Donald Trump’s political organization has raised approximately $82 million in the first half of this year and stepped into the second having $102 million in cash reserves. The figures revealed by his team Saturday night, according to Politico, which was the first source that obtained Trump’s fundraising totals.

The former President’s team is scheduled to share the details of his committees’ fundraising and spending to the Federal Election Commission.

The political committees of Donald Trump have obtained $3,2 million worth contributions during the period of six months.

In a statement, Donald Trump again mentioned a “stolen” election and described the donations as signs that millions of Americans “share my outrage and want me to continue to fight for the truth.”

Trump’s fundraising apparatus consists of two political action committees including Save America PAC, a leadership PAC, and the Make America Great Again PAC. The leadership PACs have a cap of $5000 on donations, but the federal decision has led to restrictions concerning the spending of the contributions.

The Make America Great Again PAC’s filing Saturday night revealed the $5 million number as of June 30. There are some famous persons who donated to Trump’s committee: Don Ahern, a businessman, who transferred $1 million, former Georgia Senator Kelly Loeffler with $250,000 and MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell with a $100,000 donation. Lindell supported Trump, claiming that the widespread fraud contributed to Trump’s defeat in the elections.
