Trump campaign raises $4 million in first 24 hours after indictment
Former President Donald Trump raised more than $4 million in the first 24 hours after Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg was charged.
“This incredible wave of grassroots contributions confirms that the American people view the indictment of President Trump as a shameful weaponization of our justice system by a Soros-funded prosecutor,” read a Trump campaign press release.
Notably, more than 25% of the donations came from new Trump donors, “further cementing President Trump’s status as the undisputed front-runner in the Republican primary,” the press release continues.
The average donor contribution was $34.
“President Trump’s 2024 campaign is being funded by an unparalleled coalition of working patriots who are fed up with special-interest donors like Soros spending billions of dollars to influence our elections,” the press release continued. “Americans in all 50 states donated to President Trump’s campaign within the first 5 hours of the bogus indictment.”
A campaign official also told NBC that he received 16,000 volunteer registrations during the same period.
Bragg’s case against Trump centers on the alleged role he played in paying pot star Stormy Daniels $130,000 in hush money. Trump will likely make his first court appearance for his impeachment next week.
Trump’s campaign sent out more than six fundraising emails following the indictment.
As NBC News reported:
The subject lines of his fundraising emails included “America needs you right now”, “BREAKING: PRESIDENT TRUMP INDICATED”, “DETAIL RUMOR ABOUT MY ARREST” and “Yes, I ‘ve been charged, BUT”.
Trump also took to Truth Social to urge his “doing well” supporters to donate to his campaign.
“If you’re doing badly, like many of you, don’t send anything,” Trump wrote. “If you’re doing well, which was made possible by the excellent policies of the Trump administration, send your contribution to donaldjtrump.com.”
