In just three months, former President Donald Trump has raised more than $35 million, doubling his fundraising number from the first quarter of the year.
Between April 1 and June 30, Trump doubled his first quarter fundraising numbers from $18.8 million to over $35 million.
The fundraising was split between Trump’s campaign and his Save America PAC, according to a report from Politico.

Trump's poll numbers also continue to surge, even after his biggest rival, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, officially entered the race.
A June Harvard poll found that Trump led DeSantis by a margin of 67 to 33%.
That number is a slight decrease for DeSantis from Harvard’s poll taken in May before the governor entered the race.
Trump leads DeSantis in multiple state polls. A June poll found that Trump holds a 23-point lead over DeSantis in South Carolina.
Trump leads DeSantis among New Hampshire Republicans with a lead of 28 points.
In Colorado and Wisconsin, straw polls found Trump up by four points and 19 points.
In New York, 61 percent of potential GOP primary voters support Trump, giving him a 43-point lead over DeSantis.
After news of Trump's commanding lead in the state, New York congresswoman Elise Stefanik has called on the GOP to unite behind Trump’s campaign.
"Now is the time for Republican voters to unite behind his campaign and focus on winning back the White House," Stefanik said. "Over the past few months, it became clear that President Trump ran away with the Republican nomination and is the best candidate to defeat Joe Biden in 2024."
A campaign official for Trump said that the average donation to Trump's campaign is just $34, which reveals "It's evident that grassroots voters overwhelmingly stand with President Trump."
