Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says Donald Trump needs to raise much more money, quickly, if he expects to win the presidential campaign against Democrat Hillary Clinton.

Asked on ABC's "This Week" whether the presumptive GOP nominee can win with the paltry fundraising he reported last month, McConnell says, "No...he needs to catch up and catch up fast."

Campaign finance reports show Trump entered June with just $1.3 million in the bank. Clinton's war chest at the same time was $42 million.

Trump has said his fund-raising will show improvement for the next reporting period.

McConnell also refused to say whether Trump is qualified to be president. And he suggested he doesn't expect the GOP platform to reflect Trump's ideas.
