Each item displayed Trump’s mug shot alongside his historic phrase, “NEVER SURRENDER!” In addition to direct sales, the Trump Save America Joint Fundraising Committee adopted the mug shot motif as a fundraising strategy, offering a T-shirt in exchange for a $47 donation. The campaign’s email to supporters encouraged recipients to contribute $47 to demonstrate their dedication to Trump’s mission. In return, donors would receive a free T-shirt featuring an official print of Trump’s mug shot. The former president’s daughter-in-law, Lara Trump, explained how badly the left miscalculated the release of the photo on Newsmax, as reported by Red State: “I think it’s going to backfire on them, just like everything else does,” she said. “It’s going to be on posters and people’s dorm rooms. It’s going to be on T-shirts. It is going to be a flag flown by people who love this country because they’re backing Donald Trump.”
