Donald Trump’s campaign said it brought in more than $18 million in less than 24 hours after Monday’s presidential debate and that the haul signals “momentum of historic proportions.”

The “massive fundraising day” resulted from Mr. Trump’s “huge debate win,” said Steven Mnuchin, the campaign’s finance chairman.

“This is a movement to Make America Great Again,” Mr. Mnuchin said.

“We are grateful for the support of millions of Americans across the country. With this kind of energy and generous support behind us, we are going to have President Donald J. Trump in the White House,” he said.

The campaign said the money was raised in conjunction with the Republican National Committee.

“The National Call Day was a tremendous success. Many donors came on board as Donald J. Trump rolls on to victory,” said Lew Eisenberg, the finance chairman for an associated joint fundraising committee.

The Trump campaign itself raised about $42 million in the entire month of August. Combined with associated committees, the campaign reported a total haul of about $90 million last month.
