In the newest trend of things Donald Trump encourages, the ex-president of the United States has now asked his supporters to carry Trump cards with his signature on them so that they are “dedicated to our movement to save America.”
And yes, he’s serious.
The former President’s camp launched 4 red and gold credit card-sized designs on Wednesday with Trump’s signature on the pieces.
The cards feature a ‘Save America’ logo, include name, member ID, and member since sections, and have small print underneath Trump’s signature reading ‘authorized by President Donald J. Trump’.
Now, although not everyone will be rushing to add this to the list of cards in their wallets, his followers sure will snatch them up.
There are four fancy designs – one features a bald eagle, while on the other three ‘Official Trump Card’ takes up most of the space on the card.
“The card you select will be carried by Patriots all around the Countr,”, read the first email, seen by Business Insider.
“They will be a sign of your dedicated support to our movement to SAVE AMERICA, and I’m putting my full trust in you.”
A second was sent later on Wednesday, telling supporters: “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 4 designs. Originally we were planning on releasing just 1 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!”
Once supporters voted for their favourite design, they were taken to a fundraising page. “Wait… you’ve been selected,” the page read alongside a picture of Trump pointing past the camera.
“President Trump wants to see your name at the top of the donor list,” it added before gently asking for a contribution between $50 and $5,000.
“Donald Trump appreciates your input and now he’s calling on YOU to take the next step to SAVE AMERICA!
“For the NEXT 5 MINUTES, you can INCREASE your impact by 300 per cent.
“Please contribute ANY AMOUNT IMMEDIATELY to stand with President Trump and to claim your 300%-impact offer.”
The notion was heavily mocked on Twitter, with the odd person, of course, sticking up for Trump.
One person shared a picture of the cards saying: “Definitely not a cult.”
“These cards do not represent saving America. They only revolve around refusing to acknowledge the peace we work hard to achieve with our passion and understanding,” one person wrote.
“They are missing the Russian flag and Putin’s signature,” another mocked.
This news comes just after the Trump camp announced signed pictures will be given of the former president to people who pay $45 on July 26.
