Trump uses Oval Office speech to raise money for reelection

Dec 2015
Before his speech yesterday, Trump sent an email/text to his supporters asking them to listen to his speech and immediately donate $500,00 NOW--TODAY. Trump states:
'That's why I want to do something so HUGE, even Democrats and the Fake News won't be able to ignore,' Trump writes. 'We need to raise $500,000 in ONE DAY.'

'Get on the 'Official Secure the Border Fund' list my team sends me' after the speech, Trump encourages people.
'I wouldn't be speaking to you tonight if this wasn't one of the most critical times in the history of our country. I need you to step up,' Trump notes in the email.
The email pleads with people to donate $5 by 9 p.m., which is when Trump's speech starts.

In other words, let's show the Democrats that we mean business and BTW, I'm running in 2020. ( I still don't think he'll run.)
