(Dmytro “Henry” Aleksandrov, Headline USA) The Donald Trump campaign announced that it raised over $45 million in the third quarter, despite the establishment trying its hardest to make life harder for him.
The result may sound like even better news for Trump, considering that fundraising campaigns usually experience a lag during this time, the Epoch Times reported. The constant indictments and, especially his mugshot, were some of the many reasons why the support of Trump is so strong.
His campaign announced in an Oct. 5, 2023, Twitter post that out of the over $45.5 million raised in the recent quarter, Trump has more than $37.5 million “cash on hand.”

“In an impressive testament to the overwhelming grassroots support behind President Trump that will lead to dominating victories, close to $36 million of the total cash on hand is designated for the primary,” Team Trump wrote.
According to the Times, the campaign’s successful fundraising came during July, August and September, when he faced multiple lawsuits.
“The Q3 numbers are even more impressive considering the Summer months are usually when most campaigns experience lagging fundraising support. President Trump and his campaign have completely shattered that notion,” his campaign said.
The Trump campaign also pointed out how another 2024 presidential candidate from the same party — Gov. Ron DeSantis, R–Fla. — was able to only get $5 million cash on hand for the primary election, which is not even one-seventh of the $37.5 million that the Trump campaign has on hand.
The fact that DeSantis’s campaign didn’t get as much money as it expected is a “grave indication that Ron’s candidacy may not live to see the Iowa caucuses in January, or even, the end of this month,” according to the Trump campaign.
“While DeSanctus’s fundraising, like its poll numbers, has seen an exponential drop even from July, President Trump outraised his impressive $35 million haul in Q2 (which doubled Q1 fundraising) by more than $10 million,” it said.
