Following House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s announcement that the House was moving forward with an impeachment inquiry, President Trump’s reelection campaign and the Republican National Committee (RNC) raised some $5 million in 24 hours, a top Trump campaign official said Wednesday.

Trump’s campaign manager Brad Parscale tweeted on Wednesday afternoon that the campaign has “blown out” fundraising, bringing in $5 million combined in the first day, with donors in all 50 states.

“In the 24 hours since news of Nancy Pelosi’s impeachment announcement, @realDonaldTrump’s campaign & @GOP have BLOWN OUT fundraising!” Brad Parscale, Trump’s campaign manager, tweeted, adding that donations have come in from all 50 states.

The Democrats calls for Trump to be impeached came after allegations that he withheld military aid from Ukraine in order to pressure them to investigate Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son, Hunter.

As Pelosi announced details about the inquiry, the president took to Twitter, calling the inquiry “presidential harassment,” and a “total witch hunt.”

In a tweet Wednesday, RNC chief of staff Richard Walters said the Trump campaign and the RNC had raised a combined $30 million in the past week alone.

The Trump campaign mobilized very quickly after Pelosi’s announcement, texting a fundraising plea to Trump supporters, asking them to donate and join the “Impeachment Defense Team.”

 

President Trump and the RNC has had record breaking fundraising success, currently holding $56.7 million cash on hand, according to the latest FEC filings. So far, Trump’s 2020 campaign election has raised more than $120 million, crushing Democratic candidates in fundraising totals.
