The internet is losing it over Donald Trump unveiling his USD$99 (AUD$147, £81) trading cards.

Yesterday (Thursday, December 15), the former president made the announcement that for the ‘low’ price of $99, you can purchase his NFTs.

He wrote his social media platform Truth Social: "MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT! My official Donald Trump Digital Trading Card collection is here! These limited edition cards feature amazing ART of my Life & Career!

"Collect all of your favorite Trump Digital Trading Cards, very much like a baseball card, but hopefully much more exciting.

"Go to collecttrumpcards.com/ & GET YOUR CARDS NOW! Only $99 each! Would make a great Christmas gift. Don’t Wait. They will be gone, I believe, very quickly!"

The 76-year-old also posted a teaser video which depicted him as a superhero with a six-pack - nice try, Donald - shooting laser beams from his eyes while standing outside Trump Towers.

Other NFTs showed the Republican dressed up as different American heroes, including an astronaut, a cowboy and a fighter pilot.

He also notified viewers that buyers would enter a sweepstake, with prizes including having dinner with Trump, playing golf with him or a bunch of autographs signed by yours truly.

Shortly after Trump debuted his digital trading cards, the internet was left in stitches.

One person on Twitter wrote: "Honestly shocked there isn’t one of him on a cross."

Another said: "Honestly I think that’s the most American thing Republican president could do after getting kicked out of office."

A third shared: "Posts like these always help me deal with the internal cringe of taking as many selfies as I do in so many situations - I worry about being tasteless until I see what this idiot does."

While another commented: "I wanna meet the graphic designer who had to make all of these."

Let’s be real, here, though. It was probably Donald Trump Jr. who bought a subscription to Photoshop.

Trump’s NFTs come almost a month after he announced his bid to run for president in 2024.

While announcing his plans to run, he told his loyal fans that the US is a 'nation in decline', believing he is the savior to bring it back to glory.

"This decline is not a fate we must accept," he said, as per ABC News.

"When given the choice, boldly, clearly and directly, I believe the American people will overwhelmingly reject the left's platform of national ruin."

Let’s just hope 'America needs a superhero' isn’t his next campaign slogan.
