President Donald Trump's 2020 reelection campaign has spent almost $1.2 million in legal fees so far this year, including $348,000 over the last three months, according to fundraising reports filed with the Federal Election Commission, BuzzFeed News reports.

President Trump told Piers Morgan last week that he "fully" intends to run for re-election in 2020.

Three prominent Trump committees have raised over $17 million in the second quarter of 2018.

At the end of the second quarter, Trump's re-election campaign had $33 million in the bank, with another $20 million coming from two joint fundraising committees with the Republican Party.

Most of the money went to the law firm Jones Day, which has represented Trump since the 2016 USA presidential election.

House Democrats' campaign fund - the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) - has raised over $162 million as of May 31.

The largest individual donation to Trump's re-election efforts in the second quarter came from billionaire Dallas banker Andrew Beal, who gave $339,000 to Trump Victory.

"We are thrilled with the continued support of so many Americans who resoundingly approve of Donald Trump's performance as President", Lara Trump, Trump's daughter-in-law and a senior adviser to his re-election campaign, said in a statement.

Federal records covering April 1 through June 30 also show that Trump's campaign spent more than $6,000 on office supplies from Amazon, a company Trump has routinely pilloried.
