Trump's Political Action Committees (PACs) have raised an incredible $82M in the first half of the year 2021. This puts his total political war chest at just over $102M, which is a new record.
Trump in Mar. 2021 had previously reached out to his supporters, telling them "no more money for RINOs", and it appears they have taken his suggestion to donate directly to his PACs to heart.
According to Axios, the money came from an even more impressive 3.2M individual contributions made during the period from Jan. 1 and Jun. 30 2021. This works out to an average contribution of just over $25.
Trump's major PACs are "Save America" and "Make America Great Again", along with that used to be his campaign fund, which was legally made into a PAC.
Perhaps even more astonishing is the fact that Trump raised all this money while being shut out of major social media. Twitter famously even banned an account that was not his for merely quoting him.
Trump has not pronounced on whether he plans to run again for the office of President in the year 2024. It is also not clear how much money may be used for purposes such as funding Trump-friendly candidates in Congress.
As of this writing, however, it is clear that the majority of the money has yet to be spent.
