The campaign of Donald Trump had raised a whopping $4 million within the first 24 hours after the news broke that ‘corrupt’ Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg had indicted the former president.
The news reflects many predictions and warnings to Trump’s opponents that his indictment would not have their desired effect and only make him more popular.
“This incredible surge of grassroots contributions confirms that the American people see the indictment of President Trump as a disgraceful weaponization of our justice system by a Soros-funded prosecutor,” a Trump campaign press release read.
But what is different with this particular round of contributions is that over 25 percent of the $4 million donations came from first-time Trump donors.
As the press release notes, the donations are “further solidifying President Trump’s status as the clear frontrunner in the Republican primary.”
The average donor contribution was $34.
“President Trump’s 2024 campaign is funded by an unmatched coalition of hardworking patriots who are fed up with special interest donors like Soros spending billions of dollars to influence our elections,” the press release continued.
“Americans from across all 50 states donated to President Trump’s campaign within the first 5 hours of the sham indictment,” it added.
NBC reported that the Trump campaign also received 16,000 volunteer sign-ups in the same period.
Trump will likely make his first appearance in court for his arraignment next week following Bragg’s indictment against him for his alleged role in paying porn star Stormy Daniels hush money the amount of $130,000.
Meanwhile, Trump wrote on Truth Social to urge his supporters, “who are doing well,” to donate to his campaign.
“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.”
Last week, Trump’s 2024 announced $1.5 million in contributions following the rumors of the former president’s indictment.
Around the same time, The Daily Fetched reported that Trump saw a boost in support, according to a Morning Consult survey.
