Trump fundraising committee raised $30.9mn at close of 2020

WASHINGTON: Former President Donald Trump’s fundraising committee, formed after he lost the November election to Democrat Joe Biden, raised $30.9 million in the final weeks of 2020, according to a disclosure filed on Sunday.

The filing with the Federal Election Commission showed that “Save America,” a Trump leadership PAC, or political action committee, ended the year with just over $31 million in cash.

The size of the haul – taken in from Nov. 24 to Dec. 31 – gives a measure of Trump’s power to influence Republican politics even out of office.

As he faces his second Senate impeachment trial, on a charge of inciting his followers’ deadly storming of the US Capitol on Jan. 6, many congressional Republicans have defended Trump or attacked the impeachment process.
