Trump's mugshot has become a bizarre TikTok fusion filter
Donald Trump arrested for fourth time

Donald Trump's mugshot made news around the world, and now you can see what your face looks like merged with the infamous image thanks to a new TikTok filter.

As part of the filter, there is a three-second countdown as the screen shows a side-by-side of you and Trump’s mugshot as your face then morphs into Trump’s face, with the original mugshot right next to yours for comparison.

For this trend, people are seeing for themselves what they look at when they merge with Trump and have been using the song "Locked Up," by Akon to add to the comedy of it all.

So far it has proven popular as there have been nearly 50,000 videos created using the filter.

Here are some examples of the most viral videos from the trend:

A TikTok from @itsary96 using the filter received 3.3m views as she admitted: "I NEVER RAN TO DO A FILTER SO FAST."
