President Donald Trump matched the top two Democrat fundraising totals combined during the first quarter of 2019.
Vox reports: “Trump raised $30.3 million in the first quarter of this year — a number roughly equal to the amount raised by the top two fundraising Democrats, Bernie Sanders ($18.2 million) and Kamala Harris ($12 million), combined.
In an unusual move, Trump officially announced his reelection campaign just days after he was inaugurated, and it shows in his fundraising numbers. According to the New York Times, at this point in the 2012 presidential election cycle, Barack Obama — who launched his reelection campaign on April 4, 2011 — had less than $2 million in the bank. Trump, by contrast, currently has a war chest of $41 million.
Trump’s strong fundraising is also reflected in the numbers for the Republican National Committee, which raised $45.8 million in the first quarter. The Democratic National Committee lags well behind that pace and was $4.6 million in debt at the end of January. When Trump’s fundraising is combined with the RNC’s pro-Trump efforts, he has a total of $82 million.”

President Trump is on an epic winning streak since Robert Mueller concluded that he did not collude with the Russians, and the focus of Russia-related investigations shifted to the Democrats who cooked up the “Operation Crossfire Hurricane” plot to frame Trump.

A new “Battleground Poll” released Georgetown Institute of Politics and Public Service reveals that the majority of Americans approve of President Donald J. Trump’s job performance when it comes to the economy.
The poll of 1,000 Americans reveals that 58 per cent of Americans approve of President Trump’s job on the economy, while 57 per cent also approve of the president’s role in creating new jobs for the United States.
It also reveals that voter enthusiasm is already reaching fever pitch. Voters are already as excited to vote as they previously have been in the weeks and days before a major election with 82 per cent of voters saying they are already ready to vote..
Interestingly, while the poll reveals that President Trump is gradually increasing his overall approval rating, and is excelling with voters on specific issues, most voters do not feel the same when it comes to members of Congress.
More respondents trust President Trump to handle jobs, the economy, national security, and taxes than they trust Democrats in Congress.
Republican Congressmen enjoy similar numbers of approval. More respondents trust Republicans on issues including jobs, the economy, and national security than they do their Democrat counterparts.
Additionally, 67 per cent of respondents have an unfavorable opinion of Congress as a whole. Only 25 per cent of respondents have a favorable opinion of Congress.
It is also worth noting that the poll discovered President Trump’s approval and disapproval ratings have remained virtually constant since he joined the 2016 presidential race in June of 2015.

Unlike other sports leagues, the UFC has uniquely positioned itself by not adopting the woke antics of leagues such as the NFL and NBA.
Masvidal is a veteran of MMA promotions such as Strikeforce, Bellator, and the UFC. He is currently fighting under the UFC banner and holds a record of 35-14. According to MMA website Sherdog, he is currently ranked in 4th place . Similarly, he is ranked in 4th place according to the UFC’s rankings.
The Welterweight fighter currently owns the record for the fastest knockout in UFC history, after he knocked out Ben Askren with a flying knee five seconds into the first round. Additionally, Masvidal won the “BMF” championship against Nate Diaz in 2019 after he battered Diaz and forced a technical knockout via doctor stoppage.
Masvidal fought current welterweight champion Kamaru Usman on less than a week’s notice for the UFC Welterweight Championship at UFC 251, after he replaced the original challenger Gilbert Burns, who tested positive for the Wuhan virus. Before the fight took place, Masvidal signed a multi-fight contract with the UFC. Masvidal ended up losing the fight via unanimous decision.
Nevertheless, the card reportedly netted 1.3 million pay-per-view buys in America.
