TL/DR –

Donald Trump reportedly used $50 million from donor contributions to cover legal bills and investigation-related costs in 2023. The funds came from his political action committee, Save America, which had to request refunds of $60 million from other Trump PACs due to depletion, out of which only $42.5 million has been returned from MAGA Inc. Trump, currently facing four criminal indictments and other potential trials, has been directing 10% of all campaign donations to Save America to fund his defense team.

Trump ordered Save America to ask for $60 million in refunds from cash transfers to his other PACs, with only $42.5 million returned from MAGA Inc so far. Trump is diverting 10% of all campaign donations to Save America, ensuring 10% of every dollar raised goes to his defense team.
