Donald Trump's July fundraising haul is causing worry in Hillary Clinton's campaign, with one staffer asking donors to step up their efforts.

According to Politico, campaign manager Robby Mook emailed top-level Clinton donors Monday morning.

"Donald Trump also had his best fundraising month of the campaign, raising $80 million," Mook wrote in the memo titled "Wake Up Call."

"This was far more than anyone expected — and should be a wake-up call to all Hillary supporters. We must redouble our efforts in the coming weeks."

Trump's campaign pulled in $80 million in July, far more than the $51 million it raised in June; $64 million of the July money came from small donations online.

Clinton, meanwhile, took in nearly $90 million in July — a month that included both of the major parties' national conventions.

"While we are very proud of the more than $469 million our campaign has raised so far, we remain behind the historic pace that President Obama set in 2012, raising $520 million during the same time frame," Mook's email reads, reports Politico.

"With only three months to go, it is critical that we close the gap between President Obama's record-level fundraising and the pace we are currently on."

Trump is trying to continue his fundraising momentum this month, with 21 events planned over 31 days.
