There is a ZERO PERCENT chance that the MAGA crowd who might buy Trump NFTs actually understand what NFTs are. There’s going to be a lot of angry people tweeting when they don’t get a pack of cards and a stick of gum in the mail. ? #MajorAnnouncement

“Big announcement,” Trump wrote. “My official Donald Trump Digital Trading Card Collection is here! These limited edition cards feature the amazing ART of my life [and] career. Collect all your favorite Trump Digital Trading Cards, very much like a baseball card, but hopefully a lot more exciting,” said the former 45th President of the United States. “Get your cards now. Only $99 each. Would make a great Christmas gift. Don’t wait. They will disappear, I think, very quickly,” Trump added.
According to the site, by purchasing Trump’s NFT card, buyers are automatically entered into a contest that showcases various prizes. For example, a winner can “spend a memorable evening in Miami for an exclusive dinner hosted by Trump,” they can “enjoy an unforgettable private meeting with Donald Trump at Mar-A-Lago,” or “join Donald on the green for an exclusive 1 hour of golf.” However, the site also states that no purchase is necessary to enter the competition. Trump’s NFT fundraising announcement angered many cryptocurrency followers, as a large number of people commented on Trump’s latest venture via social media.

Scott Melker, otherwise known as “The Wolf Of All Streets”. so: “I have so many questions and comments, but really just in disbelief and confusion and hoping it all clears up afterwards so we can start over.” Digital currency advocate Eric Wall also reacted to the former president’s NFT collection. “Wait a minute,” Wall tweeted. “These NFTs give you access to a community. A dinner with Trump. Golf with Trump. Zoom calls. One-on-one meetings. Autographs. This is not a baseball card. This is a SimpDAO.”
Trump’s website also says the cards are only “intended as collectibles for individual enjoyment only, not for investment vehicles.” Furthermore, anyone who purchases 45 Trump NFT cards is “guaranteed” a ticket to attend a “Gala Dinner” with Trump in South Florida, and that person will receive 45 entries into the contest.
