Donald Trump donated $10 million to his campaign on Friday, according to a Federal Election Commission filing.
The donation comes after the Republican nominee told Fox News host Bret Baier that he was putting in the additional money, bringing his total contributions to the campaign to more than $66 million.

“I’m going to put up some more as we need it,” Trump told Baier. “And what it takes is what it takes, and we’re watching very closely.”
Trump has been badly outraised and outspent by his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton, whose combined accounts and those of supporting super PACs had her, as of mid-October, with nearly $100 million more in the bank than Trump and his allies.
In its Thursday filing to the FEC, Trump’s campaign reported having just $16 million cash on hand as of Oct. 19.
“They have a machine,” Trump complained to Baier. “The Democrats are a machine. We don’t have a machine, the Republicans. We have sadly, people that are in a leadership capacity that almost like not for us.”
Asked whether he would donate $100 million, as he has repeatedly promised to do, Trump was noncommittal.
“Well I’m going to meet what I have to meet, but I’m going to put more money in, I think I’m putting $10 million more today, and again, again, I’m putting my money. She’s not putting any of her money in,” Trump said.
