Sure, a lot of people have already donated to President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign this year.
Indeed, it’s expected that once next week’s third-quarter campaign reports are tallied, Trump’s total haul for 2019 is going to swamp the total raised for all of the Democrat presidential candidates COMBINED.
But in just the 24 hours after Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the launch of an impeachment investigation over the Ukrainian hoax this week, “Trump and the Republican National Committee raised $5 million from online donors in all 50 states.”
Here’s what the Trump campaign put out in a follow-up fundraising email on Friday…
“In this impeachment fight, you’re either with President Trump or you’re with Nancy Pelosi, Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and their unhinged SOCIALIST MOB.”
Don’t be surprised if that $5 million is doubled by the end of the weekend!
People vote with their wallets. And they’re voting “bigly” against impeachment. Against Pelosi. Against AOC. And against “the squad.”
Is it “negative”? Yep. Is it working? YEP!!!
Sure, many people are personally put off by Trump’s Bronx-style brashness and don’t care for his penchant of ridiculing his opponents (I do, but that’s just me).
On the other hand, the enemy of my enemy is my friend. It’s “us against them.” And it works, especially in fundraising.
Over the last three years, Trump has masterfully singled out and called out longtime enemies of conservative Republicans: The Democrats, the RINOs (Republicans in Name Only), and the liberal “Fake News” media.
So even voters who don’t like him personally are not only uniting behind the president, they’re digging deep into their wallets. At record-breaking levels.
Do ya think, from a political and fundraising standpoint, that maybe, just maybe, the president is onto something here?
And make no mistake, the Democrats are using impeachment for THEIR campaigns, as well.
They’re just not as good at doing it.
