According to documents reviewed by the New York Times, the Trump campaign and allies, including the Republican National Committee, refunded more than $120 million to online donors, and the Biden operation refunded $21 million in 2020.
Refunds are given to donors who donate through WinRed, an online fundraising platform used by the Republican Party, which was established in response to the Democratic Party’s success on ActBlue. Many refunds are provided to those who claim that they have not noticed the pre-selection box for monthly (or even weekly) donations.
Trump said the company played a “false cancellation culture” in the GA election bill
The New York Times alleged that Trump’s actions induced donors to provide regular gifts, and essentially borrowed his own money without knowing the donors, and then refunded them after the election. Many donors said that due to the exquisite printing, they inadvertently provided donations that far exceeded the legal limit.
According to the New York Times, refunds soared in the last two and a half months of 2020, when more than 530,000 refunds were issued to Trump’s donors, totaling $64.3 million.
According to a report in the New York Times, Biden’s campaign and its allies issued 37,000 online refunds during the same period, totaling $5.6 million.

Trump spokesperson Jason Miller (Jason Miller) questioned the description of the New York Times.
He told the New York Times: “Although we have raised more grassroots funds than any campaign in history, our dispute rate is less than 1% of total donations. This is an amazing fact.” “Our campaign. It was founded by hardworking men and women in the United States, and cherishing their investment is vital to anything else we do.”
According to the New York Times, the refund rate for WinRed’s Trump operation in 2020 was 10.7%, while the refund rate for ActBlue’s Biden operation was 2.2%.
