Trump campaign claims to have raised $7.1 million since mugshot in Georgia

The campaign of the former president of the United States, Donald Trump, says that it has raised 7.1 million dollars (6.5 million euros) since he was processed in the Fulton County jail, in the city of Atlanta (Georgia) this Thursday for the case that investigates him for his alleged involvement in a criminal network that sought to reverse the results of the 2020 elections.

Trump’s total fundraising over the past three weeks, following his indictment and indictment in Washington related to the January 6 federal case and then his surrender and arraignment at the Fulton County Jail in Georgia, hovers around $20 million. of dollars (about 18 million euros), as explained by an official from his campaign to CNN.

Only this Friday, the day after his arrest in Georgia, Trump raised 4.18 million dollars (about 3.8 million euros), the highest-grossing day of the entire campaign.

Following the former president’s arrest, his campaign also immediately began selling merchandise featuring the former president’s mugshot, and the sales have contributed to the high fundraising totals.

Earlier this month, special counsel Jack Smith filed four federal charges against the former president. The indictment alleges that Trump “was determined to remain in power” and, along with his allies, orchestrated a plot to overturn the results prior to the January 6, 2021 attack on the United States Capitol.

However, Trump pleaded not guilty to those charges, which included conspiracy to defraud the United States and conspiracy to obstruct official proceeding.

Last week, Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis filed 41 charges against Trump and 18 co-defendants, including his former personal attorney and New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani and former chief of staff for the White House, Mark Meadows.

These charges include violating state anti-organized crime law, and the indictment alleges that the defendants worked as a “company” to overturn the state’s election result.

While Trump has yet to be arraigned in the Georgia case, he made a prime-time appearance at the Fulton County Jail on Thursday to be booked and released on bail. Trump’s aides said they were very pleased with Thursday’s media coverage and the former president immediately began raising funds after his arrest.
