Trump Smashes Fundraising Record, Nets Over $50 Million

( – An April 6th fundraiser in Florida for former President Donald Trump‘s campaign raised “an astounding $50.5 million.”

The record-breaking amount is double that of President Joe Biden’s record $25 million that he raised during an event in March at Radio City Music Hall.

Trump campaign senior advisors Chris LaCivita and Susie Wiles announced the amount raised, adding that the fundraiser held at the home of billionaire investor John Paulson was “an incredible night” for Trump.

In a post on Truth Social, Trump wrote that it was the “Biggest night in Fund Raising of ALL TIME!!!,” adding that it shows people want a change.

Paulson, who hosted the Inaugural Leadership Dinner fundraiser at his home in Palm Beach, said the historic amount raised shows “the enthusiasm” people have for Trump and for “his policies.”

In a statement, Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Whatley and Co-Chairman Lara Trump said the record-breaking fundraiser shows that people “are fed up with Biden’s record of failure.”

Trump campaign spokesperson Danielle Alvarez said it “took three Democrat presidents to raise $25 million” for Biden, while Trump’s record-breaking fundraiser shows the Republican Party is uniting behind Trump.

During the fundraiser, Trump spoke about the economy, the crisis at the southern border, and “the unification of the party,” according to Trump’s former ambassador to Portugal, George Glass.

The fundraiser, held at Paulson’s home near Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate, was Trump’s first since he clinched the Republican presidential nomination. Attendees of the April 6 fundraiser co-hosted by investor Scott Bessent, hedge-fund investor Robert Mercer and his daughter, Rebekah, and casino mogul Phil Ruffin, paid $250,000 and $814,600 per person for the reception and dinner.

Among the 100 guests at the fundraiser were former 2024 Republican candidates South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott, Vivek Ramaswamy, and North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum along with WWE co-founder Linda McMahon, former Sen. Kelly Loeffler, and hotelier Steve Wynn.
