The Bernie Sanders has often made it clear that no donation is too small when it comes to supporting his campaign’s vision for a free stuff utopia:
An incredible 525,000 people have already contributed to our campaign.
The most common profession? Teachers. The average donation? Just $20.
This campaign is about all of us—not billionaire donors and Super PACs.

Trump tweeted, emailed, and text-messaged his supporters—terrified of our Day 1 fundraising and sign-up numbers. He’s scared. And he should be. Help us send Trump a message in a language he’s sure to understand: Make a $10 donation to our campaign today: https://t.co/gmJT4pVDbT pic.twitter.com/pBY4p7noAZ

After touting the small average donation, perhaps somebody took a look at the campaign’s pacing report and decided Bernie supporters need to start digging deeper:
Bernie Sanders is now telling supporters his average donation is too small https://t.co/4jjTFeFwYS

Via the Washington Examiner:
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is concerned that supporters aren’t donating enough money, according to a new email sent from his campaign Tuesday afternoon.
“The bad news is, our average donation amount is far less than anyone else. This month our average donation is lower than it’s ever been — right around $14,” the socialist 2020 candidate wrote. “That means it takes 200 donations to match 1 max-out check being scooped up at a swanky fundraiser held by one of our opponents.”
So dig deeper, Bernie supporters!
Impossible. Socialists never ask for more money. https://t.co/32Kb3mDscf

I feel like this is a good metaphor for actual socialism. https://t.co/c1D8uUscMQ

Just a little.
1) way to sound like a grift there
2) weren't small donations something his campaign prided itself on in 2016? https://t.co/u3oenVjFmt

Sounds like Bernie’s campaign is already concerned about running out of other peoples’ money.
Is that like saying "my birthday presents weren't expensive enough"?
