Trump Campaign Spent $4 Million on Legal Fees in April: Filings

The Trump campaign spent another $4 million on legal bills in April, bringing the 2024 total north of $20 million.

On May 20, three committees associated with former President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign published monthly disclosure statements with the Federal Election Commission (FEC). Those committees paid about $4 million in April alone.

All told, three committees—President Trump’s principal campaign committee, Donald J. Trump For President 2024 Inc., his qualified leadership political action committee Save America, and the super PAC Make America Great Again Inc.—paid bills in April.

President Trump is currently on trial at the Manhattan Criminal Court in New York. The case, centered around alleged so-called hush money payments, dominated the political headlines since it began in April. The trial will likely conclude by the end of May.

Nevertheless, the New York trial is just one of a glut of cases facing the Republican Party’s presumed presidential nominee. In 2024, the former president already faced a ruling against him in a federal defamation trial and a New York business practices trial.

President Trump often says the charges against him are politically motivated.
