Trump team says over $7 million raised since mugshot

Donald Trump’s presidential campaign says it has raised $7.1 million since the Republican billionaire’s mugshot was released after he was booked on racketeering and conspiracy charges at a Georgia jail this week.

T-shirts, mugs, stickers and beverage coolers bearing the mug shot — arguably now the most famous in US history — were put out by Trump’s team within hours of the photo’s release.

“Close to $20m raised in the last 3 weeks, coinciding with the DC indictment and Atlanta mugshot,” campaign spokesman Steven Cheung confirmed to AFP on Sunday.

“$7.1m since Thursday (Atlanta mugshot). $4.18m yesterday alone, the highest grossing day of the entire campaign,” he continued.

“Organic money has skyrocketed, especially after President Trump tweeted out the picture along with the website.”

AFP cannot independently verify the claims.
