President Donald Trump is defending his reelection campaign's fundraising, saying in a new interview that he doesn't want to rely on big donors to finance his bid for a second term in office.

During an appearance on Fox News Wednesday night, Trump didn't seem worried that Democrat Joe Biden, his November opponent, raised in excess of $154 million more than Trump did in August.

"We have a lot of money coming in in small donors," Trump told host Sean Hannity. "I haven't been heavy on big donors because I don't want to call them. When you call big donors, you sort of put yourself in a very compromising position. When somebody puts up a lot of money, you're in a compromised position. Whether you say it, whether you don't say it, it doesn't matter.

"What I like are the small donors."

Trump also responded to a report from earlier this week that said his campaign is short on cash by reiterating a point he made on Tuesday.

"If I needed extra [campaign money], I'll put it up myself," he told Hannity.
