RNC Chair Romney McDaniel: 'Our Base Loves the President'

President Donald Trump has helped raise over $75 million for the Republican Party in his first six months in office, according to the chairwoman for the Republican National Committee.

"Our base loves the president," RNC chair Ronna Romney McDaniel said on Fox News Wednesday morning.

"This was a change election, they sent a change agent to Washington and Americans were saying, 'we need somebody who's going to go fight for us, we need somebody who's going to lobby for us, because we don't have the special interests in Washington.' And that's what they saw in President Trump, and he needs partners in that. I think the Senate and House are going to work with him, they need to, but President Trump's not giving up."

"The president is somebody who absolutely is an asset when it comes to fundraising," she told the Associated Press, explaining that the party relied heavily on Trump's appeal with small donors.

The GOP more than doubled the amount raised by the Democratic National Committee by this point in President Barack Obama's first term. A fundraiser at Trump International Hotel hosted by the president in June raised $10 million for the party.

"The president likes the fact that the party is structured to help his agenda, and there's not a question that this RNC is 100 percent loyal to him," Brian Ballard, a top fundraiser for the GOP, told AP. "It's not like the RNC he inherited as the party's nominee; it's his now."
