Donald Trump Surrenders at Fulton County Jail in Georgia Election Interference Case

Former President Donald Trump surrendered Thursday at the Fulton County jail, where he was booked on 13 felony counts related to an alleged scheme to overturn the results of the presidential election in Georgia.

His surrender in Georgia marks the fourth time this year the former president has turned himself in after criminal charges were brought against him by federal and state officials, but it’s the first time he was subjected to a mug shot. It’s also routine for defendants in Fulton County to be fingerprinted and have their eyes scanned for biometric identification.

Within an hour after he boarded his plane to leave Atlanta, Trump’s Save America PAC sent a fundraising email featuring his booking photo on a t-shirt. Trump also posted the mug shot to his X account, formerly known as Twitter, as well as to Truth Social, both posts with the words “election interference” and “never surrender.” It marked Trump’s first tweet since Jan. 8, 2021, two days after the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol.
