Former President Donald Trump’s 2024 White House campaign has reported raising $7 million in funds since being indicted on federal charges last week, Your Content has learned.
Despite the legal challenges, Trump’s message of political persecution continues to resonate strongly with his unwavering supporters.
In an email addressed to his supporters on Wednesday, Trump’s campaign stated, “President Trump Raises Over $6.6 Million and Counting Since Deranged Jack Smith Announced Political Prosecution.”
The reference was made to the U.S. special counsel investigating the former president.
Digital fundraising accounted for over $4.5 million, while an additional $2.1 million was raised during a donor event held at Trump’s Bedminster Club in New Jersey on Tuesday.
Responding to inquiries from Reuters, a spokesperson for Trump confirmed that fundraising had surpassed the $7 million mark since the indictment was announced last Thursday.
Trump, currently the leading contender for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination, was indicted on allegations of illegally retaining classified government documents after his tenure in the White House and conspiring to obstruct a federal probe regarding this matter.
Appearing in court on Tuesday, Trump pleaded not guilty to all 37 counts.
Throughout the proceedings, he has consistently portrayed the charges as a Democratic-led assault aimed at eliminating him from the 2024 race, ultimately intending to harm Republicans.
An impressive 81% of Republicans, as indicated by a recent Reuters/Ipsos poll, believe that the charges against Trump are politically motivated.
This surge in fundraising is reminiscent of a similar occurrence earlier this year when Trump faced charges in New York related to hush money paid to a porn star.
Following the announcement of these charges in March, his campaign managed to raise $7 million within three days, according to senior adviser Jason Miller.
Recent reporting by Reuters reveals that a political group aligned with Trump’s bid for the Republican nomination is setting new records for outside political spending early in the presidential campaign.
Trump is seeking to outpace his closest competitor, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, as he continues his campaign efforts, according U.S. News.
