If you ask someone on the left about the 2020 election, they are likely to respond with a snide comment about the entire thing being little more than a formality. In their minds, there is no way on earth that Donald Trump gets re-elected.
In fact, they’ve lately been positing a strange fantasy in which President Trump loses the election, refuses to leave the White House, and is “fumigated” from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. That is to say that the left is so certain of their victory that they are openly telling the world that they can’t wait to forcibly remove the Commander in Chief.
But the Trump campaign still has a few tricks up their sleeves, and the Democrats would be foolish to ignore a recent, massive fundraising haul.
The president raised a massive $20 million from over 300,000 donors as he held the first virtual fundraiser of his 2020 reelection campaign on Tuesday evening.take our poll - story continues below
The eye-popping haul is nearly double the $11 million raised last month by Democratic challenger Joe Biden at a fundraiser co-hosted by his one-time boss, former President Obama. Fox News confirmed that Biden and Obama will team up again next Tuesday for a second fundraiser.
While the presumptive Democratic nominee has eschewed in-person fundraisers since the coronavirus pandemic swept the nation in March, the president has continued to hold such gatherings. The Trump campaign says the president brought in $10 million at a private in-person fundraiser held earlier this month in Hillsboro Beach, Fla., and an equal amount at a fundraiser last month in Dallas, Texas. He raised roughly $3 million at an in-person fundraiser at his golf club in Bedminster, N.J., last month.
The left may be counting their chickens before they hatch, which is nothing new for them, but they keep forgetting that Trump has a whole lot of poultry too.
