Major media outlets jump on the news that Donald Trump’s campaign chest is only $3.1 million. ABC News, NBC News, Washington Post and New York Times highlighted the small war chest of Trump’s on their home pages:
ABC News: “Hillary Clinton Clobbers Trump in Fundraising”
NBC News: “Donald Trump vs. Hillary Clinton Campaigns: Filings Show Huge Fundraising Gap”
New York Times: “Donald Trump Starts Summer With Crippling Money Deficit”
Washington Post: “Trump entered June with just $3.1 million in the bank, while Clinton sat on $42 million war chest”
Donald Trump is already at a disadvantage in the polls, which haven’t been very accurate to begin with in this election cycle, but that big of a campaign war chest deficit is very concerning.
