Trump Scores Massive Haul at Private Florida Fundraiser

At the end of March, the Biden campaign was giddy after Joe Biden hauled in about $25 million at a fundraiser held at Radio City Music Hall.

After the end of the month, that fundraiser was more or less the difference maker that allowed Joe Biden to outraise Donald Trump for the month.

Well, Trump answered the bell in a big way, holding an event in Florida that reportedly raised more than $50 million for Trump’s campaign.

Big Money, No Whammies

Joe Biden’s event was anything but the “grassroots” even that his campaign would love for you to believe it was.

There were an estimated 5,000 people at the event, with the cheapest tickets going for about $225.

However, where they really made their money was in pictures with Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, and Joe Biden, which cost about $100,000.

There were also several “private” receptions, costing between $250,000 to $500,000 to attend.

After the event was over, Biden’s campaign stated, “This historic raise is a show of strong enthusiasm for President Biden and Vice President Harris and a testament to the unprecedented fundraising machine we’ve built.

“Unlike our opponent, every dollar we’re raising is going to reach the voters who will decide this election — communicating the president’s historic record, his vision for the future and laying plain the stakes of this election.”

Trump dwarfed Biden’s event by raising an estimated $50 million with more than 100 of the richest conservatives in the country.

Among the attendees for the event were casino mogul Steve Wynn, hotel entrepreneur Robert Bigelow, and oil executive Harold Hamm.

The event itself was hosted by hedge fund founder John Paulson, who stated, "The response to our fundraising efforts has been overwhelming, and we've raised over $43 million so far.

"There is massive support amongst a broad spectrum of donors."

The Trump campaign also took a shot at Biden, stating, "It took three Democrat presidents to raise $25 million and one president to raise over $50 million, Donald J. Trump.”

This event was a lifesaver for Trump, who only had about $30 million cash on hand prior to the fundraiser.

This now levels out the playing field considerably between the two campaigns, but more importantly for Trump, it shows that the biggest donors in the party are now uniting around Trump’s campaign.

Thus far, Donald Trump’s biggest campaign expense has been his legal bills, but he is going to have to start taking out more ads if he plans to beat Biden in the upcoming election.

The Biden campaign recently took out a reported $30 million ad buy to attack Trump, so he will have to attack these campaigns with attack ads of his own, and he won’t be able to do that if he keeps taking money from his campaign to pay his legal bills.
