According to Trump’s senior advisor Jason Miller, one-fourth of the massive donations former President Donald received in the 24 hours following the news of his indictment came from first-time contributors.
Miller stated that Trump is still optimistic going into his trial next week and claimed that this most recent witch hunt will “backfire,” harming Democrats and Trump detractors.
“Even Democrats don’t want Joe Biden to be the nominee,” so they feel “like they’ve got to take it upon themselves” to defeat Trump now, according to Miller.
Miller noted that they are “almost guaranteeing that President Trump will receive the Republican nomination, but they’re also energizing his base and independents who say, You know what? Why on earth don’t you people care about the violence that occurs on our streets? Why don’t you care about the issues that our nation is already facing, like inflation?” he said.
He cited the statistics as evidence that “this is so clearly political,” adding, “I think it’s going to backfire on the Democrats in a big way.”
He added, “President Trump’s campaign raised $4 million just in a 24-hour period in the first 48 hours after this indictment was announced,” before mentioning a startling fact about those contributions.
“Miller noted that a quarter of those donations, or a fourth, came from individuals who had never donated to President Trump before, not even during his first two presidential campaigns.”
“Take a minute to consider that. I’m confident that everyone listening right now has, at some time or another, discovered themselves on a Trump email list or got a request to assist with the first two campaigns. To have a fourth of the four million donations,” Miller said.
“The typical donation is $34 Regular individuals and small-dollar contributors are involved. A quarter of these is actually brand-new individuals. To address your point, Matt, these are the Dems. and independents who have always believed, ‘Man, this is — you know, I really like what Trump’s doing. A quarter of these is actually brand-new individuals. Maybe I listen to the media too much sometimes,’ or ‘You know, they influence me,’ but these are people who are saying, ‘You know what? It’s enough already. Enough with the political witch chase and the corrupt system. I’m going to speak out for President Trump,'” Miller declared.
“For someone who has been for the past seven or eight years, in that political arena, that amount of fresh supporters is extraordinary,” he said.
