Trump posts on X, formerly Twitter, for first time since 2021

TRT World August 24, 2023

Former US president Donald Trump posted his mugshot on X with the phrases “ELECTION INTERFERENCE” and “NEVER SURRENDER” below it.

The then-Twitter permanently suspended Trump after the January 6 riot, ruling he had violated the platform’s policy on glorifying violence as he pressed his claims that the election was stolen from him.

Elon Musk, who bought the platform last year, reinstated the former president in November 2022, but Trump stayed away, choosing to reach his followers on his own platform, Truth Social, albeit with a much smaller audience.

His Thursday post features the mugshot – Trump scowling at the camera as he posed in Fulton County jail – and has a link to his 2024 presidential campaign.

Above the photo are the words “MUG SHOT — AUGUST 24, 2023.” Below it are the phrases “ELECTION INTERFERENCE” and “NEVER SURRENDER.”
