On Thursday, Attorney General Bill Barr released the complete unedited version of the Mueller report, which proved that President Trump was in no way in collusion with the Russian government.
The Trump campaign saw an increase in donations of 250% in the 24 hours following the release of the report, totalling $1 million dollars.
“The release of the full Mueller report directly led to the campaign raising more than $1 million. Relative to our recent daily average, the Mueller news drove a 250 percent increase in fundraising from grassroots donors,” Trump campaign’s COO Michael Glassner told New York Post.
The Trump campaign was able to pull more donation through a video titled “Now it’s time to investigate the investigators.”
“The video also asked supporters to check a page where they could donate $28 for a limited-edition “I SPY TRUMP TEE,” accroding to New York Post.

The Trump campaign has set a very high donation target of $ 1 billion by the time the polls open in 2020.
The Daily Mail reported:
Most of Trump’s re-election campaign money came from the first quarter in 2019 when he raised $30million.
He had $10million to start the year off with. The majority of the donations (nearly 99 percent) in Q1 were $200 or less.
Trump’s fundraising far surpasses the other candidates who are running in 2020.
Bernie Sanders has the second highest amount with a little over $17million and John Delaney has $10million. Elizabeth Warren has $11million.
The fact that 99% of Quarter 1 donations were $200 or less was one of the most important donation statistics. This means a few very rich people donating large amounts of money to the campaign. Instead, a very large amount of donations come from the middle class considering that most donations made are under $200.
