BREAKING: Donald Trump Breaks Silence On “X” Over His Viral Mug Shot—-Former president Donald Trump has reacted to his Mug Shot taking on Thursday at Fulton County on the social media platform formerly known as Twitter.
It’s his first post on the platform, now called “X,” since Jan. 8, 2021 — and comes just after he surrendered in Georgia for his fourth criminal indictment.
Trump in the post included a link to his website and a photo of his mug shot. “Never surrender,” he wrote in the caption under the post.
TGM gathered that, Trump surrendered to Fulton County authorities about two hours earlier on Thursday on Georgia criminal charges relating to his alleged efforts to subvert 2020 election results.

Recall, the social media platform banned Trump’s account after the Jan. 6 Capitol riot in response to the “risk of further incitement of violence,” it said at the time.
Musk, who took over the platform in October 2022, reinstated Trump’s account after posting a poll and millions of accounts voted in favor of reinstating the ex-president’s account.
The platform was Trump’s primary communication tool when he was running for president and while in office — so much so that some of the posts have been the subject of his legal troubles.
