Trump And RNC Raise Enormous Amount Of Cash, Blow Past Obama’s 2012 Campaign

President Trump is getting the job done for the American people and they are determined to get him re-elected.

In fact, Trump and the RNC just raised FAR MORE cash in the second quarter than Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign did at the same time.

Here’s the scoop…

From The Hill:

President Trump’s reelection campaign and the Republican National Committee (RNC) announced Tuesday they had raised $105 million in the second quarter, a huge haul that is greater than what President Obama raised over a similar period in 2011.

The two entities reported a combined total of $100 million cash on hand, and raised more money online in the second quarter than in the entire first half of 2018, according to a campaign press release.

Trump and his committees raked in $54 million, while the RNC pulled in $51 million. It’s unclear from the release how many donors pledged money or how big their donations were.

The fundraising highlights how Trump has consolidated his strength within the GOP following a 2016 cycle in which he battled more than a dozen other candidates to win the Republican nomination. It suggests Trump will be well-funded in a general election against whichever Democrat emerges to face him.

Obama’s reelection campaign raised $47 million over the same period in 2011, while the Democratic National Committee took in $38 million.

Obama decided to mark Earth Day by pretty much admitting his entire time in the Oval Office was a complete joke.

First, see his tweets…

Young people all over the world are leading the way in the fight to protect our planet because they know their future depends on it. This Earth Day, I want to celebrate the courageous, committed young leaders who are stepping up to save the one planet we’ve got.

This guy should run for President. He can give speeches about the moment the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal. It’ll be awesome.

The partisan warfare over the Mueller report will rage, but one thing cannot be denied: Former President Barack Obama looks just plain bad. On his watch, the Russians meddled in our democracy while his administration did nothing about it.

The Mueller report flatly states that Russia began interfering in American democracy in 2014. Over the next couple of years, the effort blossomed into a robust attempt to interfere in our 2016 presidential election. The Obama administration knew this was going on and yet did nothing. In 2016, Obama’s National Security Adviser Susan Rice told her staff to “stand down” and “knock it off” as they drew up plans to “strike back” against the Russians, according to an account from Michael Isikoff and David Corn in their book “Russian Roulette: The Inside Story of Putin’s War on America and the Election of Donald Trump”.

Why did Obama go soft on Russia? My opinion is that it was because he was singularly focused on the nuclear deal with Iran. Obama wanted Putin in the deal, and to stand up to him on election interference would have, in Obama’s estimation, upset that negotiation. This turned out to be a disastrous policy decision.
