Trump’s Mugshot Has Already Made Him Millions In Campaign Funding

The Trump campaign has come a long way from its NFT days.

Since former President Donald Trump’s booking at an Atlanta jail last Thursday, his campaign has amassed a staggering $7.1 million, as per figures disclosed to Politico. This includes a single-day achievement of $4.18 million on Friday, marking his highest 24-hour collection so far.

Items like shirts, posters, bumper stickers, and beverage coolers featuring Trump’s stern mugshot with the tagline “NEVER SURRENDER!” have been sold on his online store at prices ranging from $12 to $34.

But it’s not all merch sales. Emails, text messages, and social media posts have spurred online donors. During his return from Atlanta to Bedminster, NJ, Trump issued his first tweet in over two years, urging supporters to visit his website. The website showcases his mugshot and solicits contributions to “evict Crooked Joe Biden from the White House and SAVE AMERICA during this dark chapter in our nation’s history.”

Trump’s campaign asserts an almost $20 million gain over the past three weeks, coinciding with his indictments tied to the January 6 Capitol riot and his efforts to overturn the 2020 Georgia vote count. 

This figure surpasses half of his initial seven-month 2024 race funding. Earlier this year, his campaign was struggling to raise money.
