Former President Donald Trump is leveraging a dire warning to persuade his MAGA base to inject funds into his campaign, suggesting that without their financial support, Democrats will claim victory while the media declares the MAGA movement dead. This appeal for donations comes without any mention of recent legal setbacks Trump has faced, which include civil court rulings that have collectively cost him over half a billion dollars in damages.

“We have 24 hours until all hell breaks loose,” reads an all-caps text blasted out Thursday afternoon. “It’s bad. Really bad.”

Trump’s fundraising message, aiming to inspire at least a million supporters to contribute a recommended $47 each, boldly proclaims him as the greatest president in history. He hints at an impending Federal Election Commission (FEC) deadline, described only as “critical,” likely referring to a routine monthly campaign finance reporting deadline given the timing of the message on February 29.

“But I know that’s not true,” Trump writes, again in all-caps. “It’s time for all of us to send the Democrats, the media, and the Globalist Deep State a message they never forget.” This tactic of stressing urgent FEC deadlines with “hyperbole, puffery, and overstatement” is a time-tested tradition of both camps.

This approach of highlighting FEC deadlines to spur donations, often characterized by exaggeration and bold claims, is a common strategy employed by political campaigns across the spectrum. With the 2024 election cycle still in its early stages and far from reaching its climax, it’s anticipated that Trump will continue to reach out to his supporters for financial contributions in the lead-up to the elections.

“The only thing standing between freedom & the TOTAL OBLITERATION of our country is your support,” Trump warns. “From the bottom of my heart, I’m asking for you to stand with me just one more time.”
