Since the charges were filed, the indictment of Donald Trump has surprisingly resulted in a substantial financial boon for his presidential campaign in 2024, as an overwhelming $7 million has poured in. This influx of funds has delivered a significant boost to Trump’s campaign funds, enhancing his prospects for the upcoming election.
On Wednesday, the campaign issued a statement underscoring the exceptional nature of the indictment and accusing prosecutor Jack Smith of exploiting the justice system for political gain. They emphasized that despite these unjust actions, Trump’s grassroots supporters from all corners of the country have united behind him, contributing an impressive sum of over $6.6 million in just a matter of days. Remarkably, $4.5 million was generated through digital fundraising endeavors, while an additional $2.1 million was collected during a recent fundraising occasion in Bedminster, New Jersey.
Trump’s campaign said in a statement Wednesday:
“Since deranged Jack Smith took the unprecedented step of weaponizing the justice system to attack his political opponent, Donald J. Trump for President 2024 has raised more than $6.6 million in just a few short days.”
“In a clear sign of the steadfast support President Donald J. Trump enjoys from grassroots Patriots across the nation, over $4.5 million has been raised from digital fundraising, with an additional $2.1 million raised at President Trump’s event at Bedminster [New Jersey] last night.”
Following the statement, the campaign announced an update, revealing that the total amount raised had exceeded $7 million, adding:
“Universal polling both nationally and statewide has shown President Trump holding insurmountable leads and is the only candidate who can beat Joe Biden in a general election.”
With this unexpected infusion of funds, Donald Trump’s campaign finds itself in a stronger position, poised to confront the challenges ahead and capitalize on the unwavering support of his base.
