Trump Store: 10 things you can buy from Donald Trump’s online store, from Trump Cards to Trump Tower baubles
The release of Trump’s exclusive line of Non Fungible Tokens has led one reporter to take a look at what else can be bought from the official store of Donald Trump
In the latest “how will he make his money next” news, fans of the former President of the United States of America can now collect digital trading cards featuring Donald Trump. The non fungible tokens will see the former POTUS in an array of scenarios including being a NASCAR driver, a superhero and a border patrol security guard.
As the world’s media watched Truth Social, the social media platform Trump has used since being banned and finally rejecting a return to Twitter, the major announcement that was teased by the former POTUS turned out to be the release of his line of NFTs. Not, as many were predicting, an announcement of his running mate in the next US Presidential election.
The announcement was made alongside the release of a video, depicting an animated version of Donald Trump in front of the Trump Tower in New York, who rips open his shirt to reveal a superhero costume emblazoned with the letter T as lasers shoot from his eyes.
Trump took to Truth Social to say that the NFTs were “very much like a baseball card, but hopefully much more exciting” and that £81 each, "would make a great Christmas gift". Buyers will also be entered into a sweepstake, with the chance of winning prizes including a gala dinner or a game of golf with Mr Trump.
The announcement and release of the Trump NFTs have been roundly mocked by politicians and even some former Trump aides. Steve Bannon, one of the masterminds behind Trump’s successful presidential campaign, thought the move was a step too far. "I can’t do this anymore," he said on his podcast and anyone involved in the project "ought to be fired today," he added.
Trump lending his name to merchandising is nothing new however; many may recall during his heyday as presenter of The Apprentice that the former president started releasing a line of steaks bearing his name and quality assurance. Those steaks were available exclusively through US retailer The Sharper Image - known more for selling gadgets than quality cuts of meat.
Interestingly though, for those who are stuck for a last minute present this Christmas, Trump has his own official online store, which includes seasonal items at “affordable” prices. Just what might make it into someone’s MAGA adorned stocking? Take a look at some of the items below.
