Day 471: 9/2/20

If you have a Trump Gold card or a Trump Platinum card, you’re now obsolete. It’s time to whip out your Trump Diamond card…


For all new readers: Welcome! I am currently on the mailing lists of Joe Biden and Donald Trump, though I have previously been on the mailing lists of 28 Democratic candidates! This blog breaks down recent emails with charts and excerpts. If you already know all of this, feel free to skip to the next chart!

It took some time for the Trump emails to kick in, so I started officially tracking his list on July 7. I have been tracking Biden’s for longer, but I will start comparing them as of July 7. All of these emails are going to a new email, and I have not donated, filled out surveys, signed petitions, or otherwise interacted with either candidate’s emails.

The rules I try to follow for the various categories are laid out in The Framework.

Both campaigns are up.

Donald Trump sent out a massive 11 emails on Wednesday, while Joe Biden outdid himself with 5.

So different

Their tones could not be more different. Biden was humbled and overwhelmed by the $364.5 million fundraising haul he pulled in in the month of August.

Trump did not mention how much he brought in, but he had an opinion on how Biden made his money.

In August, together, we raised $364.5 million. That figure blows me away.

And we raised it the right way, from people across the country stepping up to own a piece of this campaign, investing in the future we want to see for our kids and grandkids.

From the very start of August, the campaign had an energy that set us up for this historic milestone. And I wanted to share a few more important numbers with you, because this really means a lot to me:

-- 95% of all donations were from grassroots supporters, folks like yourself chipping in to emails like this.
-- More than 1.5 million supporters stepped up and made their first donation in August, and I’m proud to share we’re now more than 4 million donors strong.
-- Over $205 million, or 57% of the money we raised, came from online donations, from people like you, chipping in $5, $10, $20 at a time. This makes August the best month for online fundraising in political history.
More than anything, these numbers humble me. Even in a global recession, working families set aside some money to power this campaign, and a little bit added up in a big way.
From Joseph R. Biden, Jr.

I need your help right now Amy.

LIBERAL MEGA DONORS MAXED OUT contributions to Sleepy Joe and Phony Kamala Harris last month. They brought in $364 MILLION in August alone.

I’ll never be intimidated by these Radical Socialists and their dirty MEGA DONOR MONEY, but I can’t ignore that $364,000,000 in ONE MONTH is a massive amount of cash.

The Liberals are funneling money to their candidates at an alarming rate to try and take us down. They think they can intimidate us with their MAXED-OUT contributions in the hope that they can buy their way into the White House. They couldn’t be more wrong.

They may have Silicon Valley and HOLLYWOOD ELITES, but I’ve got something better. I have Amy from Michigan.

With your help, I want to have our BEST ONLINE FUNDRAISING DAY EVER. Your support is SO important that I’ve activated an UNPRECEDENTED 800%-MATCH on ALL contributions.
From Donald J. Trump, President of the United States

Doesn’t the Radical Right ever get tired of being yelled at? Even when Trump isn’t yelling at them, he’s still yelling. Look at all those all-caps and bold words. Isn’t that just exhausting?

Why would anyone willingly subject themselves to that?

(Because they don’t understand ‘speak softly and carry a big stick.’)

So many fundraising asks, still.

While Trump continues to yammer on about his 800% match, his surrogates, Diamond and Silk, tell me that I totally need to donate to his 700% match offer, because those don’t come around very frequently…

(there’s been a 700% match offer 14 different days in August, many times multiple times a day, and a different 700% match offer for the last 7 days straight.)

But that’s okay, because Diamond and Silk love Trump because he’s HONEST, and that’s all we need to know about them.


We love President Trump because he’s HONEST.

Most of the politicians in Washington are Deep State Snakes promising one thing and doing another, but President Trump? He’s ALWAYS gonna do the right thing for THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.
That is genuinely how they opened their email.

But the real story of the night is that the platinum card must have stopped getting new members, because Trump had to open up another tier of membership cards: the Diamond card. As always, he started it in the exact same way: pawning off responsibility for making a decision.

Originally we were planning on releasing just one design, but when President Trump saw the cards on his desk, he said, “Why would you ask me? Let the American People decide – they ALWAYS know best!”

Team Trump 2020

This is, by the way, also what he said about which picture of him was the best, and I believe several other campaign choices.

But, here you go: which card do YOU think is the best?

Just in case you were curious, here are the previous cards:

Oh, but wait, there was one more card…

2020 Trump Platinum Card
Cut-price platinum is the lovechild of the gold and platinum cards.

So… I guess if you didn’t get the cut-price card, you can’t have the full set?

Too bad.

Almost 200 emails from Biden
