Former President Donald Trump made his return well-known when he posted on Instagram Monday, marking the first time he has put up content on the social media giant since Jan. 5, 2021, just before the protests that took place at the U.S. Capitol.
The content of Trump’s post? It advertised his NFTs, short for non-fungible tokens.
“I am pleased to inform you that, due to the great success of my previously launched DIGITAL TRADING CARDS, we are doing it again, SERIES 2, AVAILABLE RIGHT NOW,” Trump wrote online, along with instructions on how to purchase the collectibles.
NFTs that can be acquired feature Trump in a variety of styles, including a guitarist biker wearing American flag pants, the former president sporting an army uniform, Trump as King on a deck of cards, a rockstar Trump, a patriotic father-like Trump grilling alongside his dog, a golden bust of Trump wearing a crown, and more.
In another recent post, the former president posted a video reel to Instagram that simply showed him looking at the camera and asking, “where’s Hunter?” The clip followed with a Trump 2024 banner urging viewers to text “TRUMP” to a campaign number.
I’m losing my mind at this. Trump just posted a reel to Instagram of him looking at the camera saying “where’s Hunter?” And that’s it. I’m laughing. pic.twitter.com/GqHqxhhsZY

According to Trump, after the first round of Trump NFTs were put out for the public, “We almost broke the internet.”
The Trump NFTs reportedly cost $99 each, just as they did in the first release.
Trump claims these tokens are a massively great deal.
“I hope everyone notices, & I’m sure the Fake News won’t, that I’m leaving the price of the Trading Cards the same as last time, even though they are selling for MANY TIMES MORE (It’s called the MARKET!), & sold out almost immediately, because I want my fans & supporters to make money, & have fun doing it,” Trump wrote in the description of a post that showed him wearing a Superman-like costume.
“I could have raised the price MUCH HIGHER, & I believe it still would have sold well, with a lot more money coming to me, but I didn’t choose to do so. I WILL BE GIVEN NO ‘NICE GUY’ CREDIT?”
Trump reportedly posted to Facebook as well, notably making zero updates on Twitter despite now being allowed back on the platform.
