The first former president of the United States to face any indictment, let alone four, surrendered on racketeering (RICO) charges at the jail in Fulton County, Georgia, as expected on Thursday, culminating in the release of Donald Trump’s long-awaited iconic mug shot.

For years, viral memes envisioned a photo of Trump glaring into a camera in jailhouse orange. In reality, Trump showed up in his trademark blue suit and red tie.

Though Trump was arrested, fingerprinted and booked in other jurisdictions, New York did not release a mug shot and there are no federal mug shots to be obtained. Fulton County mug shot practices differ, as the mug shots of Trump co-defendants there have already shown. All 18 co-defendants also charged as participants in a criminal enterprise to overturn the 2020 election will be subjected to posing for the tell-tale jailhouse photograph.
