"[Donald Trump] has raised a record breaking $24.8M in less than 24 hours for his re-election".

During the event, according to the Post, Biden boasted that his campaign had "raised almost $20 million" - close, but still not in Donald Trump territory, and certainly not a 24-hour haul.

The president retweeted McDaniel's announcement and thanked his supporters Wednesday morning.

The total funds raised were "a combined haul by the campaign and Trump Victory", according to an ABC News reporter, citing a Trump campaign official.

But at another fundraiser, at the Carlyle Hotel on New York's Upper East Side on Tuesday night, Biden asked for support from about 100 prominent Democratic donors and promised he would not "demonize" them for their wealth.

This is Probably Worse Turbulence Than You've Ever Seen on a Plane
Gaskell stated the departing airplane from EuroAirport to Pristina used to be delayed by one hour as a outcome of the incident. At least one unlucky flight attendant happened to be on her feet rather than buckled in at the time the turbulence struck.

Washington Examiner quoted Trump 2020 memos in an article saying the campaign wanted to raise $7 million yesterday in order to surpass the initial fundraising numbers of his Democratic challengers.

The $24.8 million dwarfed the $6.3 million former veep Joe Biden took in during the 24 hours after he announced his White House run. Bernie Sanders reported US$5.9 million. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) raised $12 million, while O'Rourke brought in $9.4 million.

Trump officially launched his re-election bid at a rally in Orlando, Florida, on June 18.

The fundraising figures come as Mr. Trump's campaign manager, Brad Parscale, claims Mr. Trump would win the 2020 presidential race in an "electoral landslide" as of today, despite internal and independent polls that show Vice President Joe Biden and other Democrats easily defeating Mr. Trump.

At a $2,800-a-plate fundraiser in New York City on Monday night, Biden said his campaign had already raised almost $20 million, mostly from small donors. "Our economy is the envy of the world", Trump said.
