Saturday morning, the Clinton campaign sent out another email asking for another $1 donation, saying they’re getting very concerned over the massive number of small-dollar donors who are supporting Donald Trump, netting him $70 million just last month.
According to the email, Clinton has amassed a total of 2.3 million supporters over the past year – but Trump is “gaining on us fast, and he’s not slowing down.”
They’re in a panic that after only a couple months of fundraising, the Trump campaign already has 2.1 million donors who will stop at nothing to see him elected.
Below is the desperate email from Hillary Clinton’s campaign finance director… right after this new campaign video from Donald Trump:

Subject: re: the number of Trump’s supporters
Trump’s campaign announced this week that about $70 million of what they raised in August came from small-dollar donors — people who can donate again and again and again. And these folks are now part of a swelling Trump team of 2.1 million donors.
I’m going to be honest: That’s a bigger number than any of us realized.
For the record, we have 2.3 million supporters on our team — and we’re very proud of that. But we’ve been building this crew for well over a year. Trump started fundraising in a serious, wide-reaching way only a couple of months ago. He’s gaining on us fast, and he’s not slowing down.
With the kind of surging small-dollar support Trump now has behind him, he can consistently raise well over $70-$80 million each month just from these people.
And make no mistake, Trump can still write himself a big check whenever he needs. And of course there are untold sums of super PAC money spent attacking Hillary every day.
But we can account for all that. The thing that is starting to make me lose sleep is the money Trump is raising from millions of people who will stop at nothing to see him elected president.
We’ve had a couple of good days lately from a fundraising standpoint — and that’s thanks solely to the dedication and focus of this team. But if we step back and look at the whole month of September, we’re still behind on our overall goal. And that trend is our reality while Trump is supercharging his campaign.
This can’t continue.
With 59 days to go until Election Day, we need every single person on our team to be invested, because that’s where Trump’s people are — committed, passionate, and stepping up more and more. We can’t afford to let them beat us in the last sprint of this race. Can you chip in for the first time to prove that we’re stronger and we’re going to win this? We’ll send you a free sticker as a personal thank you:
Thank you so much — I know we can count on you.
