Former President Donald Trump is facing potential legal trouble over a unique Glock auctioned at his Mar-a-Lago estate, raising eyebrows and sparking concerns. Meidas Touch, as reported by Newsweek on November 11, 2023, claimed that the firearm, labeled a one of a kind Trump Glock, triggered a bidding war starting at $10,000 during a charity event.
Images circulating on social media have fueled speculation about Trump’s involvement, potentially violating federal laws given his active legal proceedings. Laws prohibiting firearm transactions by those under indictment for crimes with a possible prison sentence exceeding one year could expose Trump and others to legal consequences, including imprisonment.
Although Newsweek couldn’t independently verify Trump’s presence or participation, a video released by Meidas Touch showed the auctioneer humorously questioning potential buyers about firearm licenses. The winning bid reportedly came from a Mar-a-Lago guest, offering $10,000.
Despite claims of Trump’s presence at the auction, it remains unverified. If true, this could complicate matters, suggesting his awareness of the sale and strengthening the case against him. Palm Beach County State Attorney Dave Aronberg suggested that Trump might distance himself, claiming the gun wasn’t truly his, and event organizers used his name and image for charity fundraising.
The firearm’s proceeds were intended for the Forever Family Rescue Foundation, an animal welfare and rescue charity. Aronberg emphasized the unanswered questions, hinting at the possibility of a criminal investigation, which could become another legal headache for the former president.
