President Donald Trump’s White House senior adviser and daughter, Ivanka Trump, reportedly broke former President Barack Obama’s single-day fundraising record.
On her Austin, Texas stop last September, the younger Trump reportedly raised US$4.5 million in one day, beating the US$3.8 million single-day fundraising record of Obama in 2014, according to The Washington Examiner.

The first daughter headlined at least 32 events since August, nine of them are fundraisers to support her father’s re-election bid where she has raised more than US$35 million.
In California this week, Ivanka Trump gathered over US$10 million from the Democrat held state in a single day.
As the second-most requested surrogate and fundraiser after President Trump, she earlier stepped in for her father at two virtual fundraisers while the President earlier battled COVID-19. She raised US$10 million at the said events.
“Our donors were thrilled to hear directly from Ivanka Trump about the policies her father has delivered on and his vision for the next four years,” Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, who has traveled with the younger Trump tweeted.

As an unpaid White House adviser, Ivanka Trump focuses on the education and economic empowerment of women and their families as well as job creation and economic growth through workforce development, skills training and entrepreneurship.
Ivanka Trump’s campaign events are largely considered to be tamer than President Trump’s rallies and directed mostly to female voters. She would usually take questions in her events while providing insights on her father’s various plans and programs that would benefit women.
Her involvement in more fundraisers came at a crucial time when the Trump campaign was reportedly having a cash crunch in the final months ahead of the election.
President Trump had a US$63.1 million cash on hand in early October, while Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s campaign had US$177.3 million.
The first daughter also helped campaign and raise funds for her father in the 2016 election cycle where she reportedly raised an average of US$2 million per fundraiser that time. Her current average, however, has increased to US$3.5 million per event.
