    Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump doubled the funds he received from donors last month, although he is still far behind his Democratic rival in terms of funding, new financial reports showed.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Federal Election Commission published financial filings of the running presidential candidates for May late Monday, which showed Clinton with a total of $42 million in cash on hand.

    The Democratic presidential contender made $26 million in May, compared to Trump’s $3.1 million in total contributions. The real estate mogul began June with slightly less than $1.3 million on hand.

    Trump said previously that his presidential election campaign was mostly self-funded. He held several fundraisers earlier this year, saying he was not going to use personal funds for the general election.
