Trump Campaign Raises $4 Million With 24 Hours of Politicized Indictment
In a news release published by former President Donald Trump’s campaign on March 31, 2023, Trump has raised over $4 million in the 24 hours since he was indicted by a federal grand jury in Manhattan.
Over 25% of the donations to Trump’s campaign came from first-time donors.
Following the news of Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg indicting Trump on the afternoon of March 30, his campaign blasted out several fundraising emails. With regards to the first-time donors, the Trump campaign says this “solidifies President Trump’s status as the clear frontrunner in the Republican primary.”
Per NBC News, campaign officials also stated that they had received roughly 16,000 volunteer sign-ups in addition to the donations.
The Trump indictment has largely been criticized by rank-and-file Republican voters in addition to Trump’s Republican challengers and is viewed as a politicized maneuver and a violation of the justice system.
Once the indictment dropped, Trump declared that it was a “political witch hunt” and stressed his innocence, denying the extramarital affair and the payments.
Trump faces up to 30 charges, and could end up facing four years in prison.
This latest indictment shows that the US is entering Banana Republic status and can no longer be viewed as an institutionally stable country. The Right must recognize this new political reality and start embracing more scorched earth policies against the Left and demonstrate a willingness to throw down against these malevolent political actors.
Debating these people to convince them of the error of their ways is an exercise in futility. The time to drop the legislative hammer is now.
