Following Monday’s debate, media pundits were quick to analyze every word spoken to determine a winner, who would receive a boost in the polls and what impact it would have on the election.
If donations are any indication of a successful debate, then Donald Trump clearly wins this round. In the 24 hours that followed the debate, the Trump team reports they received a massive $18 million dollars in donations. Several grassroots organizations led the way in collecting donations, as recognized by the Donald Trump for President website.
Here is Trump’s official press release:
