Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, raised $51 million in June for his campaign, an improvement over his May collections but still much less than his Democratic party opponent Hillary Clinton’s June haul.

Of these $51 million, $26 million were raised through digital and small donations. Another $25 million came through 22 fund-raising events throughout the country.

This includes the last week of May, when Trump officially kicked off his fund raising efforts.

According to the Trump campaign, the donation of $26 million was made possible with over 400,000 supporters.

As many as 94 per cent of the supporters donated under $200, the Trump campaign said.

“The first email solicitation, which contained an unprecedented $2 million match from Donald Trump, exceeded our goal, collecting over USD 3 million in contributions in one day,” the campaign said.

In addition, Trump personally contributed $3.8 million to the campaign this month.

“The results from this month show the enthusiastic movement the campaign has created. People want to invest in a better future for America and make America great again! The campaign very much appreciates the broad support,” said the Trump campaign in a statement.

“We just started our fund-raising efforts in the last week of May and we are extremely pleased with the broad-based support in the last five weeks for the Trump Campaign and Trump Victory. We want to thank our many volunteers and contributors that are committed to electing Trump as President in November,” said Steven Mnuchin, Trump for President Finance chairman.

The June collections of Trump campaign saw a dramatic uptick over May when the Trump campaign was able to raise a meagre amount of $3 million and the Republican National Committee raised about $11 million.

In comparison, Clinton raised almost $70 million in June for her campaign and Democratic partners, her campaign announced last week.
