Washington | Hillary Clinton begins July with USD 44 million in cash to continue hammering Republican Donald Trump in the race for the White House.

The presumptive Democratic nominee raised USD 40.5 million in June. Her campaign announced the numbers today. Clinton has spent far more than Trump building up voter contact operations and beginning to advertise ahead of the November election.

Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee, has not disclosed his June numbers. One Trump email solicitation claims he raised USD 11 million in a few days and set a goal of raising another USD 10 million by today.

Trump paid for most of his primary bid with personal loans and has been slow to begin fundraising. He landed just over USD 3 million from donors in May, compared to Clinton’s more than USD 26 million.
