Former President Donald Trump's "Save America" political action committee has more cash on hand than the Republican National Committee (RNC) and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) combined, according to financial data from the Federal Election Commission (FEC).

Kenneth Vogel, a journalist with The New York Times, noted the disparity between Trump's PAC and the committees' funds in a tweet on Monday.

Vogel said that FEC records show Save America reported $110.4 million in cash on hand as of February 28, compared to the DNC's $52.9 million and the RNC's $24.5 million.

However, he's held multiple "Save America" rallies and proven to be the most prodigious fundraiser within the GOP.

"President Donald J. Trump has built a political organization that continues to capture and define the future of the Republican Party," he said.

The February 1 statement also said 98.6 percent of the donations to Save America came from small-dollar donors who gave under $200.

Newsweek contacted Save America, the DNC and the RNC for comment but didn't hear back from any of the groups in time for publication. »
