Trump's campaign spent a total of $3.9 million through the end of March, with $834,000 going to eight law firms and the Trump Corp. for legal expenses, according to the documents.

Trump chose - unlike their predecessors - to begin to actively engage in fundraising at the beginning of his first term.

After his re-election campaign in 2017 has left 22 million dollars in cash.

The campaign paid two firms that are representing Michael Cohen, Trump's personal attorney, in the lawsuit over a nondisclosure agreement with an adult entertainment star who claims she had an affair with Trump in 2006. That was a sharp drop from the previous quarter, when the campaign paid the firm almost $215,000.

The GAO rejected the EPA's justification, calling it "inconsistent with the plain reading" of the federal law. Previous EPA chiefs did not use a secured phone booth in their office to run the agency.

Using campaign funds to pay for the president's mounting legal fees related to Daniels and the Russian Federation investigation means that the money small-dollar donors are giving to the president's campaign isn't all going toward traditional reelection efforts like ads, campaign staff payroll, and fundraising.

More than 20 percent of Donald Trump's 2020 presidential campaign spending has gone to legal fees so far this year. Former President Barack Obama had been in office more than two years before he headlined his first re-election fundraiser.

In addition to raising money for his own campaign, Trump has also collected funds for joint efforts with the Republican National Committee, which uses that money to help congressional candidates. All told, the $20.2 million raised by the three committees is up significantly from the $12.5 million raised in the previous quarter.

The Trump committee also paid almost $1.7 million for digital consulting and online advertising services to Parscale Strategy LLC, the firm of Brad Parscale, Trump's 2020 campaign manager. Recall that during the 2016 campaign, Parscale was in charge of overseeing the campaign's digital media strategy and its online fundraising campaigns. McEntee was recently forced out of the White House after security issues related to gambling and was then quickly hired by the campaign.
