According to a fundraising email, Donald Trump, the republican presidential candidate claimed to have been tortured during his time at the county jail in Georgia. Donald Trump’s campaign team sent an email criticizing how the former president was treated during photographs of his mug shot at the jail.

Trump has always had the idea of generating campaign donations with a picture of his mugshot. On Monday, June 24, 2025, an email was sent in which torture claims were issued. The message was sent as a promotional letter for the sale of Trump coffee mug shot cups.

In August 2023, Trump turned himself in at the Fulton County Jail following his criminal case request in Georgia. Trump is being charged with 13 counts of election fraud, which came from his efforts to overturn the 2020 election result.

When Trump arrived at the county jail, he did so in with a convoy rivaling a president. After his arrival, Trump was booked and had his fingerprint taken. Subsequently, Trump was taken for his now infamous mug shot.

In the wake of his criminal charges, Trump has capitalized on them, using them as a business avenue to generate income. Trump has issued merchandise for his mug shots, ranging from T-shirts, mugs and koozies to bumper stickers. The stickers are noted to sometimes include the phrase “Never surrender.”
