The Trump Corp. - owned by the president and run by sons Eric and Donald Trump Jr. - collected $24,000.

Trump's reelection campaign spent over $834, 000 on legal consulting fees in the first quarter of 2018, the three month period from January 1 to March 31, according to records from the federal election commission disclosed Sunday afternoon.

The latest figures bring the Trump campaign's total spending on legal fees to almost $4 million since the president took office, records show.

The two legal firms involved in the fight with Daniels - Harding LLP and Larocca, Hornik, Rosen, Greenberg & Blaha - were paid a combined total of $280,000.

Daniels alleges she had an affair with Trump and was paid "hush money" by his personal lawyer to keep quiet about the relationship.

Using campaign funds to pay for the president's mounting legal fees related to Daniels and the Russian Federation investigation means that the money small-dollar donors are giving to the president's campaign isn't all going toward traditional reelection efforts like ads, campaign staff payroll, and fundraising.

About $835,000 in payments for "legal consulting" were made to eight firms and the Trump Corporation, with the most - $347,000 - going to Jones Day.

Trump's former personal aide, John McEntee, who was bounced out of the White House early last month amid an investigation reportedly for "serious financial crimes", was paid $22,000 by the campaign in late March, CNN noted. They have spent $3.9 million and reported have $28.3 million cash on hand.

Trump's campaign spent almost $127,000 at the president's private properties this year, including lodging and meeting fees at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., catering services at Trump Restaurants in NY, and rent to Trump Tower in NY.

Besides increasing money due to his effort, money for campaigns have also amassed using all the Republican National Committee, which utilizes that capital. The campaign has also paid Parscale Strategy, the firm run by the 2020 reelection campaign manager Brad Parscale, almost $1.7 million so far this year.

That was a big increase over the last quarter of 2017, when the three committees together raised $12.5 million.
