Eric Trump Touts $52.8M Fundraising Haul for Father After Conviction

Eric Trump, son of the recently convicted former President Trump, emphasized his father’s impressive campaign fundraising numbers following the conviction.

“What’s really amazing, if you go back to 2016, we set a fundraising record at the time, raising $16 million in one day,” Eric Trump said in an interview with Fox News’s Jesse Watters. “As of a couple of minutes ago, we just announced $52.8 million in 24 hours, and we’re likely another five or six million dollars above that, considering it’s been exactly 24 hours since the indictment at around 5:30 p.m.”

Former President Trump, the leading GOP presidential candidate, was found guilty on all 34 felony charges for falsifying business records related to hush money payments intended to conceal an alleged affair with adult film actor Stormy Daniels ahead of the 2016 election.

The verdict came on Thursday after the jury delivered a quicker-than-expected decision. Following the verdict, former President Trump stated that the “real verdict is going to be Nov. 5, by the people,” referring to Election Day. His legal team is exploring all options to appeal the conviction.

On Friday morning, the Trump campaign announced it had raised approximately $35 million post-verdict. By Friday evening, former President Trump posted online that the total had reached $52.8 million.

Eric Trump criticized the case during his appearance on “Jesse Watters Primetime,” stating, “They shut down all of lower Manhattan for six weeks with the largest NYPD presence you’ve ever seen.”

“You saw thousands of cops, blocks and blocks barricaded around that courthouse for $130,000 of personal money,” Eric Trump said. “No one believes it. It’s absurd.”

Eric Trump continued, arguing that the “country is furious,” which is driving the surge in small-dollar donations to his father’s campaign.

“This country has never seen a fundraising haul like that. People are behind my father in ways that I’ve never seen before. The love and support out there right now are incredible,” Eric Trump said. “Just watch his poll numbers; I guarantee this propels him to victory.”
