The left continues to come after former president Donald Trump, and he continues to get stronger as a result. With every indictment and fake news story, the GOP frontrunner gains momentum, much to the chagrin of the Democrat party. All of the political persecution has been intended to discredit the former president, but much like the left discovered in 2016, Donald Trump has a loyal fanbase.
It has been attempt after attempt by liberals to discredit Donald Trump, often painting him as some sort of Russian cats paw or Chinese puppet in order to sully his good name and tarnish his many achievements while in office.
Naturally, all of this has failed as Trump has simply gained steam at the polls, and the leftist agenda is further exposed for what it is: a desperate attempt by a failing political party to hold onto power. Americans are seeing through the ruse, and Donald Trump’s fundraising numbers prove it.
President Trump and his campaign are aggressive fundraisers, putting his face on everything from coffee cups to t-shirts, but the most recent witch-hunt indictment has given extra fuel to the fundraising fire. Since the now-famous mugshot in Atlanta, President Trump’s campaign has been raking in the cash.
In the three weeks up to and including the fiasco in Fulton County, the Trump campaign collected nearly $20 million, but Trump’s camp confirmed that more than $7 million was collected after the infamous mugshot. Friday alone, more than $4 million was collected.
Obviously, the Democrats expected a completely different scenario. However, President Trump’s supporters remember the job he did for the country and are also acutely aware of the shape the nation is in under Joe Biden, and have loosened their purse strings accordingly.
The campaign released a statement on recent fundraising: “Organic money has skyrocketed, especially after President Trump tweeted out the picture along with the website,”
It certainly doesn’t hurt that President Trump also has a burgeoning line of merchandise to help inflate the numbers. It is one thing to persuade donors to give just to support the candidate, but when you can get a coozie or t-shirt, that simply ups the ante.
Among the items that are being offered are hats, t-shirts, can coolers, bumper stickers, and posters, most emblazed with the mugshot and the simple tagline of “NEVER SUUENDER.” Clearly, when President Trump decided on the now-historical glare in his mugshot, he realized what exceptional merchandise it would make.
Considering the popularity of President Trump right now, there are expected to be scammers trying to make money off the president’s image. For those folks who are seeking to cash in on Donald Trump, the campaign has a message. Trump aide Chris LaCivita posted to “X” on Thursday: “If you are a campaign, PAC, scammer and you try raising money off the mugshot of @realDonaldTrump and you have not received prior permission …WE ARE COMING AFTER YOU … you will NOT SCAM DONORS.”
It is a stark warning to scammers and one Democrats should have heeded. If you mess with Donald Trump and his loyal supporters, they will eventually come for you, peacefully, of course. The outpouring of support shown for the GOP leader is tremendous, and there will be many t-shirts, hats, bumper stickers, and voters at the ballot boxes in 2024.
