Former President Donald Trump may have become the first current or ex-president to face criminal charges — and we know why that is — but it’s not all been bad news for him.
Within 24 hours after Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg indicted him, his 2024 campaign raked in millions in a fundraising windfall.
In a press release, the Trump team announced he “raised over $4 million in the 24 hours following Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s unprecedented political persecution of the President, and blatant interference in the 2024 election against the leading Republican presidential candidate.”
The Trump team touted the fact that “over 25% of Donations Came from First-Time Donors to the Trump Campaign.”
“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,” the statement continued.
His campaign noted further that the average contributor donated just $34, suggesting this meant “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.”
“Americans from across all 50 states donated to President Trump’s campaign within the first 5 hours of the sham indictment,” the press release added.

Trump released a blistering statement after he was indicted by Bragg.
“This is Political Persecution and Election Interference at the highest level in history. From the time I came down the golden escalator at Trump Tower, and even before I was sworn in as your President of the United States, the Radical Left Democrats – the enemy of the hard-working men and women of this Country – have been engaged in a Witch-Hunt to destroy the Make America Great Again movement,” he said.
