The arrest photograph of former U.S. President Donald Trump has generated substantial profits, as it was reproduced on various items and sold as part of a fundraising initiative.
This police snapshot of Mr. Trump at the moment of his arrest, commonly referred to as a mugshot, was featured on T-shirts, coffee cups, and bumper stickers, all part of the “Free Trump” collection established to raise funds for his legal expenses and presidential campaign.
To date, the campaign has amassed over $11 million, with a remarkable $6.4 million collected in just one day.
Mr. Trump recently achieved a historical milestone by being formally charged four times for his alleged role in attempting to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election. Consequently, he now holds the distinction of being the very first U.S. president, whether current or former, to possess an arrest photograph.
This photograph of Mr. Trump, captured with a scowling expression as he faced the camera, quickly gained widespread attention after its online posting.
