Trump claimed ‘more cash than any campaign in the history of politics’
Good news is that my campaign has perhaps more cash than any campaign in the history of politics- b/c I stand 100% behind everything we do.

FEC filings released late Monday indicate that not only was Trump’s tweet not accurate, but his campaign actually stands out for how cash poor it is. Trump raised $3.1 million in May — the month he vanquished his last Republican presidential rivals and became the presumptive nominee — and entered June with just $3.1 million on hand. Compare that with the $27 million Hillary Clinton raised and the $42 million she had in the bank entering this month.
