In May, despite the conviction of the former president by a Manhattan jury, the Trump campaign and the Republican National Committee (RNC) managed to raise an impressive $141 million. This amount was contributed by over 2 million donations, averaging at $70.27 each. Additionally, approximately 25 percent of the donors were new supporters of the 2024 campaign. Furthermore, other organizations backing the former president reportedly raised $150 million during the same month. In total, the Trump campaign and these affiliated organizations collectively raised nearly $300 million in May, as stated in their official announcement.

Donations received were described as a “response of support for President Trump while facing the sham Biden trial and verdict that outraged and motivated Americans from every walk of life.”

“We are moved by the outpouring of support for President Donald J. Trump,” Chris LaCivita and Susie Wiles, senior advisers for the Trump campaign, said in a statement. “The American people saw right through Crooked Joe Biden’s rigged trial, and sent Biden and Democrats a powerful message.”
