THE White House gift shop is already selling $100 commemorative coins proclaiming President Donald Trump has "defeated" Covid-19.
The online shop recently opened up pre-orders for the comic book-style coin of the president beating coronavirus, which he was diagnosed with last week.
The White House Gift Shop, which is no longer affiliated with the actual White House, has yet to provide a photo of the coin, pre-orders of which will ship on November 14.
"Historic Moments in History: President Donald J. Trump defeats Covid with icons of his entire first term," reads the website where people can pre-order the coin.
The coin, designed by Anthony Giannini – who is also the board chairman of the White House Gift Shop – is part of a series that "chronicles historic moments in the presidency of President Donald J. Trump."
"For these past four years, I have created and co-designed the Historic Moments in World History Coin Art, Narrative Series," Giannini wrote.
"As I predicted that the Korean Summits would occur, with recognition for this prediction in Breitbart News, and when all media thought otherwise, mocked me and mocked President Trump," Giannini wrote.
"We here at WHGS had Faith: The Summit Occured," Giannini wrote of the summit between Trump and Kim Jong-un.
"When we heard the sad news of President Trump's positive COVID test, once again we had faith and prayed but we knew our President would find a way to Knockout COVID in early rounds of this battle."
"President Trump, as you know, is a fan of boxing, and the new design includes more than a hint of superhero qualities in history's most fascinating president," Giannini continued.
"President Trump, whether you are in his corner or not, is a sui generis, a one-of-a-kind, bigger than life, singular energetic force," he concluded.
Giannini described the Covid-19 coin as the last coin within the series to showcase "President Trump's ascendance over and defeat of the deadly COVID pandemic virus."
"This final coin in this phase of the collection, at least for President Trump's first term, presents icons, or motifs, of his myriad successes across these past four years despite attempts to subvert him from so many negative fronts," he ended.
Giannini said he designed the coin in "superhero graphic art because surrounding President Donald J. Trump is a mythos never before seen in a United States president, a mythos not unlike the Epic of Gilgamesh."
The website states the first 1,500 orders will receive a complimentary presidential blue PPE mask as well.
