The now-viral mugshot that was taken during Donald Trump‘s booking at an Atlanta jail Thursday has turned into a huge cash windfall for him, Politico reported.

According to Politico’s report, Trump raised $7.1 million since he was booked into the Fulton County jail in Atlanta, Georgia, this Thursday on felony charges in regards to his efforts to overturn the 2020 election.

On Friday alone, Trump raised $4.18 million, making it the single-highest 24-hour period of his campaign to date, according to a person familiar with the totals.

The campaign’s fundraising has been powered by merchandise it has been selling through his online store. After Trump was taken into custody, the campaign began selling shirts, posters, bumper stickers and beverage coolers bearing Trump’s scowling mugshot. The items bear the tagline “NEVER SURRENDER!” and range in price from $12 to $34.

The fundraising blitz illustrates how Trump has parlayed his four indictments into campaign cash, rallying his hardcore supporters.
