Former President Donald Trump this week teased a "major announcement" that turned out to be a set of digital trading cards that depict him as a variety of American male icons.
If the former president believed that this move would sit well with his base, however, he appears to have been mistaken.
Reaction to the "major announcement" from many longtime MAGA Twitter users ranged from mild disappointment to outright anger that he got them hyped up for major news only to instead sell them $99 NFTs.
"As much as I love President Trump, this really was a let-down!" wrote longtime MAGA fan Lavern Spicer.

"This...this...was the 'major announcement' he was supposed to give? .............why tho???" wrote Jeff Charles.
"Man…when all Patriots are looking for is hope for the future of our country and Trump hypes everybody up with a 'BIG ANNOUNCEMENT," wrote the Hodget Twins, a "conservative comedy" duo. "Then drops a low quality NFT collection video as the 'announcement', it just pushes people away…Damn."
Notorious white nationalist troll Baked Alaska, who was once so devoted to Trump that he rioted on his behalf at the United States Capitol building, wrote that he was shifting his allegiance to Hitler-praising rapper Kanye West.
"Wait hold up….. that MAJOR announcement we were all waiting for is literally Trump trading cards…," he wrote. "Meanwhile, Ye is preaching the Bible & defending J6 victims….. this is why Trump can’t win in 24."
