2019 State of the Union Address

A fundraising effort by Trump's 2020 campaign on the days leading to the address and on the day of the address raised $2.4 million from 76,000 donors. His campaign displayed names of donors on a live streaming broadcast of the event on Donald Trump's Facebook page. This is comparable to fundraising for Trump's 2020 campaign that occurred during the 2018 address that similarly included the display of names of donors on a streaming broadcast online.

The Trump reelection effort raised over $2.4 million in an unusual State of the Union Address pitch that offered donors a chance to see their name on a livestream of his speech.
