They have spent $3.9 million and reported have $28.3 million cash on hand.

The joint fundraising committees that benefit Trump's campaign and the Republican National Committee transferred $6.6 million to Trump's campaign in the first quarter.

US President Donald Trump's re-election campaign has raised $US10 million ($12 million) in the first quarter of the 2018, leaving his re-election operation with $US28 million ($35 million) in cash.

Another legal battle the president faces - the alleged 2006 affair with adult film star Stormy Daniels.

The Trump campaign paid another $13,500 to McDermott Will & Emery, a firm that represents Cohen in the ongoing Russian Federation investigations and a newly revealed criminal inquiry. The firm previously received payments from the campaign totaling $30,500 in October and November, an earlier filing shows.

Prosecutors said in a Friday court hearing that Cohen has been the target of a months-long federal investigation in NY, separate from Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe of Russian interference in the USA elections.

In all, Trump's campaign committee and two fundraising committees that jointly raise money with the Republican National Committee - Trump Victory and the Trump Make America Great Again Committee - together raised almost $20.2 million in the first quarter, filings show.

The money was divided up between at least eight different firms and the Trump Corporation, according to an analysis from Buzzfeed. In first quarter of 2018, 61 percent of the direct contributions to his campaign committee came from donations of $200 or less.

Traditionally, incumbent presidents have waited until after their second year in office to begin their re-election campaign.

The campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Mr Trump will stand for re-election in November 2020.

Trump's campaign also paid $93,181 to Harder LLP, which specializes in entertainment law and reputation protection.

In addition to legal fees, he has also used that money to keep a small campaign staff, to fund campaign rallies and to pay for digital advertising focused on his supporters.

Other notable payments from the campaign include $22,000 to Johnny McEntee, the president's former personal aide. McEntee lost his White House job after an investigation found his gambling habits posed a security risk, the Washington Post reported.
