The Trump campaign has announced a record-breaking online fundraising effort following Thursday night’s debate performance, raking in a massive $26 million.

“This was the re-election effort’s largest digital fundraising day ever, raising 30 percent more and reactivating 20 percent more past donors than previous debates,” they announced.

The campaign claims that October “is already Trump Victory’s largest online fundraising month ever” and is being used to power “the largest infrastructure in political history” just days before the election.

The Hill reports that the President’s campaign will use the latest haul to air ads in Minnesota where the RealClearPolitics average suggests Biden is leading by six points.

The Trafalgar Group, one of the only polls to nail the 2016 election results, however, has President Trump within o.4%.

Did Trump’s Solid Debate Performance Lead to the Massive Fundraising?

Perhaps it was President Trump’s markedly improved debate performance Thursday that led to the massive influx of cash.

The President slammed Joe Biden’s terrible economic agenda, which would cost the average family an estimated $6,500 per year.

“His plan is an economic disaster,” Trump said.

Trump also condemned Biden’s plan to eliminate America’s oil industry.

“Basically, what he’s saying is he is going to destroy the oil industry,” he said.

President Trump was very successful in highlighting his many accomplishments for Black Americans.

“Criminal justice reform, prison reform, Opportunity Zones… Historically Black Colleges and Universities…” he recalled.

“[Biden has] been in government 47 years and never did a thing, except in 1994, when he did such harm to the Black community,” Trump continued.

Trump managed to call out Biden for his family profiting off of his position and power in foreign countries while noting that he’s done little to help the American people as a career politician.

Something we reported would be necessary to win the debate.

“You keep talking about all these things you’re going to do, but you were there just a short time ago, and you guys did nothing,” the President railed.

The Pendulum Is Swinging Back In Trump’s Favor

The Trump fundraising haul comes shortly after the Biden campaign announced records of their own in August and September.

Biden announced a massive fundraising effort, bringing in $383 million in September after they had already set a record of $364.5 million raised in August.

The Political Insider reported that the numbers, while impressive, don’t exactly translate to victory.

Hillary Clinton lost spectacularly in the 2016 election despite far-outpacing Trump in committee money and more than doubling his total in “outside money.”


Trump had to rally in that historic election, as you’re well aware.

It remains to be seen if the President’s debate performance will rake in votes along with the money. But the momentum is on his side just 11-days out from Election Day.

“Trump won this debate, handily,” former Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly said. “Biden wasn’t a force at all. Trump was substantive, on-point, well-tempered. Definitely helped himself, when it mattered most.”

Biden’s oil industry and fracking comments may also turn voters off in critical battleground states such as Pennsylvania and Ohio.
