According to new reports, President Trump’s 2020 campaign is banking off the recently-concluded Mueller investigation, which ultimately vindicated him of collusion and obstruction allegations, earning over a million dollars in donations.
Campaign COO Michael Glassner said the massive uptick in donations “drove a 250% increase in fundraising from grassroots donors.
For Trump, the results of the lengthy Mueller probe proved his repeated denials of the media’s narrative that he and his campaign colluded with Russia during the 2016 election to be true, and served as a black eye for both Democrats and the press.
Now, in an ironic twist for the Trump campaign, the oft-denounced Mueller investigation’s conclusion is giving the president a noticeable boost heading into the 2020 election.
From The Daily Mail UK:
The Trump 2020 campaign raked in $1million in donations after the Mueller report cleared him of colluding with Russia.
The campaign’s COO Michael Glassner boasted about the boost on Friday, telling The New York Post that it represented a 250 percent increase in a day.
‘The release of the full Mueller report directly led to the campaign raising more than $1 million.
‘Relative to our recent daily average, the Mueller news drove a 250 percent increase in fundraising from grassroots donors,’ he said.
Trump’s camp and the White House has reveled jubilantly in the report’s release since it emerged on Thursday.
It found that despite relentless efforts from Russia, no none on the campaign team, transition team or in the White House colluded.
It also found no evidence that President Trump was guilty of obstruction of justice either.
Most of Trump’s re-election campaign money came from the first quarter in 2019 when he raised $30million.
He had $10million to start the year off with.
The majority of the donations (nearly 99 percent) in Q1 were $200 or less.
Trump’s fundraising far surpasses the other candidates who are running in 2020.
Bernie Sanders has the second highest amount with a little over $17million and John Delaney has $10million. Elizabeth Warren has $11million.
Many have interpreted the glowing report as a huge endorsement for the president’s re-election campaign
