Donald Trump’s recently released NFT collection appears to be made up of edited images from various startups. The pictures on the digital cards are similar to those found on Walmart and Amazon.com.
In his recently announced digital trading cards, the former US president is suspected of having used photos that are copyrighted. Findings suggest that the NFTs could lead him to legal jeopardy because multiple individuals may claim infringement on the original designs.
Trump’s “big announcement” last week, which turned out to be the introduction of a set of digital trading cards, was mocked by several social media users.
The former president bizarrely created unpleasant characters in the NFTs, along with an astronaut, a superhero, and a cowboy. He is also running for re-election to the presidency in 2024.
Donald has a 45,000-image NFT collection. Each sold for $99. However, if he continues to be flaunted by attentive Twitter users and others, he might end up being a dead bag.
Among the criminal charges against the former President arises from his controversial inquiries about the 2020 US Presidential Elections results.
Social Media Pages’ Responses on Donald Trump’s NFT Collection
The Young Turks reporter Mathew Sheffield thinks Mr Trump’s cowboy NFT appeared to be a doctored image from Amazon offering an actual men’s Duster jacket. He highlighted how the NFT collection seems to be a series of images that have been slightly manipulated.
It appears that Donald Trump's NFT image of himself as a cowboy comes from an Amazon image that was slightly altered. https://t.co/B0b2SUSbX9 pic.twitter.com/OA8L2rHw4J

One more Twitter user, SkeeterBombay, questioned whether Donald’s golf NFT had obtained permission from Reuters since the picture was captured as the former President was playing golf.
That's hilarious, thanks. If you can make a link to the source somewhere in a new tweet with this pics, I will retweet it. Just want to make it easy for people to see all the info at once.

It is claimed that a different prototype, in which Trump is shown as a fighter pilot, was based on a Shutterstock image. A cryptocurrency account called WhaleChart focused on what appeared to be a graphic which remained on the clothing.

Another virtual trading card that was allegedly stolen from NASA displays a picture of Trump as an astronaut.
Additionally, RadarOnline.com reported on Trump’s practice of collecting additional photos that had been altered for use in his new collections. One NFT, in particular, showed Trump clutching a shotgun while dressed in full hunting gear, and it was linked to a pair of Branded waders.
