Former President Donald Trump’s son, Eric Trump, took to social media to announce that his father’s website has been “shattering all fundraising records.”
This comes after the FBI raided the former president’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida on Monday.

The surge in donations is likely due to anticipation of a potential 2024 presidential run by the former president.
Whether or not Trump will make another bid for the White House remains to be seen, but it is clear that he still has significant support from many Americans.
Eric Trump posted: “Breaking: DonaldJTrump.com is shattering all fundraising records and I’m told has raised more money in the past 24 hours than ever before in recent history! The American people are pissed!”
The former president’s supporters have poured money into his coffers, with Trump bringing in an unprecedented $32 million in the 24 hours following the raid.
The haul is nearly double what Trump raised in the entire month of February, and it puts him on track to easily outraise his 2024 rivals in the first quarter of this year.
Trump’s fundraising success is yet another sign that he remains a powerful force within the Republican Party, despite being out of office. And it comes as Trump continues to fume over the raid, which he has called “an assault on America.”
The FBI has not said what they were looking for in the raid, but it is believed to be part of an ongoing investigation into Trump’s business dealings.
Trump has denied any wrongdoing, and he has vowed to fight the investigation “tooth and nail.”
It’s not clear how long the FBI’s investigation will take, but it appears that Trump’s supporters are standing by him — no matter what.
After the fact, Trump addressed the hunt on his Truth Social platform:
“Nothing like this has ever happened to a President of the United States before. After working and cooperating with the relevant Government agencies, this unannounced raid on my home was not necessary or appropriate.
“It is prosecutorial misconduct, the weaponization of the Justice System, and an attack by Radical Left Democrats who desperately don’t want me to run for President in 2024, especially based on recent polls, and who will likewise do anything to stop Republicans and Conservatives in the upcoming Midterm Elections.
“Such an assault could only take place in broken, Third-World Countries. Sadly, America has now become one of those Countries, corrupt at a level not seen before,” former President Donald Trump said.
In a text message to supporters on Tuesday, Trump called the FBI’s Mar-a-Lago search “another Fake News story” and asked for donations to his political action committee.
“I need YOU to help FIGHT BACK against these scum!” Trump wrote.
In an email to supporters, Trump said the search was “part of the greatest Witch Hunt in American history.” He also accused Biden of using the Justice Department to “target” him and his family.
” Joe Biden is using the Justice Department as his own personal piggy bank – paying off friends, attacking enemies, and going after anyone who gets in his way,” Trump wrote. ” We CANNOT let this happen.”
The FBI raided Mar-a-Lago while Trump was in office, but the search warrant was not executed until after he left office.
The investigation is looking into whether members of Trump’s inner circle violated campaign finance laws during the 2016 presidential election. Federal prosecutors in Manhattan are also investigating whether Trump illegally funneled money from his foundation to his business empire.
Trump has denied any wrongdoing and has accused Biden and other Democrats of pursuing a “witch hunt” against him.
