Indictment turbocharges Trump's fundraising

April 16, 2023

The figures provide a snapshot of how Trump’s arrest has, at least for the time being, shaped the Republican primary. “The wall-to-wall coverage just put him top of mind for donors.”Whether Trump’s torrid fundraising pace persists — or gradually returns to its slower, pre-indictment level — is uncertain. (The first quarter ended on March 31, the day after Trump’s indictment was first confirmed, meaning only a small segment of Trump’s post-indictment fundraising is reflected in the first-quarter figures.) Trump’s campaign has been taking steps to bolster its fundraising. The campaign has also tapped Parks Bennett, the owner of the Republican digital firm Campaign Inbox, to spearhead its online fundraising.
