Trump Post-Conviction: “This is a Fascist State,” Raises 53 Million in 24 Hours

The mogul's reaction to the verdict in the Stormy Daniels case

In the 24 hours after the verdict in the Stormy Daniels case, where 12 jurors unanimously found Donald Trump guilty on all 34 counts, the Republican candidate’s campaign raised an extraordinary $53 million in donations.

This was announced by Trump’s campaign staff themselves, who saw record money raised thanks to a slew of small donors eager to show their affinity for the former president. “President Trump and our campaign are immensely grateful for this outpouring of support from patriots across our country. President Trump is fighting to save our nation and November 5 is the day Americans will deliver the real verdict,” Trump’s staff said in a statement.

And hours after the verdict, the tycoon gave a 40-minute speech at his Trump Tower, the same place where he launched his campaign in 2015. Trump spoke of a “rigged, disgraceful trial,” which he said was only possible in a “fascist country.” Behind it all is Joe Biden, “the dumbest, most incompetent, and most dishonest president America has ever had,” supported by a “biased” prosecutor, while the judge was defined as “corrupt.”

And more: “If they can do this to me, they can do this to anyone. This is more important than me and my presidency, I’m fighting for our Constitution. What is happening to me should not happen to any president,” putting it off until “the most important day,” which is November 5, when the presidential election will be held.
