Donald Trump’s Mug Shot Released Following Arrest

Former President Donald Trump’s mug shot was publicly released after his arrest in an Atlanta jail on suspicion of plotting to manipulate the 2020 Georgia presidential election. This marks the first time a sitting or past US president has had a criminal mug shot. The mugshot of 77-year-old Donald Trump, inmate number P01135809 in Fulton County Jail files, shows him severely and unsmiling. He avoided mugshots in previous trials, making this moment extraordinary.

Charged with 13 counts, including racketeering, often used in organized crime cases, Trump allegedly influenced state officials to overturn his election loss and set up an illegitimate slate of electors against Joe Biden’s victory.

Undeterred, Trump shared the mug shot on his Truth Social platform, captioned “Election Interference,” with a link to his campaign site. He also tweeted “ELECTION INTERFERENCE! NEVER SURRENDER!” on his blocked Twitter account. Trump’s arrest deepens ongoing political drama, following his refusal to join a televised debate involving rival Republicans for the 2024 presidency. His mug shot and charges dominate headlines amidst court appearances and a potential White House run.

Throughout his career, Trump evoked strong feelings, and this arrest encapsulates the historical moment. It highlights the gravity of allegations against the former US president.
