President Donald Trump is back in New Jersey for a brief stop to raise money for his re-election campaign.

Air Force One landed at Morristown Airport at 2:07 p.m. and Trump then boarded the Marine One helicopter and flew to his Bedminster golf club, where the fundraiser is taking place, according to White House pool reports.

Trump was scheduled to depart a few hours later following a roundtable with supporters and then a fundraising event.

In August, Trump raised money at the Long Branch home of a late real estate developer who was one of his biggest supporters, and in June he opened his Bedminster golf club to another fundraiser.

Through Aug. 31, Trump has raised $476 million, but trailed Democratic challenger Joe Biden, who has brought in $531 million, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.
