Pete Buttigieg Raised $24.8 Mil in 2nd Quarter of 2019, Trump Did It In 24 Hours

Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg raised a whopping $24.8 million in the second quarter of this year, his campaign and multiple outlets are reporting. His campaign is gleaming and the figure is a clear sign he is the candidate to take on President Trump in 2020, right? Mainstream media seems to think so:

The presidential candidate took to Twitter to thank those who invested in his campaign, saying: “Thank you to the over 400,000 of you who have invested in this campaign, and who helped us raise over $24,800,000 this quarter alone. You inspire us every step of the way, and we’re just getting started.”

Mainstream media would probably like its viewers to forget this inconvenient truth: The same amount of money it took Buttigieg three months to raise—$24.8 million—President Trump raised in a single day.

Check it out via Fox News:

President Trump’s campaign operation raised a whopping $24.8 million in less than 24 hours amid his 2020 re-election launch in Florida on Tuesday — a figure that blows past what any of the Democratic candidates raised in the entire first quarter.

According to an RNC spokesman, the fundraising — at a clip of $1 million an hour — came through the Trump re-election campaign and joint-fundraising committees Trump Victory and Trump MAGAC (Make America Great Again Committee). A Trump campaign official told Fox News on Wednesday that the campaign raised more than $14 million, and that the joint-fundraising committees raised more than $10 million.

Minutes later, RNC Communications Director Michael Ahrens tweeted: “For those keeping score, that’s more than the 5 highest polling Democrats—combined.”

And, via the Daily Caller:

The president brought in more money in one day than any of the Democratic presidential hopefuls raised during the entire first quarter, according to officials. Former Vice President Joe Biden led the other 2020 Democrats in first-day contributions with $6.3 million, followed by former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke, who came in second place with $6.1 million.

“This shatters every fundraising record! By comparison, Biden raised $6 million… the top 5 Democrats COMBINED only raised $14 million,” tweeted Eric Trump. “The excitement for [Trump] last night was off the charts! #Winning”
