Trump campaign raises over $7M after Georgia mugshot

Former President Donald Trump's team raised $7.1 million after the former president's mugshot was released on Thursday.

Trump's photo was taken after he surrendered himself at Georgia's Fulton County Jail after being indicted by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis.

The statement

“If you are doing poorly due to the sinister people in control of our country right now, don’t even think about donating,” Trump’s webpage read.

“But if you can, please make a contribution to evict Crooked Joe Biden from the White House and SAVE AMERICA during this dark chapter in our nation’s history.”

A Mega MAGA response

"Trump, who is the frontrunner in the 2024 Republican primary race, raised $4.18 million on Friday alone, marking the highest-grossing day of his entire campaign, a spokesperson said. The former president’s fundraising haul was first reported by Politico," the Hill reported.

"The campaign has brought in nearly $20 million in the last three weeks, amid two separate indictments over the former president’s efforts to remain in power after the 2020 election," it added.

The mugshot merchandise

"Organic money has skyrocketed, especially after President Trump tweeted out the picture along with the website," the campaign told Fox News.

"The spike in fundraising also appears to be fueled, in part, by merchandise they have been selling through their online store," it continued.

The campaign's best-selling new items feature Trump's mugshot, including mugs and T-shirts, among other items.

The indictment adds to recent charges the former president has received in Washington related to Jan. 6, 2021. In total, Trump faces four indictments and 91 charges, with the Fulton County indictment including 18 co-defendants such as Rudy Giuliani, Jenna Ellis and Mark Meadows, with Trump posted bond at $200,000 after his arrest..

Many argue that the charges are political, seeking to knock Trump out of the 2024 campaign. Instead, they seem to be having the opposite impact, with his campaign improving following his arrest. So far, polls show Trump far ahead of other GOP competitors, though his national poll numbers show a close battle in a potential rematch with President Joe Biden in the 2024 general election.
