Since the indictment related to the hush money payment, Trump has raised $7 million

Donald Trump, the former President, has asserted that his campaign received $7 million in donations since his indictment was made public in the Stormy Daniels hush money case last Thursday.

“In only three days since news of the indictment, {Trump’s] campaign has raised a record $7M,” Trump spokesman Jason Miller wrote on Twitter.

Donald Trump’s supporters and Republican leaders have been rallying behind him ahead of his anticipated arraignment on Tuesday, resulting in a massive $7 million donation haul for his campaign.

However, the claim made by Trump’s advisor, Jason Miller, cannot be confirmed as official fundraising reports are only available quarterly. Trump’s campaign has been using the indictment as a basis for fundraising pitches, denouncing it as a partisan witch hunt.

Conservative media hosts and GOP lawmakers have urged supporters to donate to Trump’s campaign to show his critics a lesson.

Trump’s popularity in Republican presidential polls has increased significantly since his announcement of a potential indictment.

In some polls, he leads potential rival Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis by almost a 2-1 margin, while former Vice President Mike Pence and Nikki Haley trail badly in single digits. Despite this, former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson has criticized Trump but is considered unlikely to win support on a national level.

DeSantis has angered some of Trump’s die-hard supporters by criticizing the upcoming case and stating that he doesn’t know “what goes into paying hush money to a porn star.”

Trump has been attacking DeSantis for his supposed support for cuts in Social Security and Medicare, and his campaign has launched a TV ad campaign saying that Republican primary voters don’t know DeSantis well enough.
