The Trump campaign raised $ 100 million in September, including a personal contribution of $ 2 million from the Republican presidential nominee, bringing the total amount raised to date to $ 360 million.
“These numbers show that Donald Trump continues to have incredible broad based support from across America,” said Steven Mnuchin, Donald J Trump for President Finance Chairman.
Describing the amount as a “historic total”, the Trump Campaign said the $ 100 million haul came mostly from small donors and includes a monthly $ 2 million contribution from Donald Trump.
“Trump’s contribution more than covered the costs of any reimbursements to him (or his related entities) for his plane and office rent; which the law mandates to be reimbursed. He has contributed an unprecedented amount to his campaign,” the campaign said in a statement.
This brings total raised to date (inclusive of his contributions) to $ 360 million, the media statement said.
The Campaign and both Joint Fundraising Committees now have approximately $ 75 million in hand.
Since the campaign started, 2.6 million people have contributed to it (a 24 per cent increase from the previous month).
Earlier, the Republican National Committee (RNC) announced that the party raised $ 39.4 million in September and currently has $ 56.6 million cash in hand.
“With our ground game fully funded, we will continue to raise and spend on additional resources that will put Donald Trump in the White House with Republican majorities in the House and Senate,” said RNC chairman Reince Priebus
