Trump Campaign Amasses $141 Million War Chest In May Despite Conviction

Following the unprecedented conviction of presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump last week, the Trump campaign and the Republican National Committee (RNC) raised a combined $141 million in donations in May, a staggering amount that overshadows the Biden campaign.

According to a press release from the Trump campaign, the donation surge was fueled by over two million donations that averaged $70.27. Of those two million supporters, 25 percent were first-time donors to Trump's 2024 campaign. When the Trump campaign's donation numbers and other Republican groups supporting the president are taken into account, the total fundraising haul for Trump in May reached nearly $300 million. 

"We are moved by the outpouring of support for President Donald J. Trump," Trump campaign advisors Chris LaCivita and Susie Wiles said in a statement. "The American people saw right through Crooked Joe Biden's rigged trial, and sent Biden and Democrats a powerful message."

Trump's fundraising momentum gained steam following his conviction in the hush-money case brought against him by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg (D). As previously reported by the DC Enquier, the jury found Trump guilty on each of the 34 counts of falsifying business records. Following the verdict, Trump told the press that he would continue to fight in the courts to achieve justice and continued to say that the trial against him was election interference. Judge Juan Merchan scheduled Trump's sentencing hearing for July 11th, just days before the Republican National Convention in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Just 24 hours after the verdict came down, the Trump campaign's donation page was flooded with eager supporters who wanted to give to the campaign. There was so much traffic to the WinRed page that the site crashed as it attempted to handle the $34.8 million sent to the campaign on the first day following the conviction.

"The American people saw the Biden Trials for what they are – a sham attempt to keep President Trump away from voters and confined in a courtroom," RNC Chairman Michael Whatley and Co-Chair Lara Trump said in a statement, per Breitbart. "It didn't work because voters understand the clear contrast between President Trump's record of success and Joe Biden's failures."

The Democrats attempted to use lawfare against President Trump to take him out of the race for the presidency, but instead, it just emboldened his supporters and made him more electorally successful than at any other point in his political career. National and swing state polls show Trump taking a decisive lead against Biden as millions of Americans see through the politicized persecution of the leading 2024 presidential candidate.
