It’s no secret that Donald Trump isn’t the type to bite his tongue very often.
He’s going to say anything and everything that comes to mind whether it’s good for him or not.
But now Donald Trump got the ultimate revenge on Alvin Bragg without even uttering a single word.
Democrats and their media allies celebrated Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s indictment of former President Donald Trump on 34 felonies as if they’d already thrown him in prison.
They thought that one of their many witch hunts had finally stopped the former President in his tracks.
But based on the latest reports, it appears the indictment has had the exact opposite result.
Obviously, the first few months of Trump’s third White House run haven’t exactly gone according to plan – after suffering major losses in the 2022 Midterms, he wrapped himself up in the Kanye West anti-Semitism fiasco, called for the “termination” of the Constitution, lost his right to attorney-client privilege in his classified documents scandal, and – as previously mentioned – is now under indictment on 34 felonies.
Whether self-inflicted or simply the result of Democrats’ witch hunts, the less than ideal start put Trump on the back foot, leading to major red flags over his fundraising.
While the former President has done as well with small dollar donations as most any Republican throughout his three Presidential runs, his issues have caused many of the GOP donors who typically write much larger checks – and previously supported his campaigns – to throw their support behind the likes of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and Senator Tim Scott (R-SC).
But as Democrats, like former President Barack Obama and Senator Bernie Sanders (Socialist-VT), have proven, an army of small dollar donors can move mountains.
And fortunately for Trump, his army of small dollar donors have been electrified by the indictment against him, leading to a major resurgence in his fundraising efforts.
According to a report from Breitbart, the former President has already raised over $34 million since January 1, but it’s what’s happened since his indictment that has everyone talking.
“Trump’s latest fundraising report was due Saturday with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) reportedly showing he raised more than $18.8 million between his main campaign account and a joint fundraising account over the the first three months of the year, the campaign said,” Breitbart reported. “Of that total for the Jan. 1-March 31 period, $4 million came in after Trump was indicted March 30 by a grand jury in Manhattan on charges stemming from the 2016 election.”
On top of that, in the two weeks immediately following Trump’s indictment – which essentially served as the first two weeks of the new fundraising quarter – the former President raised some $12 million, nearly two-thirds of the total he raised in the first three months of the year combined.
Clearly, Democrats’ hope that indicting Trump on 34 completely outrageous felonies would be enough to squash any hope he had at returning to the White House hasn’t come to fruition.
Since the indictment, polls on a hypothetical 2024 rematch between the two nominees for the 2020 Presidential election have indicated that Trump has taken a slight lead over President Joe Biden.
In fact, Trump has even taken a lead in Real Clear Politics’ polling average – which combines a number of the most credible, accurate, and respected polls in the nation – something he was never once able to do during his 2020 loss to Biden.
Needless to say, with Donald Trump’s campaign getting back on the right track, it looks as though he may get the ultimate revenge on Democrats, like Alvin Bragg, without saying a word.
