"We are aware of the President’s statement regarding a hypothetical call with our CEO…and just so we’re all clear, it never happened," ExxonMobil tweeted just a few hours after the rally.

At the rally in Arizona on Monday afternoon, Trump had said he could easily out-fundraise Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden if he just reached out to oil and Wall Street executives.

“Don't forget, I'm not bad at that stuff anyway, and I'm president. So I call some guy, the head of Exxon. I call the head of Exxon. I don't know,” Trump said before playing out a conversation.

“How are you doing? How’s energy coming? When are you doing the exploration? Oh, you need a couple of permits?” he said. “When I call the head of Exxon I say, ‘You know, I'd love [for you] to send me $25 million for the campaign.’ ‘Absolutely sir.’ ”

“I will hit a home run every single call. I would raise a billion dollars in one day if I wanted to. I don't want to do that,” he said.

Trump had made the comment as a theoretical scenario as he discussed fundraising at the rally. Trump has trailed Biden in fundraising totals heading toward the final two weeks of the campaign.

Federal law prohibits soliciting campaign contributions in exchange for specific policy outcomes or other quid pro quos.

Look at Exxon run away from that comment by Trump. Pretty funny. Trump can get all the money he needs by breaking the law I guess.

And to be perfectly clear, asking for campaign money in return for permits or anything else of value, provided using your official office, is illegal.

A hypothetical situation is the best you got?

We need you to try harder.

Sounds like Trump describing his standard operating procedure. He sure seemed confident about it.

What part of hypothetical, do you not get? Doesn't have enough credibility to be on the poli forum.
