The extremist left is steaming mad that SoulCycle founder Stephen Ross and Miami Dolphins owner Joe Farrell hosted fundraisers for Donald Trump in the last few days, but when they heard Trump raised over $12 million for his campaign, they really lost it.
According to the Washington Post, Trump raised the incredible amount at the two fundraisers in the tony Hamptons this weekend.
Trump retweeted Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, who wrote: “Thanks to the unhinged mob on the left, @realDonaldTrump raised $12M today, $2M more than originally expected. The support for our President is unprecedented and growing!”
Before leaving for New York on Friday morning, Trump defended Ross.
“He’s a great friend of mine; he’s a very successful guy. We were competitors but friends in real estate in New York in the old days,” Trump told reporters outside the White House. “He’s probably more inclined to be a liberal if you want to know the truth, but he likes me, he respects me.”
The left has been working overtime to launch boycott efforts of SoulCyle and Ross’ other businesses. But it didn’t stop him for holding his Trump fundraiser.
The price tag for attending to attend the fundraisers ranged up to $250,000. And the high cost didn’t stop the rich and powerful from attending.
Despite the liberal media’s attempt to destroy him, President Trump and the R.N.C. have already raised $105 million in the second quarter. According to the left-wing New York Times, that means Trump is on track to having even more campaign cash than he did in 2016.
Small donors (by that they mean regular Americans) were up, too:
Trump campaign officials said they received 725,000 individual donations online, with supporters giving an average of $48 — small-donor enthusiasm that was unprecedented in Republican politics, according to a committee official, who noted it was the first time the Republican National Committee attracted a larger share of donations under $200 than the Democratic National Committee.
So, it appears that the base has no intention of straying from the president for 2020.
