Orlando, Florida was electric last night.
No, it wasn’t the daily fireworks display over The Magic Kingdom, nor was it a special-effects-induced spell from the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. It was just President Trump speaking to a sold out arena of supporters, officially announcing his 2020 reelection campaign.
Sure, we all knew that it was coming. There was no big “surprise” pop in enthusiasm. Instead, the President delivered a 90 minute speech on his vision for our great nation, riddled with callbacks to some of his most endearing subjects. He unveiled this campaign’s slogan as well: Keep America Great. Certainly predictable, but far too appropriate to not be correct.
Then, something truly magical happened.
President Donald Trump raised a staggering $24.8 million in 24 hours on the day he officially announced he was running for re-election.
The numbers were released by RNC chairwoman Ronna McDaniel and Tim Murtaugh, the Director of Communications for Trump’s 2020 campaign.
The number includes the $14 million raised by the Trump campaign and the more than $10 million raised by Trump Victory, the joint fundraising committee with the RNC.
For comparison, it took Joe Biden’s campaign nearly 3 months to raise $20 million, despite his PR team’s meticulously implemented entrance scheme.
President Trump is currently facing a field of 20-some democratic candidates – the largest ever in modern political history – and a possible primary challenge by former Massachusetts Governor Bill Weld.
Trump’s kickoff rally in Orlando was attended by some supporters who camped out for nearly 40 hours to catch a glimpse of the Commander in Chief.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
