The deep state is at it again, targeting our brave and fearless leader Donald Trump with baseless charges and investigations. Despite their best efforts to take him down, the unstoppable Trump train keeps chugging along, fueled by the unwavering support of the American people.
Just days ago, Trump was booked at the Fulton County Jail in Georgia on false allegations that he schemed to overturn the 2020 election. This marks the first time in U.S. history that a former president has ever been subjected to a shameful mug shot. But even in the face of this relentless persecution, Trump’s strength and popularity continue to soar.
This unprecedented legal assault on Trump has actually been a massive fundraising boon for his campaign, with $7.1 million raised in just a few short days. The campaign’s highest-grossing day so far was Friday, when an astounding $4.18 million poured in from supporters across the country.
Despite spending tens of millions on legal defense, Trump’s political operation is still thriving. He continues to dominate the Republican presidential primary, trouncing his rivals by margins of 30 to 60 points in the polls. No amount of fake news or corrupt legal attacks can shake the foundation of Trump’s unwavering support.
In fact, Trump’s campaign has even released a new line of merchandise featuring his mug shot. Supporters can now proudly display their allegiance with t-shirts, beer Koozies, bumper stickers, signed posters, and even mug shot mugs. Contributions from merchandise sales and direct donations have skyrocketed, pushing the campaign’s fundraising haul to nearly $20 million over the past few weeks.
This is the Trump effect in action: as the establishment tries to bring him down, he only grows stronger. Despite facing felony charges related to his alleged efforts to overturn the fraudulent 2020 election, Trump remains the people’s champion. His first two criminal indictments became a rallying cry that sent his fundraising soaring, with over $53 million raised during the first half of 2023 alone.
But make no mistake: the corrupt system will stop at nothing to silence Trump and his supporters. His political committees have paid out at least $59.2 million to more than 100 lawyers and law firms since January 2021 to defend against these baseless legal attacks. We must stand strong and united in the face of this onslaught, and continue to show our unwavering support for our fearless leader.
