House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and former President Barack Obama have joined a 2020 “unity” movement in an attempt to defeat President Trump in 2020.
Fresh off the House’s impeachment vote of the president, Nancy Pelosi, and Barack Obama have penned a fundraising letter for the Democratic Unity Fund.
The goal of the letter is to raise millions of dollars that the Democrats can use in their efforts to defeat President Trump, maintain Democratic control of the House, and turn the Republican Senate blue.
“We all know what’s at stake in this election. Right now, we have a president who clearly has no respect for our Constitution, our democracy, or the rule of law. Every day he makes more false promises while his policies continue to hurt hardworking Americans in every corner of our country. We simply cannot afford four more years of a Donald Trump presidency,”
“That’s why President Obama and I are proud to work with the DNC to ensure that our future nominee and Democratic candidates running for every level of office have the resources they will need to win back the White House, flip the Senate, and hold our valuable House majority,”
President Trump’s 2020 Campaign has little to fear after raising $46 Million in the final Quarter of 2019 which ran between October 1 and December 31.
Despite being impeached by the Democrat-led House in mid-December, Trump’s campaign ended the year with $102.7 million cash on hand.
The amount only represents fundraising for Donald J. Trump for President, Inc. and does not include finances raised by the Republican National Committee (RNC) or any other joint fundraising committees.
Brad Parscale, the manager for Trump 2020 campaign, said in a statement emailed to Newsweek:
“President Trump’s unprecedented fundraising is testament to his wide grassroots support and his stellar record of achievement on behalf of the American people,”
“Democrats and the media have been in a sham impeachment frenzy and the President’s campaign only got bigger and stronger with our best fundraising quarter this cycle,”
“The President’s war chest and grassroots army make his re-election campaign an unstoppable juggernaut.”
