Trump Sells a New Image as the Hero of $99 Trading Cards

Money from the digital cards will instead be pocketed by Mr. Trump under a licensing deal, a fact that some of his aides acknowledged and expressed concern about. They worry that the move could dilute small-dollar donations to his presidential effort.

Trump’s decision to announce his candidacy so early - two years out - puts his campaign in a tough position of having to rely exclusively on “hard dollars” (max $2,900 per donor). It’s surprising they’re not using the NFTs to generate revenue for the campaign.
