A statement released to the press about Donald Trump's June fundraising numbers left some media outlets confused about exactly how much money the presumptive GOP nominee has actually raised, Talking Points Memo reports
boasted $26 million brought in from donors, though it was unclear how much was intended for Trump's campaign and how much for the national party and state parties. It also added Trump's own personal contribution to bring the total to $55 million.
But at least one area included money raised during the last week of May.
"We have no idea from this how much money he actually raised for Trump's campaign committee," campaign finance expert Brett Kappel told Talking Points Memo.
"The way the release is written makes it difficult to determine precisely how much Trump raised and for which committees and during which time period," election law expert and UC Irvine School of Law Professor Rick Hasen said. "So, we'll have to wait for the official FEC report before we know for sure what the money figures actually look like."
The Federal Elections Commission report is not due until later this month.
TPM also noted that the statement did not say how much cash on hand the campaign had going into July. The small amount available at the end of May worried his supporters and top party members, TPM notes.
