Ex-US President Trump raises more than $4 mn in 24 hrs after indictment

By Press Trust of India: Donald Trump raised over $4 million towards his 2024 presidential run in 24 hours after a Manhattan grand jury indicted the former US President on charges related to paying off a porn star, his office has said.

According to the former president’s campaign, over 25 percent of donations came from first-time donors to the Trump Campaign, further solidifying his status as the clear frontrunner in the Republican primary.

“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,” it said in a statement on Friday.

“With an average contribution of only $34, President 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,” it said.

Americans from across all 50 states donated to Trump’s campaign within the first five hours of the “sham indictment”, the statement said.

The grand jury on Thursday voted to indict Trump, a Republican, for his role in paying money to adult film star Stormy Daniels in an attempt to buy her silence over an alleged affair. Trump, who is the first former US president to face a criminal charge, will be arraigned on Tuesday.
