Former President Donald Trump announced Thursday he would be selling NFT cards, prompting a slew of mixed reactions.

Trump teased a “major announcement” Wednesday on TruthSocial, posting a video of himself dressed up as a superhero.

“AMERICA NEEDS A SUPERHERO! I will be making a MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT tomorrow,” Trump’s initial post announced.

While some speculated Trump would be announcing a return to Twitter or something in relation to his presidential campaign, Trump instead announced the release of digital trading cards.

“These limited edition cards feature amazing ART of my Life & Career!” Trump wrote on Truth Social. The cards are selling for $99 each.

Users were quick to react to the news.

Radio host Tim Young said, “grifting on NFTs won’t win elections.”

Contributor at Red State Jeff Charles questioned why Trump chose this to be his “major announcement.”

“This … this … was the ‘major announcement’ he was supposed to give? ………….why tho???”

Investigative reporter at the Free Beacon and former Daily Caller News Foundation reporter Andrew Kerr questioned some of the logistics of the cards.

“Really like a particular Trump Digital Trading Card? Well, too bad. Fork over $99 and you get a random .jpg in return. No way to select which not you buy.”

Conservative commentators known as the Hodge twins called for someone to be held accountable. (RELATED: ‘America Needs A Superhero’: Trump Teases Mysterious ‘Major Announcement’ For Thursday)

“Whoever told trump to do this should be fired.”

Others seemed happy about the announcement, with Foundation for Liberty & American Greatness President Nick Adams saying he’d be splurging on the cards.

“Yes, I am purchasing the entire collection of President Trump’s digital trading cards. No, I will not apologize for it.”
