Effect Impeachment: Trump Sweeps Fundraising For Reelection

This is his best fundraising period, in a year in which he raised $ 143 million.

"The Democrats and the media were in a frantic mock recall and the president's campaign just got bigger and stronger with our best fundraising quarter," said Trump 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale.

"The president's war chest and the army of grassroots supporters make his reelection campaign an unstoppable monster," he said.

Trump was accused of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress on December 18 by the House of Representatives controlled by Democrats. He must still be tried by the Senate, where he is expected to be acquitted since his Republican allies are a majority. But the scandal broke out in September, when he learned of the pressures he exerted on Ukraine to investigate former Democratic Vice President Joe Biden.

In the two days after the approval of the impeachment by the lower house, the president's campaign raised a whopping $ 10 million, according to a report by The New York Post retweeted on Thursday by the candidate himself.

In the Democratic Party, fourteen White House candidates seek to keep the presidential nomination and challenge Trump at the polls on November 3. But none managed to raise as much money as the president.

Senator Bernie Sanders, however, announced a considerable figure on Thursday: more than $ 34.5 million harvested in the last quarter, the best result announced by a candidate for the Democratic primary in 2019.

Sanders, to the left of the party, is second in the polls of the internal Democrat, behind Biden, who has not yet announced the amounts collected in the last quarter.

Sanders' team also said it exceeded five million individual donations, a figure that its previous presidential campaign did not achieve until March 2016.

Another moderate candidate, the youngest in the primaries, Pete Buttigieg, also announced very good results on Thursday: he received $ 24.7 million in the last quarter and 76 million total in the year. It is an impressive sum for this ex-military, openly declared homosexual and unknown to the general public a year ago.
