Former U.S. President Donald Trump helped in raising more than $56 million from online donors during the first half of this year.
Winred, the dominant online fundraising platform for Republicans reported that the “Trump Make America Great Again Committee” raises funds for the Republican party. Trump-associated committees brought in more cash than the combined fundraising by the two main Republican committees tasked to win control of Congress in next year’s election.
This shows Trump’s powerful sway over the party. He remains to be the most popular politician although he has not yet declared if he will run in the elections for president again in 2024.
