The campaign for the re-election of the American president, Joe Bidenreceived $51 million last April, compared to the Republican donald trumpwhich raised $76 million, making it the first time the former president surpassed his rival in campaign funds raised in a month.

The former president’s campaign was boosted by a record of 50.5 million dollars raised during an event with donors held at the beginning of the month in palm beachFlorida, at the home of Billionaire investor John Paulson. This event was a strong and necessary boost for Trump in the midst of a financial crisis due to the multiple court cases against him.

Trump’s group “Save America” presented, this Monday, a report to the Federal Electoral Commission showing more than $3.3 million in legal expenses over the past month. For its part, the Republican’s campaign explained, in a statement, that the April fundraising was “especially notable considering that he has been confined in a courthouse for almost nine hours a day for the last four weeks fighting against Biden’s trial.

The slip in fundraising for the current president coincides with a series of opinion polls that, with just over five months left until the presidential election, show Biden below trump in voting intention, although the difference is generally within the margin of error.

But the Trump campaign continues to spend on the legal defense of the presumptive presidential candidate now on trial in NYand with open cases for a total of 91 federal and state charges in Florida, Georgia and the D.C.campaign money disclosure documents show.
