Donald Trump is selling cut up pieces of the suit he wore in mugshot when he was arrested for nearly $5,000.

The former president has released a series of digital trading cards priced at $99 each and anyone who buys all 47 will receive a physical card containing a piece of the “priceless” navy suit and be invited to a gala dinner at Mar-a-Lago.

Mr Trump became the first president to have their mugshot taken when he was arrested in Fulton County, Georgia, in August this year on charges of electoral interference.

An advertisement declares the suit to be “the most historical significant artefact in United States history”.

“It was a great suit, believe me, a really good suit. It’s all cut up and you’re going to get a piece of it,” Mr Trump says in an advertisement video.

The virtual trading cards, known as non-fungible tokens (NFTs), variously depict the former president as a cyborg, in a cowboy hat and sitting on his own version of the Lincoln Memorial.

In one he is depicted carrying a flag that reads “never surrender” as he rides a galloping horse with eagles flying around him, while another shows a slim Mr Trump walking through Washington with lightning coming out of his hands as fighter jets fly above him.

“I wish I looked as good as I do on those cards, that I can tell you,” the former president says in the video.

“They give me muscles where, believe me, I don’t have them.”

Mr Trump has previously released two other batches of NFTs to his supporters.

He branded his August arrest a “very sad day for America” in its immediate aftermath but is now capitalising on the mugshot’s popularity among his fans.

“The people that are buying these Trump digital trading cards are new friends of mine, more than anything else,” he is quoted as saying on the NFT website.
