Donald Trump says he raised $100 million last month for his presidential campaign and Republican partners.

That would make September the best fundraising month Trump has had. But it was no match for Hillary Clinton. The Democratic nominee raised $154 million last month.

Trump and his allies began October with $75 million in cash reserves -- exactly half of what Clinton's team said it had.

Trump's statement on Saturday comes five days ahead of when he and Clinton will file September fundraising details with federal regulators. Clinton disclosed her monthly totals two weeks ago.

Trump's September fundraising includes a $2 million personal donation.
