Trump to Rake in $43 Million at Fundraiser, Dwarfing Biden’s Record $26 Million Haul

Loading

By Janice Hisle and Austin Alonzo

Thanks to one big fundraiser in Palm Beach, Florida, former President Donald Trump’s campaign will emerge $43 million richer this weekend, an event host confirmed to The Epoch Times on April 4.

“The response to our fundraising efforts has been overwhelming, and we’ve raised over $43 million so far,” said billionaire John Paulson in an email that a spokeswoman sent. “There is massive support amongst a broad spectrum of donors.”

The amount secured for the April 6 “Inaugural Leadership Dinner” is 65 percent higher than the record-breaking $26 million that his Democrat opponent, President Joe Biden, raked in from a star-studded event in the Big Apple last week. At the time, President Biden’s campaign said no other political fundraiser in history had generated so much money.

The two opposing candidates’ big fundraising events represent an accelerating infusion of campaign cash into their respective camps as the 2024 presidential race shifts into high gear. The men are expected to face off in the Nov. 5 general election.

Last month, the Democrat incumbent and the Republican former president each secured enough delegates to become their party’s presumed presidential nominee. The delegates will vote at the parties’ nominating conventions this summer.

The two candidates first went head-to-head in 2020, during the most expensive federal campaign in history. Spending on the presidential race exceeded $6 billion, according to OpenSecrets.org, a nonpartisan research group that tracks money in U.S. politics.

Fundraising and political spending continues to grow in importance in U.S. elections. According to advertising monitoring firm AdImpact, the 2024 election cycle is projected to be the most expensive of all time. More than $10.2 billion will likely be spent on political advertisements by the end of this year.

When news of the private Trump soiree first broke late last month, Mr. Paulson had stated that donations had topped $33 million. On Thursday, neither his spokeswoman nor the Trump campaign would say what factors may have boosted the haul by $10 million in roughly two weeks since then.

Some of the wealthiest Republican donors are continuing to back President Trump even as he faces multiple civil and criminal court cases, including a New York “hush money” trial slated to begin April 15.

An invitation to the Palm Beach event, which The Epoch Times obtained, showed that former Republican presidential hopefuls would be present, along with President Trump. Those include Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.), North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum, and Ohio businessman Vivek Ramaswamy.

The invitation listed the event hosts as Mr. Paulson and Alina de Almeida. She is a social media nutrition guru who, according to the New York Post, is Mr. Paulson’s girlfriend; that report also indicated that the couple would host the fundraising dinner at their $110-million home.

By itself, the Palm Beach event will raise an amount equivalent to about 70 percent of the total $65.6 million that the Republican National Committee (RNC) and President Trump’s reelection committee pulled in last month.

Co-chairs listed on the Trump fundraising invitation include Robert Bigelow, head of Las Vegas-based Bigelow Aerospace; Howard Lutnick, chairman and CEO of financial services company Cantor Fitzgerald LP; Robert Mercer, former co-leader of hedge fund Renaissance Technologies; Phil Ruffin, owner of Las Vegas’s Treasure Island and Circus Circus hotel-casinos; and Wynn Resorts Ltd. founder Steve Wynn, who served as the RNC’s finance chair from 2017 to 2018.

As of March 6, all 2024 presidential candidates, including those who have dropped out, had raised $483 million; the amount that came from “outside groups supporting their campaigns” totaled $539 million, Open Secrets said, based on Federal Election Commission data

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who suspended his presidential bid in January, led the field with a total haul exceeding $200 million. In second place was President Biden’s $189 million, outpacing President Trump’s total by about $10 million, according to Open Secrets.

As of last week, President Biden’s campaign asserted that President Trump was “scrambling to raise cash as he lags behind President Biden in fundraising.

The Biden-Harris campaign trumpeted that the New York event would raise “$5 million more than the Trump campaign raised in all of February and more than the RNC reported raising all year.”

With big-name headliners, the fundraiser at New York’s Radio City Music Hall was sold out. About 5,000 attended in person, and thousands more watched online, the Biden campaign said in an email about the March 28 event.

Two former presidents, Barack Obama and Bill Clinton, joined President Biden along with multiple music artists and other celebrities. The event was held the same day that President Trump went to New York to pay his respects to a fallen New York police officer, Jonathan Diller.

President Biden did not attend the wake. But White House spokeswoman Karine Jean-Pierre extended President Biden’s condolences and said, “the president has stood with law enforcement his entire career.”

Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden recently stated that Trump lacks the infrastructure, messaging and money to win. Nothing about his or the Democrats superior policies or accomplishments, just that their flood of money will carry the day.

Well… maybe not.

New Poll Finds Trump Closing in on Joe Biden in Blue New Jersey – Within Single Digits

It appears many “reliable” blue states may be in play for Trump in November.

There’s been such a thing known as “The Trump Curse.”
Like yesterday, the earthquake that scared so many New Yorkers.
Its epicenter was Donald Trump’s Bedminster property 40 miles away from Manhattan.
One of the lefty judges overseeing one of Trumps many lawfare cases placed a value on Bedminster of a mere $35 million.
While the earthquake was being covered on NY media Bedminster was admitted to be worth over a billion.
OOPS!
Just when joe decides to nickname Trump, “Broke Don,” Trump becomes a multibillionaire from going public with his social media business.

Raising $50 billion from a billionaire dinner should clue you in on who expects to benefit.

Biden comments on Trump’s hedge fund billionaire haul:

Biden potentially laundered fraudulent donations? No names or addresses are given. No faces are shown. There’s nothing there that can be fact checked by anybody. There’s O’Keefe’s name. He “inspired” Horn, who’s a self-descripted Twitter “independent journalist”. (Also a convicted January 6 participant.)

It’s an ESTABLISHED FACT that Trump is a shameless scam artist. It’s been proven in court. He was busted in New York for charity fraud. He hustled $400 “Golden Sneakers” and imaginary trading cards. TruthSocial is a meme stock scam; there’s no actual value there. Presently he’s hawking $60 Bibles. Trump University? A proven scam, and a $25 million settlement to the people he screwed. He’s going to clean out the RCN coffers to pay his legal fees. A $50.6 million dollar haul from one dinner for millionaires and billionaires—but his followers are convinced he’s all about making their lives better.

It’s almost beyond belief.

$800,000 for a seat at Trump’s dinner table

…Billionaire donors will be asked to shell out more than $800,000 (£630,000) for a seat at Donald Trump’s dinner table this weekend, as the former president ramps up a fundraising war with Joe Biden…

30 get to sit with the lovely Melania the rest get the cheap seats, can only gaze from afar.

Good. It takes a lot of money to defeat leftist fascism.

Why are Democrats registering illegal immigrants to vote?

The bibles have been available for over 3 years in, more related to the C&W singer Lee Greenwood that sings God Bless the USA it is why they come with the founding documents.
Is any of the money from this Bible going to the Donald J. Trump Campaign for President?
No, GodBlessTheUSABible.com is not political and has nothing to do with any political campaign. GodBlessTheUSABible.com is not owned, managed or controlled by Donald J. Trump, The Trump Organization, CIC Ventures LLC or any of their respective principals or affiliates.
GodBlessTheUSABible.com uses Donald J. Trump’s name, likeness and image under paid license from CIC Ventures LLC, which license may be terminated or revoked according to its terms.

Bibles make the leftist’s skin burn, so they hate this idea.

Biden potentially laundered fraudulent donations?

No one said that, dipshit. But ActBlue has been questionable since it’s start. And anyone with two grey cells bumping together knows it acts far from the election laws regs.

When is Mark Zuckerberg going to be indicted for election interference? Or do you think his $400+ million dollar intervention into the 2020 election was not election interference?

BTW, asshole, take a look at the employment/unemployment stats under both Trump and Biden. If this is the best Biden can do (3.8%) Biden is toast. You guys are going to have to find even more ways to cheat this November.

He launders donations just like Hunter laundered his influence peddling money kicked back to Pop.

Why are Democrats registering illegal immigrants to vote?

Democrats have no “grassroots” campaigns. They have millionaires that make hundreds of small donations to make it LOOK like “grassroots”. No doubt the CCP is involved as well. Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden is a treasonous, incompetent, corrupt pedophile.

Why are the Democrats registering illegal immigrants to vote?

$50 MILLION.

Who do you think spends $100,000 to have a picture made with the three worst America-hating criminal in US history? You think Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden fundraiser had nothing but working folk?

Why are Democrats registering illegal immigrants to vote?

millions of forged registrations are being stockpiled as we speak d.m. is it just me or does it seem like no one is doing anything about that?

“We are a nation whose economy is collapsing into a cesspool of ruin, whose supply chain is broken, whose stores are not stocked, whose deliveries are not coming.” ~Trump~

Fact: The US GDP grew by 2.5% in 2023. The current US unemployment rate is 3.8%.

The average GDP growth rate over Trump’s 4 years was 2.6%. The average unemployment rate was 5.04%.

Poor Comrade Greggie. He is so fucking stupid he doesn’t realize that Biden uses the same metric as Obama did for “unemployment.” i.e. stacking the deck.

And the same trick of announcing great jobs numbers then quietly revising the numbers down the following month.

Part time jobs to illegals and government hiring, already busted, no manufacturing jobs.

Labor participation back down to Obama levels. Jobs created are part time, government and taken by illegal immigrants. Trump’s economy was GREAT and only the virus supplied by Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden’s business partners damaged it. I guess you forget that part… remember the month of 33% growth?

Why are Democrats registering illegal immigrants to vote?

You made me recall what obama said to the illegal who asked if she should even try to vote:
Sure.
Go vote and let “the system” decide if your vote will be counted.
Then, right after that, dems started shouting that EVERY vote should count not that every LEGAL vote should count.

Those 12,000,000 wetbacks aren’t here to mow yards or serve water. They are here to help with Democrats election fraud needs.

You want more of this? No thanks.

This Is Biden’s Reelection Pitch?!?!

Target = $43 million.
Actual proceeds? Donald Trump raised $50.5 million.

04/07/24 – ‘Lost $4 billion’: Maria Bartiromo grills Devin Nunes on Truth Social sell-off

“President Trump’s media company has had a volatile two weeks,” she noted. “The stock finished down about 30% this week. The company, which operates Trump’s Truth Social platform, lost $4 billion in market value after gaining six billion in value during its debut on the Nasdaq two weeks ago.”

“For 2023, Trump media posted a loss of $58 million on revenue and $4.1 million [profit] in a regulatory filing,” she continued. “The company also disclosed that its auditor had raised concerns about its ability to continue operating before its recent merger and IPO.” …

It’s a scam, Sam. There was no there there.

The rest of the market last couple days not so hot some short selling profiteers. the whole market is driven by algorithms and AI.
Its as real as X and facebook.

Along with X, it’s the only social media not controlled by the left.

X is controlled by an out-of-control A.I.

04/08/24 – Musk’s X pushed fake Iran-Israel headline generated by AI chatbot Grok – AI-generated story that Iran had fired missiles at Tel Aviv were amplified by X’s own systems

…The headline claimed heavy missiles had struck Tel Aviv, triggering panic among users worldwide…

False A.I. generated news could trigger riots, start wars, or crash the stock market.

She almost died following a miscarriage: Donald Trump Did This.

More than 1 in 3 women in America now lives under an abortion ban, with more on the way. Next they’re coming after your birth control.

There are NO abortion bans. Why do you feel it necessary to lie? Why are Democrats registering illegal immigrants to vote?

Someone is gaslighting here,
John Seago, legislative director for Texas Right to Life, described this type of hesitation as “an awful misunderstanding of the law.” Even before the passage of the two bills, existing Texas law stated that the act is not an abortion if it involves the treatment of an ectopic pregnancy — which most commonly occurs when the pregnancy grows in the fallopian tube — or to “remove a dead, unborn child whose death was caused by spontaneous abortion,” he said, pointing to the statute. Another area of Texas law that Seago cited provides an exception to the state’s abortion restrictions if the mother’s life is in danger or she’s at “serious risk of substantial impairment of a major bodily function” unless an abortion is performed.
Trump did not write nor does he enforce any laws in Texas. So Bidens lying again.
If this poor woman is now infertile, its the doctors and hospitals fault, not Texas or the misinterpreted law.

Democrats have no abortion issue unless they lie about “abortion bans”.

Democrats did it.

Donald Trump did this, and is prepared to do more:

Wow pathetic Trump is not a member of the Supreme court. Even the Supreme court did nothing to outlaw abortion it returned it to the states to decide. Hyperbole misinterpretation of facts.

Trump’s not going to be a “member” in the White House, either.

Your tv is gaslighting you about abortion and you just lemming like suck it up.

gregs irrational hate for Trump clouds his vision of reality.

It is all they left has left. Law fare has failed and there are not enough democrat votes to elect biden dog catcher.

Eight of the 10 lowest income states are run by republicans.

All of the most failed states are run by Democrats.

He doesn’t need much gaslighting to promote the left’s lies about abortion. It is ALL THEY HAVE to campaign on. It is pathetic desperation.

He never tires of being made a fool of by falling for the lies, fascinating the level of MK Ultra control.

It’s the Democrat’s fault. Why are they registering illegal immigrants to vote?
