over the weekend when Donald Trump's twitter account tweeted a photo of presidential candidate Hillary Clinton which many called anti-Semitic. Trump began courting the party's wealthy elite in the final week of May, soliciting donations for the Trump Victory and the Trump Make America Great Again joint fundraising committees.

The Speaker of the House would very much like Donald Trump to tweet off. The campaign said it co-hosted 22 fundraising events with the RNC. Ever since, his campaign and Republican partners have been working furiously work to raise money even as he has seemed dismissive of its importance.
