Donald Trump, one of candidates in the running for the US presidency has unveiled his official campaign logo, pictured above, following his announcement declaring Indiana Governor Mike Pence as his Vice President running mate.
Shortly after the logo’s release, the internet noticed a queer detail about the Trump-Pence visual, specifically the ‘T’ penetrating the ‘P’, that went on to spark numerous sexualized jokes online.
Following the ridicules that ensued on social media, the logo was revised sans the flag to a simple ‘TRUMP’ positioned above ‘PENCE’.
When questioned about the tweaked design, Trump campaign spokesperson Jason Miller explained to CNN, “We have a number of logos. The final one won’t be unveiled until the convention.”
View the funny responses that surfaced on Twitter as well as the revised visual below.
