Trump Turns the Tables – He Played Them All!
(NewsReady.com) – When the FBI raided former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home earlier this month, it looked a lot like a political play aimed at damaging Trump’s prospects for another run at the White House. If that’s what it was, it’s backfired massively. In the raid’s aftermath, Trump has received a tidal wave of support — and cash.

Did the FBI search Trump’s Palm Beach home as part of a national security investigation, or were they looking for a way to prevent him from running again in 2024? That’s the question many Conservatives have been asking for the last two weeks, and it seems their sympathy is all with the former president.
On August 17, The Washington Post reported that, in the aftermath of the raid, Trump’s Save America political action committee (PAC) has been swamped with donations, bringing in millions in new funding that could help turbocharge an election campaign.
Over the last few months, Trump’s PAC has been averaging $200,000-$300,000 per day in donations — but after the raid, that jumped dramatically. People familiar with the former president’s fundraising say there were at least two days where donations topped a million dollars, and it’s still running higher than average. Not only are there more donors than usual, but the average contribution has gone up, too.
Many Republicans predicted the raid would energize Trump and rally his loyal supporters around him. It looks like that’s exactly what’s happening.
