Trump fundraising operation pulled in $20M in first three months of 2018

By MAGGIE SEVERNS 04/15/2018 05:03 PM EDT

Donations to Donald Trumpís campaign operation surged to $20 million during the first three months of the year, new campaign finance filings show, in the wake of Republicansí December victory in passing sweeping tax reform legislation.

The total haul for Trumpís 2020 reelection campaign and two groups that let him raise money alongside the Republican National Committee was up nearly $8 million, or 65 percent, from the operationís fundraising in the previous quarter, which covered the end of 2017.

Trumpís campaign alone raised $10 million in the first quarter of 2018, and he had amassed a total of $28 million in his campaign account at the start of April, with more than two years to go before he is on the ballot in November 2020.
....

Trumpís large campaign operation accrues significant costs: The campaign and the two joint fundraising committees together spent more than $650,000 on hats, mugs and other pro-Trump gear for supporters during the first three months of the year.
