Former President Donald Trump returned to Instagram on April 18, ending his more than two-year absence on the social media platform.

Trump, who is running for president in 2024, used his first post in 118 weeks to announce the release of a second series of his digital trading cards.

“I am pleased to inform you that, due to the great success of my previously launched DIGITAL TRADING CARDS, we are doing it again, SERIES 2, AVAILABLE RIGHT NOW,” Trump wrote on Instagram alongside an image of himself holding what appears to be the Liberty Bell.

In a short video explaining the release of a second batch, Trump said the new card series includes images of him as a rockstar and as a monster truck driver.

In a separate post, Trump posted another image of himself as a superhero wearing the U.S. flag as a cape, and with a “Trump Champion” belt. He wrote, “I hope everyone notices, & I’m sure the Fake News won’t, that I’m leaving the price of the Trading Cards the same as last time, even though they are selling for MANY TIMES MORE.

“I could have raised the price MUCH HIGHER, & I believe it still would have sold well, with a lot more money coming to me, but I didn’t choose to do so,” he added. “I WILL BE GIVEN NO ‘NICE GUY’ CREDIT?”

Trump announced the first batch of his digital cards in December last year, about a month after announcing his third bid for the White House. According to the cards’ website, the cards are digital collectibles known as non-fungible tokens (NFTs).

“Think of them like traditional baseball or basketball cards but stored digitally so you never have to worry about physical damage,” the website says.

The website also explains that money from the card sale won’t go to Trump’s 2024 presidential campaign, saying that the cards “are not political and have nothing to do with any political campaign.”

The first collection—a total of 44,000 cards listed for sale at $99 each—sold out within a day.
