Earlier President Trump
Insider reported for the first time on the cards Wednesday, noting that Trump’s Save America PAC sent two emails about the red-and-gold cards, with the first message: “The card you choose will be carried by patriots across the country.”

“They will be a sign of your committed support for our movement to SAVE AMERICA, and I place my complete trust in you,” the email added.
The second email stated that the “official trump cards” would be “reserved for President Trump’s STRONGEST supporters.”
“We recently met the president in his Florida office and showed him four designs,” the email added. “Originally, we planned to release just one draft, but when President Trump saw the cards on his desk, he said, ‘These are BEAUTIFUL. We have to let the American people decide – they ALWAYS know best!’”
The four designs include one with a golden sea eagle, another with the US seal and a third with an American flag waving in the background.
The fourth option has a solid red background and, like two of the other designs, reads “Official Trump Card.”
However, the option with the flag has a spelling error and reads: “Trump Official Card”.
Each of the designs features Trump’s signature, along with the logo for the Save America PAC and areas for the supporter’s name and ID number.
It wasn’t immediately clear when the cards would be issued, though it appears to be just one of the team’s latest fundraising tactics months after Trump left the Oval Office.
Late last month, the Trump PAC announced in an email that it was selling autographed photos of Trump for $45 each.
The Hill has reached out to Trump’s team for comment.
Several critics of the ex-president, including anti-Trump GOP group The Lincoln Project, took to social media to poke fun at the cards, pointing out the misspelling.

Others criticized the cards, with many arguing that the bald eagle design resembled the Nazi Eagle symbol first developed in the 1920s in Germany.

However, others, including attorney Jenna Ellis, who was previously a member of Trump’s legal team to reverse the results of the 2020 election, tweeted that the requirements to show a vaccination certificate at some businesses and restaurants were “1000% worse.”
To all leftists triggered by the Trump Card:
Imagine having to wear and show one to enter and fly into businesses and restaurants.
Vaccine passports are 1000% worse.
