    Donald Trump has picked up his fundraising game but not enough to catch up to challenger Hillary Clinton.

    The Republican presidential candidate raised $36.6 million in July, according to newly released filings to the Federal Election Commission. But that is $16 million less than Clinton for the month.

    When fundraising by national parties and the super PACs backing the respective candidates are added to the total, team Clinton far outpaces team Trump, NBC News reported.

    The Democratic National Committee, Clinton and the super PAC backing Clinton, Priorities USA, raised a total of $94.5 million last month.

    In comparison, the Republican National Committee, Trump and two super PACs backing Trump, brought in just two-thirds of the Democrats' total: $68.3 million in July.

    After shunning fundraisers in the primary and boasting about funding his own campaign, Trump has begun hosting large-dollar fundraisers since he clinched the nomination. Much of his money has come from small donations, in line with his appeal to working-class voters.
