Donald Trump’s campaign team announced Friday that it had raised $35 million in online donations following his criminal conviction, stressing that the verdict had galvanized his support “like never before.”

“Within minutes of the verdict being announced, our digital fundraising system was overwhelmed with support [des donateurs]and, despite temporary delays attributable to the volume of online traffic, President Trump raised $34.8 million in small amounts,” campaign advisers Chris LaCivita and Susie Wiles said in a statement.

They specified that this record figure represents almost double the best fundraising day for the campaign in WinRed, the official donations platform of the Republican Party.
And 30% of these donations were made by new donors.

“Joe the Crook and the Democrats, with their witch hunt, have awakened the MAGA movement [“Make America Great Again”, slogan de Donald Trump, NDLR] like never before,” greeted his campaign advisors.

Donald Trump was found guilty Thursday in New York of all the charges against him in a criminal trial, the first of a former American president, for having falsified documents in order to hide payments intended for buy the silence of a former porn star.

Judge Juan Merchan set sentencing for July 11.
Donald Trump has a habit of turning scandals to his advantage. Moments after his guilt was announced, his campaign website began redirecting visitors to a fundraising page declaring that he was a “political prisoner.”

The page remained blocked for almost an hour due to heavy traffic on the site. On Friday, Donald Trump denounced a “very unfair” and rigged trial, and announced that he would “appeal this scam”.

The Republican candidate regularly describes his legal woes as a battle against the forces of evil that are the “deep state” – a nebulous entity which, according to followers of conspiracy theories, operates behind the scenes of the government – ​​and
l’administration Biden.

The Republican likes to portray himself as a martyr to the cause, ready to sacrifice his freedom for the good of his supporters.

In April, he made the link between his situation and that of Nelson Mandela, the South African anti-apartheid activist who remained imprisoned for 27 years.
