Con Artist Donald Trump Is Back With Yet Another Scam

As Donald Trump dines with the people he scammed with his NFT collection, DNC Rapid Response Director Alex Floyd released the following statement: 

“Donald Trump is nothing but a con artist who has ripped off the American people time and time again, and this election is no different: Trump has hawked bootleg sneakers, peddled his own Bible, and pushed NFTs. As Trump continues to back a laughably out-of-touch MAGAnomics agenda that puts his ultra-wealthy friends ahead of hardworking families, Americans aren’t falling for the con job. Voters see right through Trump’s never-ending grifting and will reject his extreme and unpopular brand at the ballot box in November.”

Donald Trump is absent from the campaign trail today as he dines with his NFT buyers, the latest of Trump’s many scams.

Axios: “This evening [Trump is] expected to join supporters who bought at least 47 Trump NFTs (at $99 each), according to copy of the dinner invitation reviewed by Axios. … The NFTs are among an array of items Trump has hawked this campaign cycle. He’s also promoted $59.99 Bibles, $399 ‘Never Surrender’ sneakers and $99 ‘Victory47’ cologne.”
