Trump announces $18 million haul in fundraising push on day after debate

"I just learned that we're only $1 MILLION away from raising a record amount of money in a 24-hour period", reads the letter, which requests donations of $100 or less.

'It's a lot! $18 million in one day, ' Trump told a crowd in Melbourne Florida Tuesday night.

Can you believe it?

Clinton has consistently led in fundraising for the general election campaign and maintained that edge in the campaign's most recent fundraising disclosure reports, finishing August with $68.4 million in the bank. "And we're still going", he added. In an editorial published Tuesday night, the board wrote that Clinton, not Donald Trump, understands the "challenges the United States faces domestically and internationally demand a steady hand, a cool head, and the ability to think carefully before acting".

Meanwhile, talking to reporters on his campaign trail, Trump said he did very well in the debate. Trump has often boasted about running a lean operation compared to Clinton, whose campaign began the month of September with approximately $152 million cash on hand when combined with the campaign's joint accounts.

But it's become an increasing political tactic to embellish selective details about fundraising - especially small-donor fundraising - to enhance the appearance of grass-roots momentum at critical moments of a campaign.

Trump's fundraising, fueled largely by small donors, has climbed steadily since he began fundraising in earnest at the end of May.

"As a result of Donald Trump's huge debate win last night, we had a massive fundraising day bringing in more than United States dollars 18 million. With this kind of energy and generous support behind us, we are going to have President Donald J. Trump in the White House".

"We have a very high collectability rate on any pledges we get", he said. The Trump campaign divided up major fundraisers into teams to help dial up others for contributions.
