President Donald Trump speaks to supporters during a rally at the Van Andel Arena on March 28, 2019 in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

President Donald Trump’s 2020 campaign claimed Sunday it has raised more than $30 million in the first quarter of 2019, according to the Associated Press.

That brings the president’s total money raised to $40.8 million — a whopping figure when compared to his opponents. Sen. Bernie Sanders was the top fundraiser of 2020 Democratic candidates, with more than $18 million raised in the first quarter. Sen. Kamala Harris came second with $12 million.

Meanwhile, the Republican National Committee raised $46 million, and the AP reports the full Trump re-election has $82 million in the bank already.

As AP notes, Trump’s haul is “an unprecedented war chest for an incumbent president this early in a campaign.”

President Barack Obama, for comparison, had less than $2 million cash at this point of the 2012 campaign, per the AP.

The report notes that the Trump campaign claimed nearly 99% of the donations were of $200 or less.
