Trump raises $6.6M in 6 days after federal charges — after $10M in 5 days from NY case
WASHINGTON — Former President Donald Trump’s campaign said Wednesday it had raised $6.6 million since Trump was indicted on 37 federal charges for allegedly mishandling classified records.
The haul follows a $10 million windfall over five days including the 77-year-old’s April 4 arrest on 34 New York state criminal counts linked to 2016 hush money payments, showing declining but still substantial revenue from Trump’s appeals based on his legal woes.
“Since deranged Jack Smith took the unprecedented step of weaponizing the justice system to attack his political opponent, [Trump’s campaign] has raised more than $6.6 million in just a few short days,” the Trump campaign said in a press release.
The amount announced Wednesday includes more than $2 million raised at an in-person Bedminster, NJ, fundraiser Tuesday night that included a fiery 30-minute speech from Trump after he returned from his arraignment in Miami federal court.
