President Donald Trump raised over $1 million per hour and $28.4 million total on June 18, the day of his re-election campaign kick-off, according to Trump campaign spokesman Tim Murtaugh. Some members of the far-right hate group Proud Boys were also spotted marching in Orlando outside the rally.
Despite having been in the White House for more than two years, he portrayed himself as an outsider who wanted to "drain the swamp", as he has described Washington's political establishment and which he said retaliated with a "witch-hunt" - the Russian Federation meddling probe.
Similarly, internal data from the Trump campaign's March polling, obtained by ABC News, shows Biden had a seven-point advantage in Florida in 2020.
The profile calls Trump's 2020 campaign "political machine created to inflame supporters" and "a kind of a perpetual outrage machine".
"The enthusiasm across the country for this president is unmatched and unlike anything we've ever seen", RNC chairwoman Ronna McDaniel boasted on Twittter.
Murtaugh did not immediately respond to INSIDER's request for comment on how many donors gave to Trump, the average donation size from Trump's Tuesday fundraising, and how many donors had given to the campaign for the first time. Of course, Trump never really stopped running.

He said that the offloaded passengers were provided transportation and hotel accommodation. An inquiry into the incident has been launched by PIA.
Formally, the election headquarters trump continued to work after his election victory in November 2016, and two days before the inauguration, trump said that the slogan of the campaign-2016 - Make America Great Again ("let's Make America great again") - will be used in the campaign 2020.
He filed for re-election on January 20, 2017, the day of his inauguration, and held his first 2020 rally in February, 2017, in nearby Melbourne.
With that said, he then officially announced his 2020 campaign. And he has no intention of abandoning that mantle, even if he is the face of the institutions he looks to disrupt.
Now in the move to fast track the same, Donald Trump has been begun on this journey of removing the illegal immigrants which are posing a threat to his country. Biden, who entered the race in April, has not yet filed a quarterly fundraising report but told donors this week that his campaign had raised almost $20 million so far. But those involved in the president's reelection effort believe that his brash version of populism, combined with his mantra to "Drain the Swamp", still resonates, despite his administration's cozy ties with lobbyists and corporations and the Trump family's apparent efforts to profit off the presidency.
Joe Biden is the Democratic presidential front-runner. Bernie Sanders, Sens. Cory Booker of New Jersey and Kirsten Gillibrand of NY, former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke, former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper and several others have expressed their support for impeachment proceedings. Just last month, a Politico/Morning Consult poll found that Trump would lose if the election were held now.
Clarke, other elected officials and immigration advocates, say since taking office, Trump has deported more immigrants than any other president in recent American history.
