Latest monthly fundraising numbers reveal massive Trump surge

Democrats have been banking on the notion that all of the legal troubles they have concocted to ensnare former President Donald Trump would be the final nail in his political coffin and ensure Joe Biden's re-election.

However, as the Associated Press reports, in the wake of Trump's conviction in a Manhattan courtroom last month, his campaign has outraised Biden's by a margin of over $60 million, thoroughly disproving the left's theory of what would transpire this summer.

Conviction backlash yields fundraising boom

May was an undeniably strong fundraising month for the Biden campaign, with his efforts and those of the Democratic National Committee drumming up roughly $85 million over the course of the month.

That haul brought the total amount on hand to approximately $157 million, according to The Hill, which is an indisputably impressive figure.

Even so, Trump's fundraising success in the wake of his felony convictions put Biden's to shame, based on federal filings that emerged on Thursday.

Last month, the Trump campaign, in conjunction with the Republican National Committee, took in a whopping tally of $141 million, with much of that coming in directly on the heels of the outcome in the hush money case.

From strength to strength

April was also a strong month for Trump in terms of fundraising, with the president achieving what some may have thought impossible -- the erasure of what was previously a noteworthy cash deficit in comparison with the Biden campaign coffers.

Trump and the RNC brought in a hefty $76 million total in April, with Biden taking in just $51 for the month.

Adding to the Trump money surge was billionaire Timothy Mellon, who added $50 million to a super PAC working in support of the former president's campaign, a move made just one day after the felony convictions in New York.

Observers suggest that the excess cash may be deployed by Trump for purposes of voter outreach efforts in key battleground states from now until Labor Day.

Fundraising battle continues apace

It should be noted, however, that last week's fundraising reports do not reflect the large sum secured by Biden at a recent Los Angeles event featuring a host of celebrities or the $20 million given by Michael Bloomberg to groups supporting the president's campaign.

Even so, the Trump camp is surely bolstered by the incontrovertible evidence that, despite the best efforts of a handful of liberal prosecutors, the lawfare being waged against the presumptive GOP nominee has not derailed his ability to secure donations on a level needed to prevail in a presidential campaign.
