[WASHINGTON] Republican Party presidential candidate Donald Trump tweeted on Tuesday that he raised US$13 million in 24 hours from online donations.

Mr Trump, who has struggled to convince traditional Republican donors to back his campaign, has turned to online donations from supporters to fund his campaign for the Nov 8 election.

In August, Mr Trump raised US$90 million, trailing Democratic Party candidate Hillary Clinton, who raised US$143 million in the same month.
