They say an image is worth a thousand words. For former President Donald Trump, his image is worth millions of dollars.
After being unceremoniously processed due to a criminal indictment earlier this year, Trump used his mug shot to his advantage. He plastered the booking photo on merchandise such as T-shirts, coffee mugs, and posters to turn a profit. Reports show Trump made more than $9.4 million in less than a week in August and has continued profiting ever since.
Trump is a festive kind of guy and now he is getting into the holiday spirit with a new product. This one really puts a bow on his merchandising efforts and shows the world how he feels about his detractors.
According to the Washington Examiner, former President Donald Trump’s campaign has unveiled new Christmas wrapping paper that proudly displays his mug shot from earlier this year.
Trump’s team revealed the wrapping paper on Sunday, and it is available for $35 on his campaign merchandise website. Trump even added another wrapping paper design that features him wearing a Christmas hat with his campaign slogan, “Make America Great Again” printed on a green background.
The holiday merchandising offer seems to be a big hit. As of this writing the mug shot wrapping paper didn’t appear available on the merchandise site. Clicking the icon for the product sends shoppers to the Christmas hat wrapping paper sales page.
There may still be a way to get the mug shot wrapping paper. The product was initially available to anyone donating $47 to the Trump campaign as he pursues the 2024 presidential election to become the 47th president of the United States.
Trump doesn’t have the 2024 Republican Party nomination wrapped up just yet, but he is leading the GOP field by leaps and bounds. Joe Biden may need an early Christmas miracle next year as Trump has gained ground on the incumbent.
Polling data for the 2024 presidential election released Wednesday showed Trump garnering 47% support among voters. Biden fell behind at 43% support while 10% were undecided, according to Emerson College Polling.
That’s a nice stocking stuffer statistic for Trump that goes well with his “Never Surrender” Christmas stocking with his mug shot printed on it in full color.
- Trump kicks off holiday season with special merchandise promo.
- His choice of photos rings in a loud and clear message for detractors.
- Trump’s holiday gift to Biden was a flip in standing with voters.
