Donald Trump raised roughly $90 million in the month of August for his presidential campaign after bringing in $80 million in July.

The fundraising total doesn’t specify how much was donated by the New Yorker himself.

His rival, Hillary Clinton raised roughly $143 million in August and has continuously raised more than the Republican nominee.

“Clinton has also built a vastly larger campaign payroll, spending millions more than Trump to hire staff around the country that will be the backbone of her efforts to get people to turn out and vote,” reports Reuters.
