Former US President Donald Trump has just made history as the country’s first ex-leader to pose for a mugshot.
The news sent fans and critics into a frenzy after Trump opted to tweet the image himself online. And as you can imagine, this is the first time that he’s tweeted anything through the X platform since his ban that arose on January 6.
The 77-year-old was recently arrested for the fourth time in the year 2023 and he was similarly fingerprinted by officials at the Atlanta Jail during the later hours of Thursday. But right after that, he made it a point to share his mugshot which did not take long to go viral online.
It’s interesting to note how he never had any type of booking photo taken during the event of his arrest in the past that arose in the cities of Washington DC, New York City, and even Miami.
The former American President’s personal details were also a part of the classic mugshot where his height was delineated to be 6 feet and 3 inches while his weight was 215 pounds. These were all pre-recorded, sources have gone on to reveal and happen to be a part of the normal process for all criminals.
Similarly, the country’s ex-commander-in-chief was even provided with a prisoner ID number. But after a short while, he was released from jail after paying 10% of his $200k bail. So that means he only spent a mere 20 minutes inside the very infamous and notorious facility.
Trump reportedly traveled to Georgia on Thursday during the afternoon hours from his residence at Bedminster in New Jersey. As expected, his arrival came with an entire motorcade and heavy-duty security escorting him to the venue where hundreds of press and media officials waited to get a glimpse of the former American president.
He first arrived at Newark Airport, followed by a flight to Atlanta in his Boeing 757.
