President Trump didn’t raise a lot of money last time, and he still won. This time, he’s going to rake in plenty.
According to Paul Bedard at the Washington Examiner:
Republican donor enthusiasm is reaching new levels more than a year before the presidential election, sparking wild predictions that President Trump and the Republican National Committee’s joint fundraising committee will raise more than Trump and Hillary Clinton collected in the 2016 election.
GOP fundraisers said the president could rake in $2 billion to $2.5 billion, a record amount that is double what Clinton and former President Barack Obama took in for their most recent campaigns.
It would also be four times the $600 million Trump raised in 2016.

“With that kind of money, we’ll be hard to beat,” said a Trump insider, noting that Clinton out-raised Trump in 2016 2-to-1 and still lost.
