Trump rails against ‘terrible experience’ in jail where he was ‘treated very nicely’

donald trump has shared his “horrible experience” despite being “treated very well” in the Fulton County Jail Atlanta after booking and release from there.

The former president turned himself in to authorities Thursday on 13 charges of attempting to overthrow the 2020 Georgia presidential election, telling a news anchor that he was “treated very well” in prison.

In conversation with news max, Mr Trump was asked about his experience. “I came in. I was treated very nicely. It is what it is. I took one mugshot. I’ve never heard the word mugshot and I have to go through a process,” he said, adding that it was a “horrific experience.”

His booking slip included his mug shot, his height and weight – 6ft 3in and 215 pounds (97.5 kg).

He is the first and only former US President to ever take a mug shot.

The mug shot was prominently displayed on Mr Trump’s fundraising platform and also appeared on his X-Feed, the former Twitter feed. This was Mr Trump’s first post since his ban from the platform in 2021.
