Donald Trump raised $2.4 million for Hillary Clinton

Trump's knock -- that Hillary Clinton was playing the "woman card" to win the White House -- backfired.

Hillary for America

That Donald J. Trump “woman card” remark backfired.

Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton cashed in on Trump’s comment that the former secretary of state was exploiting her gender to win the White House, raising $2.4 million in campaign contributions from Thursday through Saturday through emails and merchandise sales.

The Clinton campaign said Trump’s slight led to its two best days of online fundraising, as some 118,000 donors lined up to buy a hot pink “Woman Card” and other items — a deck of cards with statistics (e.g. only 5 percent of Fortune 500 CEOs are women) and a “Deal me in” T-shirt.

“The other day, Mr. Trump accused me of playing the, quote, ‘woman card.’ Well, if fighting for women’s health care and paid family leave and equal pay is playing the woman card, then deal me in,” Clinton said from her victory rally in Philadelphia.
