Former Vice President Joe Biden announced that his campaign brought in a massive campaign haul during the Democratic convention last month ahead of the August campaign finance filing. President Donald Trump has attempted to keep his campaign numbers hidden with a late filing, and by Sunday evening it was clear why.
Trump’s total haul for August, when he got a week’s worth of free media from the Republican convention, was just $61.7 million. The campaign spent almost all of it, $61.2 million.
The campaign still has about $900,000 in debt. His cash on hand is just $121 million in the bank.
Trump’s big donor support has dropped by 61 percent as he refuses to turn out for virtual events.
Trump has raised over $1 billion that he’s blown through.
The Trump reelection committee itself filed just moments ago (again, there is also RNC + joint ops, which will not file tonight):
Total August receipts: $61.7 million
Total spend: $61.2 million
Cash on hand: $121 millionhttps://t.co/fk4iLL5ESQ
