President Donald Trump has a grand total of $129 million in his coffers for his reelection effort, a record-setting amount for a sitting President at this stage in the election cycle, according to a Thursday Washington Post report. 

According to FEC data, Trump has been continually inundated with small donor contributions in amounts less than $200.

Trump has also been able to build up his reserves as his legals fees have dropped off.
