Trump Campaign Receives Large Cash Boost Amid Trial

Former President Donald Trump received a significant financial boost as his criminal trial in New York began. The former president received a significant increase in donations that could be vital to his efforts against President Joe Biden later this year.

According to new Republican National Committee (RNC) co-chair Lara Trump her father-in-law received more than $1 million in donations following the first day of the trial.

“The people of America spoke up yesterday in support of Donald Trump to the tune of a million and a half dollars raised for his campaign,” she said. “The average donation was $28, so even here, in the abysmal Biden economy, people are coming out and they are financially supporting this president.”

The former president is facing charges related to reported payments to former adult film actress Stormy Daniels after a brief relationship. The case is expected to be decided within the next eight weeks and could be affected by hearings before the U.S. Supreme Court next week regarding whether or not presidents can be prosecuted for acts they commit in office.

Following the second day of the trial, the former president visited a store in Manhattan where he was joined by enthusiastic supporters who chanted his name and “four more years.” Trump made comments to the media, saying that the trial against him was a sham.

He also pledged to help clean up New York City, citing the increase in crime there over the last five years.

The increased fundraising haul could be a positive sign for the rest of Trump’s campaign. The former president is also facing charges in Fulton County, Georgia and two federal cases, which could significantly boost campaign contributions and increase his media profile.

Trump’s improved fundraising also comes amid a series of polls that show the former president in a strong position. He has led in a series of national polls, as well as in a number of the important swing states that could decide the Electoral College in November.
