The Trump campaign has been sending out fundraising texts to supporters with the goal of raising $1 million. A text sent out on Friday afternoon put the fundraising haul at more than $1.1 million, just a day after the release of the report.

“Sorry Trump haters. The biggest waste of money witch hunt in history is finally over,” the text says. “The attacks and lies will keep coming heading into 2020. That’s why we need to fight back bigger and stronger than ever before.”

The Trump campaign raised $30 million in the first quarter of 2019, or as much as the top two Democratic presidential contenders combined.

The president ended the quarter with more than $40 million in the bank.

The Mueller report did not find evidence of a criminal conspiracy between Trump officials and Russia. The special counsel detailed 10 episodes it examined as part of an obstruction of justice investigation, but decided neither to implicate nor exonerate the president on that front.

Trump has called the report a “complete and total exoneration.”
