The latest fundraising haul brings the campaign's 2019 fundraising total to $143 million. The campaign is beginning the new year with $102.7 million in cash on hand, according to Reuters. 

Trump's reelection campaign and the Republican National Committee brought in a combined $125 million in the third quarter, but the fourth-quarter haul was raised by the president's reelection campaign alone. 


The Democratic-controlled House voted to impeach Trump last month. The president has campaigned on the issue and brought in more than $10 million in donations in the days after the vote. 

The president has kept up an active campaign presence since he took office in 2017, holding a number of rallies across the country. 

He filed for reelection the same day he was sworn in as president. 

Trump's latest fundraising numbers come as his potential Democratic opponents prepare to compete in the early nominating states of Iowa and New Hampshire.
