Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump sent out his first fundraising email on Tuesday, where he said he would match the donations dollar for dollar throughout the next 48 hours.
“This is the first fundraising email I have ever sent on behalf of my campaign. That’s right. The FIRST ONE,” Trump’s fundraising email read. “And, I’m going to help make it the most successful introductory fundraising email in modern political history by personally matching every dollar that comes in WITHIN THE NEXT 48 HOURS, up to $2 million!”
The email continues:
The Democrats are desperate, and they’re throwing everything they have at me. They just keep failing and losing.
Now they’ve sent out a very nasty email attacking me, all to raise a measly $250,000. They even promise that a group of “all-star Democrats” will match every dollar raised.
They will say and do anything to elect Hillary Clinton, but I am standing in the way.
I’m fighting back against Crooked Hillary and her pathetic cronies, as well as the dishonest liberal media, and I need your help.
We can’t let her back into the White House ever again.
“Let’s show the liberals, the professional pundits, and the Washington establishment that this campaign IS NOT ABOUT ME. It’s a movement of hardworking, patriotic people who want to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN,” Trump concluded.
Trump’s email and fundraising effort comes after the Federal Election Commission’s filing numbers for the month of May revealed he’s drastically behind Hillary Clinton, who has $42 million in the bank for her campaign. Her super PAC also has $52 million.
In contrast, Trump’s campaign only has $1.3 million.
