Former US President Donald Trump is now selling digital trading cards with photos of himself for a whopping $99 each. “These limited-edition cards feature incredible artwork from my life and career,” the 76-year-old Republican wrote on his Truth Social online platform Thursday. The cards could be collected “like baseball cards, but hopefully much more exciting”.

In a video on the website selling the digital tickets, Trump shows footage of himself in a boxing ring as a muscular cartoon superhero with a “T” on his chest, in front of the Statue of Liberty holding a torch, on a white horse with American Flag or show in an astronaut suit. “Don’t forget: Christmas is coming and it makes a great Christmas present,” says the real estate entrepreneur, who hopes to take over the White House in the 2024 presidential election.

Ticket buyers can win dinner or a round of golf with Trump

According to Trump, buyers of the tickets, which cost the equivalent of 93 euros, also participate in raffles. You could win a dinner with the ex-president, a conversation via Zoom, a round of golf at one of his courses, or autographed souvenirs. Shoppers should grab tickets quickly — “before they’re gone,” Trump recommends.

On Wednesday, the right-wing populist promised an “important announcement” on Truth Social for the following day, along with the cryptic phrase “America needs a superhero.” Apparently the ad meant the trading cards.

Many Republicans want to close the Trump chapter

Trump had announced a new presidential candidacy in November. However, its application is currently developing little momentum. Many Republicans blame the ex-president for the party’s poor performance in the November 8 midterm elections and would like to close the Trump chapter once and for all.

In a new poll, Trump is far behind his party rival Ron DeSantis, who was triumphantly re-elected as Florida’s midterm governor. US justice is also under investigation against Trump due to the storming of the Capitol on January 6, 2021 and secret documents he took from the White House to his private Mar-a-Lago estate. in Florida after his term ended. .
