Former President Donald Trump’s political action committee has announced that, in the 24 hours since the former president got indicted by a New York grand jury, his 2024 presidential campaign has raised over $4 million.

This outpouring of donations is, according to Make America Great Again Inc., Trump’s political action committee, a grassroots reaction by ordinary Americans outraged by the probe into the former president, which it described as a “witch hunt.”

The PAC said in a statement Friday that since a grand jury empaneled by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg voted on Thursday to indict the former president, his campaign has seen donations soar.

“This incredible surge of grassroots contributions confirms that the American people see the indictment of President Trump as a disgraceful weaponization of our justice system by a Soros-funded prosecutor,” the statement said, noting that over 25 percent came from first-time donors.

Trump’s campaign called Bragg’s investigation of the former president an “unprecedented political persecution” and “blatant interference” in the 2024 presidential election, with Trump being the leading Republican candidate.

Bragg has disputed the characterization of his probe as politically motivated. Leslie B. Dubeck, the general counsel for Bragg’s office, wrote a letter to top House Republican chairmen, denouncing what she called “baseless and inflammatory allegations that our investigation is politically motivated.”

The PAC pointed out that the former president’s campaign is largely being funded by smaller contributions and that this shows that the support he enjoys comes from ordinary Americans not special interest groups.

“With an average contribution of only $34, President Trump’s 2024 campaign is funded by an unmatched coalition of hardworking patriots who are fed up with special interest donors like Soros spending billions of dollars to influence our elections,” the statement said.

Many of Trump’s supporters have referred to Bragg as a “Soros-funded prosecutor.” Billionaire financier George Soros contributed significantly to the Color of Change PAC, which endorsed Bragg in his campaign for Manhattan district attorney in 2021 and pledged over $1 million to back his campaign.
