Trump Outraises Every Democrat With $46 Million Haul

President Donald Trump outraised every Democratic contender last year, though Democratic presidential candidates as a whole have raised far more money.

The campaign raised $46 million in the final quarter of 2019, CNN reported. The campaign called it "the best fundraising quarter for the campaign in the 2020 election cycle."

Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale said donations surged in response to the House voting to impeach the president. On the day of the impeachment, the campaign raised $3 million online.

"President Trump's unprecedented fundraising is testament to his wide grassroots support and his stellar record of achievement on behalf of the American people," Parscale said in a statement. "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."

The campaign raised a total of $143 million in 2019.

Trump outraises Dems -- but Sanders catching up:

Trump raised more money than any Democratic candidate last quarter and last year but the Democrats combined have vastly outraised the president.

Sen. Bernie Sanders alone raised $34.5 million last quarter, nearly $10 million more than he raised in the previous quarter. The campaign said that It received $18 million from 900,000 individual donations in December alone.

And even as Elizabeth Warren’s campaign slumps, she and Sanders combined to raise far more in 2019 than the president -- not even counting the other 13 candidates remaining in the race.

Other Dems release totals:

South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg’s campaign announced that it raised $24.7 million in the last quarter, over $5 million than it raised the previous quarter.

Entrepreneur Andrew Yang is the only other candidate to release his fundraising totals so far, announcing that he raised $15 million last quarter, about $5 million more than the previous quarter.
