Major News Outlets Cover Trump’s Small War Chest

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 [1]: “Hillary Clinton Clobbers Trump in Fundraising”

NBC News [2]: “Donald Trump vs. Hillary Clinton Campaigns: Filings Show Huge Fundraising Gap”

New York Times [3]: “Donald Trump Starts Summer With Crippling Money Deficit”

Washington Post [4]: “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.
