Election campaigning in the US is expensive. In 2020, a total of around $6.6 billion was spent on presidential campaigns, according to CNBC.

In other words, Donald Trump’s desire to become president costs money. This year he also has to spend large sums on feuds in the American judiciary.

Bloomberg writes that documents submitted to the American Election Commission show that Trump spent 51.2 million dollars on legal costs in 2023. This corresponds to 536 million Norwegian kroner.

25.5 million of these were used in the first half of the year, and 25.7 million were used in the second half of the year. Trump’s so-called PAC, called Save America, is the organization the money goes through.

In total, Save America received 36.7 million dollars in the second half of 2023. This means that about 70 percent of the money was used for legal purposes, writes Bloomberg.

In January, the organization had $5.1 million in the bank. As a result, it may be necessary to collect significant sums this year as well.

Dredged in millions after indictments

Of the money that came in in the second half of the year, $30 million has been donated back from Save America’s donation to Trump’s so-called super PAC in 2022.

After Trump was indicted in the case of kickbacks to an American porn star, the Trump campaign used the opportunity to raise funds. In the following days, it brought in 15.4 million dollars, writes Bloomberg.

After he was prosecuted in the so-called document case, 6.6 million dollars was collected. He also collected 7.1 million after he was arrested and charged related to the 2020 election, according to the news agency.

Trump received $6.6 million from the grassroots. 10 percent of this money goes to finance the legal challenges.
