Trump breaks record with eye-popping fundraiser haul: ‘People are just wanting change’

Presumptive Republican nominee Donald J. Trump scored big in the fundraising arms race between himself and President Joe Biden, raking in a record-breaking $50.5 million in one night.

The Saturday event for the former president at the Palm Beach, FL home of billionaire mogul John Paulson, a $250,000-a-ticket affair that drew other heavy hitters to the “Inaugural Leadership Dinner,” showed despite his myriad of issues with Democrat lawfare, that Trump is seen as a good bet to return to the White House.

“People are just wanting change,” Trump – who was joined by his glamorous wife Melania said before the event. “Rich people want it. Poor people want it, everybody wants change.”

“This has been some incredible evening before it even starts because people, they wanted to contribute to a cause of making America great again and that’s what’s happened. We’re gonna make America great again…”

Among those reported to have attended were Bigelow Aerospace Founder Robert Bigelow, former commerce secretary Wilbur Ross, and casino magnate Steve Wynn. Joining Trump were two men who could have important spots in his administration: Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) and former GOP presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy.

“It’s clearer than ever that we have the message, the operation, and the money to propel President Trump to victory on November,” Team Trump said in a statement.

The event shattered the one-day record recently set by Biden who raised $26 million at a soiree at Radio City Music Hall in New York City where he schmoozed with high rollers along with former Democrat presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton at the star-studded bash that featured late-night leftist Stephen Colbert and morbidly obese pop star Lizzo.

Biden’s fundraiser drew criticism for taking place at the same time as the wake of slain NYPD officer Jonathan Diller, a stark contrast between the two leaders.

“Today, the Trump campaign and Republican National Committee (RNC) announced that President Trump’s Palm Beach dinner will raise over $50.5 million – smashing every fundraising record in history for a Republican or Democrat,” the RNC said in a statement.

“This comes after Bidens’ desperate New York event took three presidents to raise just $25 million, and as the Trump campaign and RNC’s small dollar fundraising program continues to grow each month,” the RNC stated.

“While Donald Trump has been busy awarding himself golf trophies at Mar-a-Lago and palling around with billionaires, Joe Biden has been crisscrossing the nation connecting with voters and outlining his vision to grow our economy from the bottom up and the middle out,” huffed DNC Chair Jaime Harrison in a statement.

“The success of tonight’s event is proving what we already know: Americans are fed up with Biden’s record of failure, from the open southern border and sky-high inflation to the migrant crime crisis that has made everyone less safe,” said new RNC Chairman Michael Whatley and RNC Co-Chair Lara Trump.
