ABC News reporter Will Steakin elaborated on how the fundraising played out.
This is a combined haul by the campaign and Trump Victory, the joint fundraising arm for the campaign and RNC, a Trump campaign official tells @ABC News

Washington Examiner quoted Trump 2020 memos in an article saying the campaign wanted to raise $7 million yesterday in order to surpass the initial fundraising numbers of his Democratic challengers. While Trump is still lagging behind his challengers in several public polls, Fox News recently reported that his supposed $24.8 million haul comes after the RNC and their affiliates accumulated around $82 million in their second quarter for his war chest.
