Trump's campaign has also spent about $150,000 at Trump businesses, including the legal fees, per the FEC report.

Daniels filed a lawsuit in March seeking to invalidate a 2016 agreement to keep secret a decade-old alleged sexual encounter with Trump in exchange for $130,000.

The White House said previous year, before the Daniels court battle began, that Trump would begin paying his own legal expenses in the Mueller probe, after the Republican National Committee shelled out hundreds of thousands of dollars for attorneys for him. That was a sharp drop from the previous quarter, when the campaign paid the firm almost $215,000.

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.

Critics of President Donald Trump often compare him to his predecessor, Barack Obama.

He continues to energize small-dollar donors, FEC filings show. But legal fees weren't the only big expense: About $650,000 went toward campaign gear such as hats and mugs.

Responding to the Ricketts campaign filing, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Bob Krist said he has been "focused on performing my elected duties in the Nebraska Legislature" and has been delayed in mounting a concerted fundraising campaign. Trump will stand for re-election in November 2020. Recall that during the 2016 campaign, Parscale was in charge of overseeing the campaign's digital media strategy and its online fundraising campaigns.

Trump's campaign and two fundraising committees that jointly raise funds with the Republican National Committee collected a total of almost $20.2 million in the first quarter, the Post reported. McEntee was recently forced out of the White House after security issues related to gambling and was then quickly hired by the campaign.
