Former U.S. President Donald Trump launches 'MugShot' themed NFT drop
Former 45th U.S. President Donald Trump is launching a third nonfungible tokens (NFT) drop center around the theme of his ongoing criminal indictments.
According to the December 12 announcement, dubbed “MugShot,” the trading cards are purchasable via either credit card or Wrapped Ether (wETH) and are not transferrable until December 31, 2024. Users will need to provide know-your-customer (KYC) information to purchase the NFTs, even if they choose to pay with crypto. In explaining the rationale behind the collection, developers wrote:
Priced at $99 each, users who purchase 47 or more digital trading cards are eligible to receive “a piece of the president’s ACTUAL suit from his famous mugshot & dinner at Mar-a-Lago with the [former] President.” This is Trump’s third NFT drop following previous successes. Melania Trump, former First Lady of the United States and wife of Donald Trump has also previously launched an NFT collection.
The Former 45th U.S. President is currently seeking a non-consecutive second presidential term in the 2024 U.S. presidential election. Starting this year, Trump has been indicted by both state and federal authorities on allegations of business fraud and efforts to overturn the 2020 U.S. President Election, totaling 91 felony charges. However, the U.S. Constitution has no clauses automatically disqualifying suspects or convicted criminals from running for federal office. The 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which bars convicted insurrectionists from holding public office, requires Congressional action to be enforced.
