After hearing that Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg had prosecuted him, former president Donald Trump raised more than $4 million in the first day.
According to a news statement from the Trump team, “this unprecedented rush of grassroots contributions demonstrates that the American people regard the indictment of President Trump as a shameful weaponization of our judicial system by a Soros-funded prosecutor.”
The news release stated, “Most importantly, more than 25% of donations came from first-time Trump donors, further confirming President Trump’s reputation as the obvious frontrunner in the Republican primary.” Donor contributions ranged from $14 to $34, on average.
According to the news release, “President Trump’s 2024 campaign is funded by an unequaled coalition of hardworking patriots who are tired of special interest funders like Soros spending billions of dollars to influence our elections.” “During the first five hours of the sham indictment, Americans from every state in the union contributed to President Trump’s campaign.”
Additionally, a campaign representative told NBC that during the same time frame, 16,000 volunteers signed up.
The primary emphasis of Bragg’s case against Trump is the alleged part that Trump participated in giving reality TV star Stormy Daniels $130,000 in hush money. Trump’s arraignment is expected to be next week, when he will likely make his first court appearance.
Following the indictment, Trump’s campaign sent out more than six emails asking for donations. Trump also used Truth Social to ask his “doing well” fans to contribute to his campaign.
Trump did mention a very important message for his donors: “If you are doing poorly, as so many of you are, do not send anything,” Trump wrote. “If you are doing well, which was made possible through the great policies of the Trump Administration, send your contribution to donaldjtrump.com.”
