The group supporting the former President, Donald Trump, has collected more than $9.4 million following his recent photograph session in Fulton County, Georgia.
In August, the Trump campaign amassed around $20 million, with almost half of it received after the ex-president’s image was captured, based on recent findings.
Merchandise featuring Trump has also seen significant sales, with about 36,000 T-shirts garnering $1.7 million. In addition, sales from over 24,000 coffee mugs amounted to $864,000, and 8,600 posters contributed $352,000, as stated in the findings.
Proceeds from the sale of these items are designated for Trump’s campaign initiatives and not intended for any legal expenses, the findings confirm.
Authorities in Fulton County deemed it necessary for the 45th president to have his photograph taken.
Reflecting on the event, Trump expressed his discomfort, emphasizing his belief in his innocence, stating, “It’s an unsettling feeling, especially when you believe you’re not at fault.”
UPDATE: @TeamTrump raised $9.4m since the mugshot; surpassed $20m mark for the month of August alone.
Mugshot merch sales have spiked:
T-Shirt: 36,000 ($1.7m)
Coffee Mug: 24,000 ($864k)
