AI-Generated Images On Twitter Show Trump Getting Arrested

Twitter users have shared images generated by artificial intelligence (AI) showing former President Donald Trump resisting arrest and trying to run from police ahead of his potential indictment in New York.

The fabricated images showed the different ways Trump would be arrested. Some showed how he would act in prison.

In one image, Trump is yelling and fighting off officers from the New York Police Department (NYPD).

In others, Trump is breaking free from cops and running away as former first lady Melania Trump and Donald Trump Jr. protest his arrest.

Twitter users shared the AI-generated images and falsely claimed they were real.

Eliot Higgins, the founder of the investigative group Bellingcat, shared the fake images on Twitter and said they were made with the AI text-to-image generator, Midjourney.

The images were created using the prompt “Donald Trump falling over while getting arrested. Fibonacci Spiral. News footage,” Higgins said.

“The Trump arrest image was really just casually showing both how good and bad Midjourney was at rendering real scenes, like the first image has Trump with three legs and a police belt,” Higgins added.

“I had assumed that people would realize Donald Trump has two legs, not three, but that appears not to have stopped some people passing them off as genuine, which highlights that lack of critical thinking skills in our educational system,” he continued.

Another image created by a Twitter user known as O’Keefe Reborn shows a mugshot of Trump and a large group of people setting fire to a building in New York.

Trump will likely receive an indictment by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, a Democrat whose office received funds from liberal billionaire George Soros.

Bragg’s investigation centers on a hush-money case in which Trump’s former attorney, Michael Cohen, paid $130,000 to adult film actress Stormy Daniels to remain silent about her alleged affair with Trump. Both have denied having an intimate relationship with one another.

House Republicans called for Bragg to testify before Congress and hand over documents related to Trump’s potential indictment.

In a letter to Bragg, Reps. Jim Jordan (R-OH), James Comer (R-KY), and Bryan Steil (R-WI) accused him of preparing to “engage in an unprecedented abuse of prosecutorial authority.”

Trump’s indictment would make him the first former president ever to be charged with a crime.
