The campaign and groups connected to former President Donald Trump said on Wednesday that they raised more than $65.6 million in March. A news statement says that the haul includes money raised by the Trump campaign, the Republican National Committee (RNC), and groups that are connected to them.

Trump's campaign finance system has been behind President Joe Biden's. They also said they had more than $93.1 million in cash on hand as of April 1.

A statement from Susie Wiles, a senior assistant to the Trump campaign, said, "Our campaign, working with the RNC, has been steadily stepping up our fundraising efforts. Our March numbers are a testament to the overwhelming support for President Trump by voters across the spectrum." Republicans may not get money from Hollywood and Silicon Valley leaders because they want to help themselves, but President Trump is happy to get money from people who are the backbone of this country. This will help Republicans all the way down the ticket.

Biden and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) have not said how much money they raised in March yet, but with help from former Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, the campaign raised more than $25 million at a fancy event in New York City on Thursday. Politico says that by the end of February, the Democrats had a total of $97.5 million on hand, which was a lot more than Trump and the RNC's $44.8 million.

The Biden campaign's rapid response director, Ammar Moussa, told the Daily Caller News Foundation in a statement, "Donald Trump spent his first month as the presumptive Republican nominee holed up in a back room at Mar-a-Lago with billionaire special interests while he continues to struggle with the kind of grassroots donors who are powering our campaign." "Trump spends the little money he has on things other than campaigning, and it is clear he does not have the support, infrastructure, or broad appeal to win this election."

Axios reports that Trump's legal fees have been going up throughout his 2024 campaign and cost his fundraising system more than $50 million last year.

"Once again, President Donald J. Trump has made Republicans incredibly eager to donate money." Trump has been the likely Republican choice for less than a month, but the RNC and his team are working together as one to win, RNC Chairman Michael Whatley said in a statement. "We are raising money and putting it to smart use to get people to the polls and protect the ballot." Within 31 weeks, we will have won BIG."

With their primary elections on March 12, Trump and Biden both won enough votes to clinch their parties' choices.
