Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump called on GOP leaders to support his White House bid on Tuesday.

“I need support from the Republicans. I mean, in some ways I get more support from the Democrats than I do the Republicans,” Trump said on “Fox and Friends.”

He said that some Republicans “have been phenomenal” and said the Republican National Committee has been “terrific,” but said he wants more vocal support from party leaders.

“It would be nice to have full support from people that are in office, full verbal support,” Trump said. “With all of that being said, I may go a difference route if things don’t happen.”

Trump’s campaign finished May with just $1.3 million in the bank, according to a Federal Election Commission filing late Monday. Trump raised $3.1 million for his campaign in May, compared with presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton who raise $26.4 million.

Clinton has built a large fundraising infrastructure, while Trump has refused major donations during the primaries.

“She’s going to spend more than $1 billion. I don’t want to do that,” Trump said on Tuesday. “We want to keep it lean. I’m not looking to spend all this money,” he added.

“Politicians are the only ones who can spend a billion dollars. Hillary Clinton will spend a billion dollars of Wall Street money and money from the Middle East.”
