The Democratic National Committee raised $15.4 million in online donations during President Joe Biden’s first 100 days in office, more than double what it raked in during ex-President Donald Trump’s first 100 days, according to Axios.

Axios reports that the average donation for this year’s 100-day period was $23.

The DNC’s cash haul surpassed that which the committee raised during Trump or Barack Obama’s first 100 days in office, which was $4.7 million and $427,000, respectively.

A committee spokesperson told Axios that “organic online contributions” skyrocketed by over 700% on the day of Biden’s speech to Congress last Wednesday from contributions given to the DNC the day before.

Biden’s address saw the President lay out his progressive goals in his sweeping $2 trillion infrastructure plan, including universal preschool and large tax hikes on corporations.
