Trump’s reelection campaign already raised $13.2 million

According to records filed by President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign with the Federal Election Commission on Friday, the campaign to re-elect the president has already raised $13.2 million.

The money was raised through three committees: Donald J. Trump for President, Trump Victory, and Trump Make America Great Again Committee. Most of the donations (80 percent) came from small donors in the first three months of the Trump presidency. According to the FEC report, much of the money came from the sale of merchandise, such as hats and other paraphernalia.

As for expenses, the reports indicated that the campaign has already spent $4.7 million on hats, t-shirts, mugs and stickers. They have also spent at least $2.7 million on data, telemarketing and other fundraising activities, much of which was sent to a web design and digital media firm run by the Trump campaign’s digital director Brad Parscale. Parscale’s firm received $1.6 million, and Parscale himself received $15,000 in addition to that money. Also, the campaign is maintaining an unusually large staff of 20 people.

Trump began his reelection campaign almost as soon as he was sworn into office, already branding himself with a new slogan: “Keep America Great.” The slogan plays off of his initial election campaign, “Make America Great Again.”
