Trump team raises $1.5 million as indictments loom
Former President Donald Trump has not been arrested, but his team is raising money from prospects.
Trump’s 2024 campaign has raised $1.5 million in three days after claiming it would be indicted over the weekend in a hush-money probe in New York, the campaign told Fox News.
Trump predicted on Saturday that Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg would indict him for paying adult film star Stormy Daniels. He pinpointed Tuesday, which came and went, but the money continued to flow from the funding pitch.
The former president said in a video that if people were “not doing well” they shouldn’t be sending anything.
“If it’s working, made possible by the great policies of the Trump administration, send a donation,” he said.
The campaign is betting that donations will surge again should prosecutions occur.
Trump has previously raised money in legal matters, including after a raid on his Florida mansion in August as part of an investigation into classified documents.
Trump is raising money while the 2024 Republican primary is forming.
