Donald Trump boasts that his mugshot will become ‘the most famous in the history of the world’ and plans to use it to raise millions for his presidential campaign, friend claims
- Trump ally says he will use mugshot merch to fund next presidential campaign
- Trump reportedly has more than $100 million ready to finance his 2024 bid
Donald Trump believes that his mugshot will become ‘the most famous one in the history of the world,’ and plans to use it to raise millions for his presidential campaign, a friend claimed last night.
The mugshot will be plastered on coffee mugs, tea towels, posters, T-shirts and flags.
Toni Holt Kramer, a friend of Trump’s for more than a decade and head of the Trumpettes support group, told the MoS: ‘President Trump and his supporters know the mugshot sums up the witch-hunt against Mr Trump and is emblematic of everything that is wrong with the banana republic that [President] Biden’s America has become.’

They continued: ‘President Trump knows his mugshot will become the most famous mugshot ever in the history of the world.
‘It’s something that will become symbolic of the Left’s attack on Trump and any attempt to use it to humiliate him will backfire spectacularly.
‘Everyone is going to want it. Even his detractors.’
After news of his impending indictment broke last Thursday, money began flooding into Trump’s re-election coffers.
A source close to the ex-President said that $4 million (£3.2 million) had ‘poured in’ from ‘every state in America’.
Trump already has a war chest of more than $100 million (£81 million) to finance his 2024 bid for the White House.
A source said: ‘By Friday night there had been more than $4 million in donations and it was looking like we’d raise $5 million by the end of this weekend.
‘Donations are pouring in from every state in America.’
The source continued: ‘Plans are in place to offer items printed with the mugshot on Trump’s official website.
‘We are hoping to have the items for sale within 48 hours of his arraignment.’
Referring to actor Hugh Grant’s infamous 1995 mugshot, taken shortly after he was arrested for ‘lewd conduct’ with prostitute Divine Brown, the source said: ‘Hugh Grant’s mugshot became iconic but you ain’t seen nothing yet.
‘Once the presidential campaign kicks into gear you’ll be seeing Trump’s mugshot everywhere.’
