(ConcernedPatriot.com) – Since turning himself in at the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office on Thursday, former president Donald Trump’s campaign has raised $7.1 million.
Trump has turned himself in after being indicted by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis and 18 other individuals on 41 counts spanning 98 pages. This marks one of four criminal prosecutions he’s currently facing.
On Thursday, Trump posted a picture of his mugshot and a link encouraging his followers to contribute to his campaign, making his first appearance on Twitter in two years.

“If you are doing poorly due to the sinister people in control of our country right now, don’t even think about donating,” Trump’s webpage read. “But if you can, please make a contribution to evict Crooked Joe Biden from the White House and SAVE AMERICA during this dark chapter in our nation’s history.”
Trump’s campaign also sold merchandise with photos of the mugshot with the tagline “NEVER SURRENDER!”
According to Trump aide Steven Cheung, Friday witnessed the highest-earning fundraising day of the campaign thus far, with $4.18 million raised.
Close to $20m raised in the last 3 weeks, coinciding with indictment in DC and the Atlanta mugshot.
$7.1m since Thursday (Atlanta mugshot).
$4.18m yesterday (Friday) alone, the highest grossing day of the entire campaign.

“Organic money has skyrocketed, especially after @realDonaldTrump tweeted out the picture along with the website URL,” Cheung added.
In addition, the Trump campaign has raised about $20 million in the past three weeks after being charged by Willis and Jack Smith for allegedly participating in the January 6 Capitol Rotations.
According to a campaign aide, the Trump campaign will likely surpass the $20 million threshold in the coming days.
Similar increases in money have been seen for Trump’s campaign following the three prior indictments of the former president.
In the Georgia case, Trump was granted free on a $200,000 bond, the largest amount of any of his co-defendants.
