Donald Trump is wasting no time getting back on the campaign trail now that the verdict has been handed down and his historic criminal trial in New York City is over.

The former president and presumptive Republican presidential nominee headlined a fundraiser just hours after his conviction. He will attend a UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) match in Newark, New Jersey on Saturday, Fox News confirmed. And on Sunday he will be present for an interview with Fox and Friends.

“We will fight hard,” Trump told Fox News' Brooke Singman in an interview shortly after he was found guilty of all 34 felonies in his case, the first in which a former or current president has gone on trial.

Trump emphasized that he was excited to get back on the campaign trail.

Addressing reporters Friday from the atrium of his Trump Tower in New York City, where he launched his first bid for the White House nine years ago, the former president vowed that “we're going to fight.”

For six weeks, Trump was confined to a lower Manhattan courtroom, preventing him from campaigning across the country except on weekends and Wednesdays, when there was no trial.

But Trump's campaign touted that even during the duration of the trial, the candidate was able to generate “billions of dollars” in media attention and organize rallies and fundraisers.

HOW TRUMP'S GUILTY EXCLUSIONS COULD AFFECT THE 2024 REMATCH WITH BIDEN

The former president's tenure on the court also did not appear to make a dent in the slight lead he enjoys in the polls over President Biden in the key battleground states that will likely determine the outcome of their rematch.

And the former president's top pollsters released a memo on the eve of the verdict arguing that a conviction would have no electoral consequences.

“We're back to the mission already,” the Trump campaign told Fox News Digital on Thursday evening. “President Trump will not allow this sham to stop this campaign's movement to save the nation.”

Trump enjoyed an initial burst of fundraising thanks to his guilty verdicts.

The former president's campaign announced Friday morning that it had raised $34.8 million in fundraising between 6 p.m. ET and midnight Thursday, immediately after the verdict went viral.

On Friday evening, the campaign updated its fundraising total: nearly $53 million in 24 hours.

WHAT TRUMP TOLD FOX NEWS DIGITAL AFTER THE VERDICT

The campaign highlighted in a press release that they “shattered a record for a small fundraiser” and said it was “nearly double the largest day ever recorded for the Trump campaign on the WinRed platform.” MAGA movement like never before.”

Trump will continue his fundraising blitz with a swing in California late next week.

The former president will head to San Francisco's Blue Bastion on June 6 for a fundraising dinner hosted by tech investors David Sacks and Chamath Palihapitiya, two of Silicon Valley's heaviest hitters and co-hosts of the popular “All-In” podcast .

The trip doesn't mean the Trump campaign thinks overwhelmingly blue California plays a role.

Instead, Trump's swing and two Bay Area fundraisers on June 5, led by Vice President Kamala Harris, are the latest evidence that the Golden State remains a crucial money machine for campaign cash.
