Donald Trump is using the presidential seal at a fourth golf course to help enhance his business in what could be a violation of the law, Forbes is reporting.
An Instagram post recently featured a photo of the seal, with the official circular, blue-and-silver design, being used as a tee marker at the Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach.
It’s against the law to use the presidential seal in a way that could convey the impression of government approval or sponsorship of a private business.
The seal can only be used for official government business.
A 2018 podcast produced by ProPublica and WNYC reported “dozens” of the markers similar to those seen recently being used at Trump courses.
At the time, the Trump Organization blamed the markers on super fans, and quickly got rid of them when the story emerged.
But the podcast had obtained an order form for the markers, listing them as being purchased by “Trump International.”. »
