    ‘The Republican Obama’: Trump Raises $100 Million From Small Donors in Less Than Three Months

    Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has raised as much as $100 million from small-dollar donors contributing $200 or less to his campaign — in less than three months.

    Trump’s campaign has surpassed a “threshold no previous Republican has ever achieved in a single campaign,” according to Politico, which looked over Federal Election Commission filings and spoke with operatives familiar with the campaign’s fundraising efforts.

    John McCain and Mitt Romney raised less than $64 million each in small donations in 2008 and 2012. Barack Obama set the record in 2012 with $483.6 million in under-$200 donations in 2012. During the 2016 cycle, Vermont independent and socialist Bernie Sanders raised nearly $202 million before conceding and endorsing Hillary Clinton, who has raised $156 million in small donations through July, amid reports her campaign has “purposefully and repeatedly overcharged” her poorest donors who agreed to only make a one-time contribution to her campaign.

    Trump raised $5 million in a single day: August 31, the day he held a joint press conference in Mexico with President Enrique Peña Nieto and gave a powerful speech outlining his immigration policy in Phoenix, Arizona.

    “I’ve never seen anything like this. He’s the Republican Obama in terms of online fundraising,” said one senior GOP operative.

    Trump is an amazing person. He won more votes in the primary than any Republican in the history of the Republican Party and now he's raised more money in the General Election from small donors than any other Republican candidate. And he's done this without any advertising to speak of and without Trump fund-raising events. The fund-raising events he participates in are ones set-up by the RNC to raise money for the party, only a portion of which comes to the Trump campaign.

    Trump is so smart, so hard-working, and has the best heart. He truly wants to do good for the communities and areas where he invests and for the customers who frequent and trade with his businesses. When you bring such discipline, intelligence, common sense and loyalty to the community and customer to the White House, he'll be shocking the world with achievements that benefit our nation and citizens. He will not only be setting new standards and a new example for our country, in many ways, he'll be showing other world leaders how to fix their own messed up countries without feeding on the United States.
