(GoRealNewsNow.com) – To the dismay of Joe Biden and Democrats, Donald Trump got huge news in the wake of his recent criminal charges and arrests.
Trump has accumulated almost $20 million in recent weeks. According to Trump’s campaign spokesperson on Saturday, this fundraising surge coincides with his indictment on federal and state charges related to his allegations about the 2020 election.
After taking his mug shot last Thursday in relation to an Atlanta, Georgia, fraud and racketeering case, the former president amassed $7.1 million, as conveyed by Trump’s spokesperson Steven Cheung on X, which was formerly known as Twitter.
On just Friday, Trump’s fundraising totaled $4.18 million, marking the most lucrative day for his campaign, stated Cheung.
Trump’s mug shot, released by a Georgia sheriff on Thursday, has since been used on merchandise like T-shirts, mugs, shot glasses, posters, and even bobblehead dolls by supporters and critics.
The photo, featuring Trump in a red tie, with shiny hair and a stern look, was captured when the former Republican presidential nominee was apprehended on numerous felony charges. These charges are linked to his purported endeavors to challenge the 2020 election outcome.
Having been elected as president in 2016 and later losing to Democrat Joe Biden in 2020, Trump is once again vying for the Republican presidential nomination.
At present, Trump is grappling with four separate indictments. Two of these indictments are connected to his assertions about the 2020 election and the Jan. 6, 2021, incident where his supporters besieged the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C.
Trump has vehemently refuted all these allegations.
On the 15th of August, a Georgia grand jury indicted Trump following Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis’s probe into his efforts to contest his 2020 election defeat to Biden in that state.
Earlier, on Aug. 3, Trump entered a plea of not guilty in a federal court in Washington to charges presented by Special Counsel Jack Smith. These charges allege that Trump conspired to deceive the U.S., hindering Congress from affirming Biden’s victory in the 2020 elections and depriving citizens of their right to a legitimate election.
In addition to the abovementioned charges, Trump denied accusations of illegally retaining classified documents post his presidential tenure and falsifying business documents in a New York case. This latter case pertains to alleged hush money payments to adult film actress Stormy Daniels before the 2016 presidential race.
