(ILLUSTRATION) This photo illustration created in Washington, DC, on August 27, 2023, shows the mugshot of former US President Donald Trump next to a website called Trump Save America JFC, a joint fundraising committee on behalf of Donald J. Trump for President 2024, which is selling merchandise bearing his mugshot. For most people, a police mug shot would be a badge of dishonor they would do anything to erase.

T-shirts, mugs, stickers and beverage coolers bearing the first mug shot of a serving or former US president were put out by his team within hours of the photo's release.
