Trump's booking photo was taken Thursday as he surrendered inside a jail in Atlanta on charges that he illegally schemed to overturn the 2020 election in Georgia.
He was released on $200,000 bond and headed back to the airport for his return flight home to New Jersey, flashing a thumbs-up through the window of his sport utility vehicle as his motorcade left.
Within minutes of the mug shot's release, Trump's campaign was already using the image to solicit contributions on a fundraising site.
"This mugshot will forever go down in history as a symbol of America's defiance of tyranny," said a Trump campaign fundraising email. His website also features the mugshot on its homepage.
A link to official campaign merchandise shows the image on long and short sleeve shirts, mugs, and bumper stickers.
