Trump raises millions off after indictment announced

 April 3, 2023

Donald Trump raised more than $4 million in the wake of his indictment last week.

Within the first 24 hours after news broke that a Manhattan grand jury indicted him, Trump's campaign funds grew by that impressive margin.

"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 press release by Trump's campaign reads.

Reportedly, more than 25% of donations came from first-time Trump donors, "further solidifying President Trump’s status as the clear frontrunner in the Republican primary," the press release reads.

The average contribution from donors 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," Trump's campaign press release reads. "Americans from across all 50 states donated to President Trump’s campaign within the first 5 hours of the sham indictment."

A campaign official also said it received 16,000 volunteer sign-ups in the same 24-hour span.

"Bragg’s case against Trump focuses on the alleged role he played in paying porn star Stormy Daniels $130,000 in hush money. Trump will likely make his first appearance in court for his arraignment next week," reports Breitbart.
