Former President Donald Trump raised more than $4 million in the 24 hours after news of his indictment in Manhattan became public, according to figures released by his campaign Friday.
The Trump campaign said that more than 25% of the donations came from first-time donors to the former president, “further solidifying President Trump’s status as the clear frontrunner in the Republican primary.”
Trump’s campaign sent out more than a half-dozen fundraising solicitations over email in less than 24 hours after his indictment, and he called for donations on his Truth Social platform as well.
A campaign official also told NBC News that it received 16,000 volunteer sign-ups over the past day as well.
The former president faces about 30 charges in relation to document fraud stemming from hush money he allegedly paid to cover up years-old affairs, two sources familiar the proceedings told NBC News following news of Trump’s indictment, which remains under seal until Trump appears in court for his arraignment.
