Trump turns conviction into cash, with a record fundraising haul following guilty verdicts in trial

Donald Trump is cashing in on his convictions in the first trial of a former or current president in the nation’s history.

The former president’s campaign announced on Friday morning that it had hauled in $34.8 million in fundraising from 6pm ET to midnight on Thursday, immediately after Trump was found guilty of all 34 felony counts in his criminal trial in New York City.

The campaign highlighted in a release that they raked in “a record shattering small dollar fundraising haul” as Trump battles President Biden in a 2024 election rematch.

They said the haul was “nearly double the biggest day ever recorded for the Trump campaign on the WinRed platform” and emphasized that the guilty verdicts “have awakened the MAGA movement like never before.”
