Trump campaign raises $52.8M after guilty verdict

by | May 31, 2024

Following a conviction on 34 felony counts in his New York trial, the Trump campaign has raised approximately $52.8 million dollars, with the verdict significantly boosting support among grassroots donors.

“From just minutes after the sham trial verdict was announced, our digital fundraising system was overwhelmed with support,” said senior advisers Chris LaCivita and Susie Wiles in a joint statement. “Despite temporary delays online due to the traffic, President Trump raised $34.8 million from small-dollar donors.” The amount nearly doubled not even a day later. 

Trump’s campaign reported that the first day’s total of $35 million broke its previous record for small-dollar donations in a single day. Nearly 30 percent of the donors following the verdict were new to the WinRed platform, which is utilized by Republican candidates for fundraising.

“President Trump is fighting to save our nation and November 5th is the day Americans will deliver the real verdict,” Trump’s aides said.

Shortly after Trump was convicted, his WinRed fundraising page crashed after a massive surge of donations.

On Thursday, Trump was found guilty on all 34 counts of falsifying business records, marking him as the first president to be convicted of a felony. The 12-person jury in the hush money trial delivered their verdict after approximately 11 hours of deliberation.

Trump, who has denied the affair and pleaded not guilty, is expected to appeal the verdict.
