They cited a Federal Election Commission report in their pile-up. The 823 members of Clinton's election campaign/Clinton Foundation scam sent out word and the lefty press picked up on it. Naturally, whatever the left reports as gospel, the Never Trump writers repeat.
Here were the facts as reported by the New York Times:
Donald J. Trump enters the general election campaign laboring under the worst financial and organizational disadvantage of any major party nominee in recent history, placing both his candidacy and his party in political peril.
Mr. Trump began June with just $1.3 million in cash on hand, a figure more typical for a campaign for the House of Representatives than the White House. He trailed Hillary Clinton, who raised more than $28 million in May, by more than $41 million, according to reports filed late Monday night with the Federal Election Commission.Of course. By and large, he self-funded his nomination campaign with a $43 million "loan" to himself which he wrote of in May.
Left out of the equation is the large, clunky staff and hangers on that Clinton's campaign must finance. She needs money. Now. More. More. More. Munch, munch, munch.
Today, Matea Gold of the Washington Post reported:
Donald Trump raised more than $26 million through online and mail solicitations in June and another $25 million at events with the Republican National Committee, his campaign announced Wednesday, a hefty haul that his allies hope will put to rest anxieties in the party about his fundraising prowess.
The combined $51 million falls short of the $68.5 million that Democratic contender Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party collected in June, which included $40.5 million she raised directly for her campaign. But it was the biggest monthly take by far for the presumptive GOP presidential nominee, who did not begin to hold fundraising events until late May. And it suggests Trump has the ability to quickly inject large sums of money into his campaign coffers by tapping into the fervor of his supporters.Oh, he loaned his campaign another $5 million. So much for him being broke. I will update readers in a later post on how they spin it.
I see the press is missing the story on the general election just like they did the nomination process.
