Buoyed by NYC Conviction, Trump Raises $141M in May to Biden’s $85M

HeadlineJun 24, 2024

In election news, the Trump campaign and the Republican National Committee raised $141 million in May, far more than the $85 million raised for President Biden. Trump’s fundraising soared after he was convicted in New York on 34 felony counts in his hush money and election interference trial. In addition, the billionaire right-wing donor Timothy Mellon gave a separate $50 million to a pro-Trump super PAC. Mellon donated another $25 million to Trump over the past year, as well as $25 million to the campaign of Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Trump and Biden are preparing for their first debate on Thursday in Atlanta.
