Donald Trump wants his supporters to carry “Trump Cards.”
Trump’s PAC sent two emails on Wednesday asking supporters to get on board with carrying the red-and-gold cards, which look like credit cards and bear the former president’s signature.
“The card you select will be carried by Patriots all around the Country,” the first email said. “They will be a sign of your dedicated support to our movement to SAVE AMERICA, and I’m putting my full trust in you.”
The Trump team said in a follow-up email, “We’re about to launch our Official Trump Cards, which will be reserved for President Trump’s STRONGEST supporters.”
“We recently met with the President in his Florida office and showed him four designs,” the email continued. “Originally we were planning on releasing just one design, but when President Trump saw the cards on his desk, he said, ‘These are BEAUTIFUL. We should let the American People decide – they ALWAYS know best!'”
The emails did not outline exactly what entitled one to carry a “Trump Card.” Clicking on the link to vote for a design led to a fundraising page.
The Trump team did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Insider.
The “Trump Card” is the group’s latest fundraising merchandise. In an email on July 26, it announced it was selling signed photos of Trump for $US45 ($AU61).
“Now, whether he has managed to successfully convince himself or whether from the get-go he was so focused on hearing what he wanted to hear, he is absolutely certain,” Wolff said. “Absolutely certain that he won the election and that if he did not win it, it could only be that it was stolen from him.”
