The Trump campaign, meanwhile raised $30 million, 99 percent of which came from donations under $200, and now has $40.8 million in cash on hand. The Republican National Committee brought in $45.8 million, a record for a non-election year, to supplement the president’s war chest.

At this stage in his 2012 reelection campaign, former president Barack Obama had raised about $2 million of the over $720 million he would eventually pull in. The Trump campaign plans to crack the $1 billion mark before the 2020 election is over.
