The former president announced on Tuesday, April 18 that he was selling another batch of the NFT trading cards he issued in December.

“I am pleased to inform you that due to the great success of my previously launched DIGITAL TRADING CARDS, we are doing it again, SERIES 2, AVAILABLE RIGHT NOW,” Trump wrote on his social media platform, Truth Social.

The second series of cards consists of eight different NFTS, all priced at $99. But on Twitter, people mocked the new illustrations.

A super PAC supporting the Florida governor released a TV ad accusing Trump of “stealing pages from the Biden-Pelosi playbook.”

Trump hit back at Truth Social on Monday, blasting that “Ron DeSanctus” was spreading “Democratic disinformation!”

Donald Trump revealed his thoughts on Twitter CEO Elon Musk on Tuesday as the former president sees his own platform for conservatives, Truth Social, face financial struggles.

Former President Donald Trump seems quite unhappy with SpaceX founder Elon Musk’s declaration that he voted for President Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential election.

Musk admitted to voting for the 46th president over the 45th during a recent interview with Fox News host Tucker Carlson.

“I don’t think Elon Musk voted for Biden, not for a second! He told me he voted for me, but who knows and who cares? Elon is just trying to make friends with the absolutely terrible Biden administration because of all the government subsidies he gets and all the permits he needs. His space company, car company, battery company, tunnel company, and even Twitter, which was illegally controlled by the FBI, need government HELP AND SUBSIDIES. HE’S JUST “REPSER FENCES!”

Nonprofits are seeking to disqualify Trump from the 2024 ballot after the Jan. 6 uprising

Two nonprofits — including the group that challenged several GOP House members’ eligibility to serve because of their support for the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol — want to use the same provision of the U.S. Constitution to keep Donald Trump off the ballot next year .

Trump’s support for the attack, the groups say, would fall under Section 3 of the 14th Amendment to the US Constitution, which prohibits any “officer of the United States” who has “engaged in rebellion or sedition against” the country – after previously taking an oath to support the Constitution – from serving in any federal office.

It’s a long-shot bid from the groups, but explains the kind of opposition Trump will face from even centrist organizations heading into 2024, thanks to the chaos that was 2020 and early 2021.

These plots included increasing the park’s taxes, building a prison next door, or selling the land surrounding Disney to another theme park. The governor also highlighted proposed legislation that would impose new inspection regulations on Disney.
