Trump campaign announces $35M fundraising haul after guilty verdict

he Trump campaign brought in roughly $35 million after former President Trump was found guilty of 34 felony counts in a New York hush money trial Thursday, as his campaign argues the verdict supercharged support among grassroots donors.

“From just minutes after the sham trial verdict was announced, our digital fundraising system was overwhelmed with support, and despite temporary delays online because of the amount of traffic, President Trump raised $34.8 million dollars from small dollar donors,” Trump campaign senior advisers Chris LaCivita and Susie Wiles said in a joint statement Friday.

he campaign said the fundraising total broke the campaign’s previous record for small-dollar donations in a day. LaCivita and Wiles said nearly 30 percent of the donors following the verdict were new to the WinRed platform, which is used by Republican candidates for fundraising.

“President Trump and our campaign are immensely grateful from this outpouring of support from patriots across our country,” the two aides said. “President Trump is fighting to save our nation and November 5th is the day Americans will deliver the real verdict.”
