U.S. President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign has raised $10 million in the first quarter of the year, leaving his re-election operation with $28 million in cash, his campaign has disclosed.
Trump spent $3.9 million in the first quarter. In addition to raising money for his own campaign, Trump has also collected funds for joint efforts with the Republican National Committee, which uses that money to help congressional candidates.
