Lara Trump: Grassroots Support for President Stronger than Ever
Q4 Fundraising Report Shows Vast Majority from Small Donors, Huge Cash on Hand Ending 2017
NEW YORK, NY – Today, Donald J. Trump for President, Inc. announced fundraising totals for the 4th Quarter of 2017, as reported to the U.S. Federal Election Commission. The report showed the campaign committee raised $2,165,435 in direct contributions and $3,538,078 in allocations from its joint fundraising committees with the Republican National Committee. Along with customary vendor refunds and other receipts, the total receipts to the campaign committee reported to the FEC for Q4 2017 equaled $6,902,305.
The campaign committee finished the year with an impressive $22,109,158 in cash on hand – an unprecedented feat for a sitting President in his first year in office.
Most importantly, in the 4th Quarter and throughout the entire year of 2017, the vast majority of campaign committee receipts were from small donors contributing $200 or less. This equaled 98.6% of Q4 contributions and a near-identical 98.5% of contributions for all of 2017.
“Our latest FEC report is just one reflection of a fundamental reality: grassroots support for President Trump is stronger than ever,” said Lara Trump, Senior Advisor to Donald J. Trump for President, Inc. “Never before has a President’s campaign committee raised so much in his first year in office, and never has a President enjoyed so much support from small donors who continue to rally around him. President Trump is grateful to those hard working men and women who believe so strongly in his commitment to Make America Great Again that they continue to contribute to our campaign in record numbers. After a year of Trump policies, they and all Americans are seeing the benefits of the President’s leadership through a booming economy and greatly improved national security, and, as the President said in his first State of the Union address last night, as we build ‘a safe, strong and proud America’ together,” she concluded.
