First daughter and top White House adviser Ivanka Trump is a star when it comes to fundraising, putting the vaulted money machine Barack Obama to shame.

Hard at work raising money for President Trump’s reelection, Ivanka has hosted 32 events, to include nine fundraisers, on her father’s behalf, and regularly draws more people than Democratic nominee Joe Biden, according to the Washington Examiner — she drew 3,000 in Sarasota, Florida, this past week.

Ivanka surely made her father proud when she broke the former president’s single-day fundraising record in September — Obama’s best single-day haul was set in 2014 at $3.8 million and Ivanka topped that at an event in Austin, Texas, where she raised $4.5 million.

Ivanka Trump celebrated her success in Austin with a tweet acknowledging that the excitement for the president is “yuge!”

Just last week, Ivanka reportedly raised $13 million, taking in a whopping $10 million at fundraisers in Mountain View and Beverly Hills, Calif., and another $3 million in Detroit.

“Our donors were thrilled to hear directly from Ivanka Trump about the policies her father has delivered on and his vision for the next four years,” Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, who has traveled with Trump, told the Examiner.

The newspaper reported that she has banked over $35 million overall and remains busy as the election nears, appearing at 11 events since last Sunday.

The Trump campaign is said to be looking to Ivanka to help shore up support among suburban female voters — which the media continues to insist is moving away.

“As a working mother who has dedicated her career to the improvement of women’s lives, Ivanka intrinsically understands the issues facing American families today,” Mercedes Schlapp, a senior adviser for the Trump campaign, told Politico in October. “Ivanka Trump can speak to President Trump’s success from the perspective of both a policy adviser and close family member — a remarkably effective combination on the campaign trail.”

Ivanka Trump invited officers who worked on a human trafficking task force that had recently rescued dozens of missing children up on the stage at an event in Ohio.

With three days to go before Election Day, the enthusiasm is clearly in Trump’s favor as he zips across the country, holding rallies in multiple states in a single day.

In an attempt to compete, 77-year-old “Sleepy Joe” Biden fell back on his bromance with Obama to stir a little excitement.

For the first time in the campaign, Biden and Obama made a joint appearance in the battleground state of Michigan — which may tell you how concerned Democrats are about winning the state.

The pair made a campaign stop Saturday afternoon in Flint before heading to Detroit, even rolling out legendary recording artist Stevie Wonder, whose hit “Signed, Sealed, Delivered” was used by the Obama campaign in 2008.

“Joe Biden is my brother. I love Joe Biden. And he will be a great president,” Obama said while in Flint.

Trump hit the Democratic duo over the Flint water crisis, pointing out that the crisis occurred on their watch and that they owe residents there “a massive apology.”

He also noted that Biden took the endorsement of former GOP Gov. Rick Snyder, who was in office when Flint’s water supply was tainted with lead.

Back in the limelight, Obama did what he does best — perform before his adoring media allies.

The former president takes a 3-point shot in the old Flint Northwestern High School gymnasium, sinking the basket.

Olivia Raisner, the Biden campaign traveling digital director, was quick to share the video.
