Taken together, that adds up to a normal take of almost $1.6 million every week for Trump’s political mechanical assembly. In the initial six-and-a-half-long stretches of his mission, Trump raised almost $1.5 million every week — sums that saw his mission searching for a lift, News detailed in January.
