Joe Biden raised a record $141 million in June compared to $131 million brought in by President Trump's campaign. Biden as the former vice president is doing a lot of efforts to unseat President Donald Trump and to gain momentum. Meanwhile, Joe Biden, the presidential candidate in the U.S., has promised that he will end the ban after winning the election.

In the period of pandemic and continuous economic free fall, Donald Trump's reelection campaign and The Republican National Committee on Wednesday evening announced that for the three months they have raised $266 million which ends on 30 June which includes $131 million in June alone.

What's next: "The council will work with the Biden campaign to develop and execute plans to engage key communities most affected by climate change and environmental injustices, including young Americans, communities of color, union households, and more", Biden's campaign said.

The president, who started his re-election bid shortly after he moved into the White House, has been a prodigious fundraiser and built an early war chest for his re-election battle against Democrats.

And Parscale highlighted that Trump won an unprecedented number of votes for an incumbent running in a mostly uncontested nominating season, far surpassing the totals achieved by President Barack Obama in the 2012 Democratic primaries and President George W. Bush in the 2004 GOP primaries. However, it remains unclear if the test results will be released.

But while Biden once stressed a return to normalcy, his campaign has pivoted in recent months as the nation's been swept by the coronavirus pandemic and by national protests over racial inequality.

The joint GOP effort still has considerably more cash left to spend ahead of the November 3 election, but Biden's newfound fundraising muscle suggests Democrats will have the resources to finance a strong operation across a wide footprint of battleground states. Yet the campaign referenced those same public opinion polls to spotlight the president's enthusiasm advantage over Biden.
