The former president was subjected Thursday to the taking of a “mugshot” in an Atlanta prison after being charged with attempting to manipulate the 2020 presidential election. Released thanks to the payment of a bond of 200,000 dollars, the favorite of the Republican primaries for the presidential election of 2024 quickly made this shot a object of political communication.

“Have you seen Donald Trump’s mugshot? », asks a journalist. A question that arouses the laughter of the president. “I saw it, yes, on television”he replies more seriously, as boos at him can be heard. “What did you think of it?” », restart the reporter. “Handsome Guy, Wonderful Guy”he then quips, in a response that could be translated as “Handsome guy, great guy. »

For the elected Republican of Georgia in the House of Representatives Marjorie Taylor Greene, follower of conspiracy theories and of the extreme right, this photo “ is the one who will win the presidential election of 2024”.
“See you on January 20, 2025”, date of the taking office of the next president of the United States, tweeted Donald Jr, son of the former head of state. For this, Donald Trump will have to win the Republican primaries, which begin on January 15.
