After having his mugshot taken for his fourth questionable indictment, President Donald Trump began selling merchandise featuring the famous photo, and fundraising sales have spiked.

According to Fox News, President Trump has raised $9.4 million since having his mugshot taken last week alone. 

A large portion of these funds were raised through mugshot merchandise. 36,000 t-shirts, 24,000 mugs, and 8,600 posters have been sold. In total, this has raised nearly $3 million for the Trump campaign.

The timing of the charges brought against President Trump and the basis for them has continuously been decried by supporters as “election interference.” 

President Trump himself agrees that the situation is concerning. On Monday, he posted to social media calling Joe Biden “the worst and most corrupt President in the history of the United States.” 

He also maintains that these criminal cases are “all for the sake of Election Interference.”

America First supporters agree as they offer their support by purchasing President Trump’s mugshot gear on his website, which states, “Never surrender,” beneath his mugshot. 

The “Never Surrender” slogan took off after President Trump posted to X for the first time since it rebranded from Twitter, where he was banned in 2021.
