AI-faked Images of Donald Trump’s Imagined Arrest Swirl on Twitter

AI-faked Images of Donald Trump’s Imagined Arrest Swirl on Twitter

By eduardogaitancortez

A fake AI-generated image of former President Donald Trump being arrested by police. Have you seen photos of former President Donald Trump being arrested by the police? They are wrong. Or at least they were at the time of writing this article on Sunday afternoon. Images purporting to prove Trump’s arrest have gone viral on social media platforms such as Twitter. But Trump was not arrested, at least not yet.


One image, shared by a Twitter client calling himself The Infinite Dude, looks realistic enough if you don’t look closely enough. The fake Trump, dressed in his signature red tie and blue suit, can be seen being led away by three police officers in a night scene. While The Infinite Dude has only nearly 800 followers on Twitter, the image has been viewed more than 600,000 times.

There is no claim that the image is actually fake, although zooming in on the fingers reveals a monstrous mess. Synthetic wisdom image reproducers such as Midjourney and Secure Diffusion have had problems producing the fingers. Constantly giving users too many digits. Teeth also seem to be difficult, as the AI gives too many teeth to the wrong people.

AI – Artificial Intelligence

However, AI images are relatively new and seem to be getting better by the day. Another fake image, shared by Twitter client O’Keefe Reborn, includes a mug shot of Trump. Although it was clearly created by the AI. For starters, the numbers behind Trump don’t seem like a coherent aspect of anything, a major red flag for AI-created imagery. Again, however, if you are just browsing social media, many people are not likely to ask questions.

Another fake image of former President Donald Trump pretending to show his mug shot. Trump has stated that he will be indicted on Tuesday. Although it is unclear whether this is accurate or not. On Friday, it was reported that the Secret Service was preparing for the possibility of an indictment earlier this week. Which might be rare since no U.S. head of state has ever been arrested. However, other wealthy territories regularly prosecute their leaders when they break the law, as we have seen in Italy, Taiwan and South Korea, to name a few.

Trump spent the weekend delivering various speeches in block letters on his Fact Social social media platform. The former president asked his supporters to protest his possible arrest. That led many to worry about possible mistreatment. On Jan. 6, 2021, Trump held a rally in Washington titled “Cease the Steal,” in which the then-president told rally participants that they would descend on the U.S. Capitol in an effort to stop the certification of the 2020 presidential election.

Donald Trump

If Trump is indicted this week, it is unclear whether we will see photos of Trump’s arrest or even a mug shot. According to CNN reports, Trump’s armed force of lawyers and puppets is reportedly working on a behind-the-scenes deal to allow him to voluntarily turn himself in to the Manhattan district attorney’s office should he actually be indicted.
