The budget for the election campaign of US President Donald Trump at the beginning of 2020 amounted to $ 102.7 million, Reuters reports on January 2, citing an unnamed official.
According to him, only in the IV quarter of 2019, the campaign raised $ 46 million. This amount was a record for the quarter. The increase in donations, according to experts, is associated with the initiative of the US Democratic Party to impeach the head of state.
The amount collected already exceeds the one that the campaign of the President of the Democratic Party, Barack Obama, at the end of 2011.
As stated in a statement released by the head of the campaign, Trump Brad Parskal, the quarterly fundraising results indicate widespread public support for the head of the White House, Fox News reports.
In late December, former US Vice President Joe Biden said that he had the best chance of defeating the incumbent head of state, Donald Trump, in the presidential election in November 2020. The name of the candidate from the Democratic Party in the 2020 US presidential election will be announced at the party’s national congress.
