Cashing in on international relations, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton has successfully held 34 fundraisers in countries abroad and has four more lined up in the coming weeks, according to The Washington Times.

Donald Trump, on the other hand, has held no foreign fundraising events.

Clinton has surpassed fundraiser records of President Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney held in 2012 combined, according to the report. The tally was released from the non-partisan Sunlight Foundation.

The record number of events indicates Clinton's popularity and foreign connections, which she has gained through her wide network — as U.S. senator, secretary of state, former first lady and the Clinton Foundation.

Though the events are held in different countries, only U.S. citizens or green card holders living abroad can actually donate to White House campaigns.

Campaign finance experts believe Clinton is experienced in reaching out to her connections overseas, in a way no other candidate has explored.

"The volume of Clinton's fundraisers is unprecedented," Drew Doggett, who looks after political fundraisers for the Sunlight Foundation, told the Times. "We have not seen this tour de force, kind of exploring the bounds of how many fundraisers you can hold."
