Trump Still Hasn’t Been Arrested But He’s Raked in $1.5 Million Riling Up His Supporters About Seeing Him in Handcuffs

March 23, 2023

The Trump campaign told Fox News that supporters ponied up a whopping $1.5 million since the former president began voicing outrage over a possible indictment and arrest in the Stormy Daniels hush-money coverup case. A fundraising email landed in MAGA inboxes this week calling the D.A.’s case a “witch hunt” and asked supporters to sign a petition calling for the prosecution to be dropped. Trump reportedly had just $25 million in his campaign war chest at the beginning of 2023, down from $105 million at the start of 2022. His own lawyer, Joe Tacopina, predicted Trump’s desire to capitalize on MAGA outrage of a possible indictment. “[Trump] seems to turn everything into a positive and everything into a boost for his campaign,” Tacopina said in an interview this week.
