Since former President Trump turned himself into the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office this week, his campaign has brought in $7.1 million.
After being charged along with 18 other people in a 98-page, 41-count charge primarily by Fulton County DA Fani Willis, Trump turned himself in. Notably, Fulton County ordered Trump to get his first mugshot in the four indictments he is facing right now.
This week was the first occasion in two years that Trump had been on Twitter. He posted a picture of his mugshot as well as a link telling his fans how to give to his campaign.
“Do not even consider donating if you’re having a hard time because of the evil people in charge of our country at the moment,” Trump’s website said. “But if you can, please make a donation to get Crooked Joe Biden out of the White House and also SAVE AMERICA throughout this dark time in our country’s history.”
Trump’s team also sold items with his picture and the words “NEVER SURRENDER!” on them.
Steven Cheung, a Trump assistant, said that $4.18 million was raised last Friday, making it the day with the most money raised for Trump’s campaign so far.
“Organic money has gone through the roof, especially following @realDonaldTrump tweeting the picture and the website’s address,” said Cheung.
In addition, the Trump campaign has raised about $20 million in the past three weeks after being charged by Willis and Jack Smith for allegedly participating in the January 6 US Capitol Riots. A campaign worker told Breitbart News that the Trump campaign is likely to reach $20 million in the next few days.
Trump’s campaign has raised more money after each of the three times that the former president was indicted.
In the state of Georgia’s case, Trump was freed on a bond of $200,000, which was the highest among all of his co-defendants.
