Including impeachment, Trump has raised $34 million through 2023


NEW YORK (AP) — Former U.S. President Donald Trump has raised more than $34 million for his 2024 White House bid, according to his campaign, with donations surging since the criminal charges against him were announced in New York. . His total since the March 30 indictment came close to what he had banked in the previous three months.

Trump’s latest fundraising report, to be filed with the Federal Election Commission on Saturday, shows he raised more than $18.8 million in the first three months of the year between his main campaign account and a joint fundraising account, the campaign said.

A total of $4 million between January 1 and March 31 was paid to Trump after a Manhattan grand jury indicted him on March 30 in connection with the hush money case stemming from the US election. 2016.

The fundraising figures were first reported by Politico.

Trump began fundraising on news of his indictment and said his campaign had raised $15.4 million since the indictments were announced and the fundraising reporting deadline on Saturday.

Trump, who has been the subject of several other criminal investigations, has tried to use his legal troubles to rally his supporters, saying the cases are all politically motivated. He described the charges in New York as “election meddling” but said they would help build support for him.

Trump has dominated the GOP field in the early stages of the 2024 presidential race. But many big-dollar GOP donors have tried to steer their support elsewhere this time around. Before he was indicted, his campaign fundraising had lagged behind the huge sums he raised in days or hours when he was president.

Only a few candidates have officially entered the race, Trump’s UN ambassador, former South Carolina governor Nikki Haley; former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson, who announced just days after Trump’s indictment was announced; and tech entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy.

Other candidates, including Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, are expected to enter the race by mid-July.
