Just in time!
The Trump campaign on Thursday during the debate received it’s biggest online donation payday yet.
With over 26 million dollars donated in less than 24 hours, Thursday’s online donation beat the Trump campaign’s previous donation record by 30%.
Most of the money generated from the online donation will go towards campaigning in Minnesota in an ad campaign.
Trump lost Minnesota in 2016 by 45,000 votes, so the extra cash will definitely be an advantage and could help flip Minnesota to vote red this November.
🚨 Last night was the BEST online fundraising night EVER for President Trump's campaign, raising $26 MILLION in just one day. https://t.co/569K5MQcP2

Trump campaign manager Bill Stepien just said on a press call that yesterday was the campaign's biggest online fundraising day ever, better than any day in 2016.
He added Biden talking about transitioning away from oil “put the nail in the coffin” in PA and likely in OH and MN.

Fox News didn’t remain silent and had these details to add:
President Trump’s re-election campaign is showcasing a fundraising record they set around Thursday’s second debate between the president and Democratic nominee Joe Biden.
The campaign, the Republican National Committee (RNC) and their joint fundraising arms hauled in a combined $26 million around the final presidential debate, the campaign said Friday.
Campaign manager Bill Stepien announced the news on a conference call with reporters, describing the haul as “our biggest online fundraising day ever.” The campaign, in a separate email, spotlighted that “October is already Trump Victory’s largest online fundraising month ever.”
The final presidential debate before the November 3 elections gave President Trump’s campaign their best night of fundraising of 2020, Trump campaign manager @BillStepien said today. More here: https://t.co/KhWcrybvon

The Washington Times covered the story too:
President Trump’s reelection team raised a record $26 million Thursday night around the final presidential debate, giving the president a much-needed cash infusion in the final 10 days of the race.
The Trump campaign and the Republican National Committee said it was their largest digital fundraising day ever, raising 30 percent more and “reactivating” 20 percent more past donors than previous debates.
“We are the campaign with momentum,” campaign manager Bill Stepien said.
Trump previously in a rally said he could be the world’s greatest fundraiser but he rather not accept big donations from Wall Street because then they would ask favors in return.
It’s great having a President that is able to fundraise without being bribed at the same time.
