Despite being indicted in federal and state proceedings related to his bogus allegations that the 2020 election was stolen from him, former President Donald Trump has raised about $20 million in the previous three weeks, according to a spokeswoman for Trump’s campaign.
The former president has made $7.1 million since appearing Thursday to have his mug shot taken in a racketeering and fraud case in Atlanta, Georgia, Trump spokesman Steven Cheung said on X, the site formerly known as Twitter.
According to Cheung, Trump’s best single day of campaign earnings was Friday, when he raked in $4.18 million.
Friends and adversaries alike have adapted his mugshot from a Georgia courthouse posted on Thursday evening into T-shirts, shot glasses, mugs, posters, and even bobblehead dolls.
Trump’s arrest on more than a dozen felony charges related from his efforts to overturn the 2020 election coincided with the taking of the photo featuring him with a red tie, shiny hair, and an icy frown.
Trump is running for the Republican nomination for president again after losing to Democrat Joe Biden in 2020.
With the attack on the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021 by Trump supporters and two other indictments linked to Trump’s false claims that the election was stolen, the president is facing a total of four charges at the moment.
His denials of guilt are complete.
After an investigation by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, Trump was indicted by a Georgia grand jury on August 15 for trying to overturn his 2020 election loss to Joe Biden in the state.
On August 3, he pled not guilty in federal court in Washington to accusations brought by Special Counsel Jack Smith, who alleges that he planned to defraud the United States by blocking Congress from certifying Biden’s 2020 election victory over him and to deprive voters of their right to a fair election.
In a New York court lawsuit involving the so-called hush money paid to adult film actress Stormy Daniels before the 2016 presidential election, he has pleaded not guilty to allegations of improperly storing sensitive documents after leaving office and of falsifying company records.
