The amount raised at a televised fundraiser in January was actually about $4.5 million, campaign manager Corey Lewandowski just told the Washington Post. At the end of the program that night, Trump announced: "We just cracked $6 million, right? Six million."
Lewandowski told the Post the shortfall was due to donors backing out.
"There were some individuals who he'd spoken to, who were going to write large checks, [who] for whatever reason . . . didn't do it," Lewandowski told the Washington Post in a telephone interview. "I can't tell you who."
