President Donald Trump's presidential campaign hopes to raise $1 billion dollars toward his second-term race, senior campaign adviser Lara Trump said Friday.
"We're light years ahead of where we were two-and-a-half years ago," Trump, the president's daughter-in-law, told Fox News' "Fox and Friends," where she participated in an interview along with her husband, Eric Trump. "I would like to say we were very grassroots in the 2016 campaign, meaning none of us had any idea of what we were doing."
But for the 2020 campaign, "we're very streamlined," said Trump. "In reality, we'll let the Democrats battle it out, see who their candidate is. We're not worried about [anyone] we've seen get in the race."
She said currently, the campaign directly has raised "about $60 million, but combined with the RNC we're close to $200 million."
Meanwhile, the couple discussed comments made earlier by Attorney General William Barr, when he said spying on Trump's 2016 campaign did occur.
"It did occur, right?" Eric Trump said. "The problem with these guys, they go so deep they found themselves."
But with Barr, "you have a grown up in the room, who calls out this nonsense because, you know, my father went around during the campaign, talked about the deep state," he added. "The deep state, guys, does exist. By the way it still exists, but it does exist and did exist."
He also ridiculed Democratic lawmakers for shifting their focus away from Russia and to healthcare.
"You've been talking about Russia for the last three years, all day, every day," he said. "All of sudden it comes out the whole thing was a hoax...this is why they're going to lose in 2020."
