Donald Trump’s campaign has scrapped a new logo that was released Friday with running mate Mike Pence’s name due to liberal backlash. Liberal media and pundits mocked the interlocking “TP” logo design, which was heavily criticized by reporters and on social media for appearing “sexually suggestive.”
Sources told Fox News Trump personally approved the design from among several options. The decision to change the logo again was made late Friday night after the media firestorm.
The second new logo appears to be the same, except for the removal of the controversial interlocking letters. It now shows only the candidates’ last names, one atop the other with “Make America Great Again” below.
The old logo and new logo without the “TP” design can be viewed below:
