According to The Washington Post, former president Donald Trump was photographed using the presidential seal while hosting a Saudi Arabia-backed LIV golf tournament in Bedminster.
Using the seal is “a violation of federal law that could result in imprisonment of ‘not more than six months,’ a fine, or both,” The Post reports.
“The seal was plastered on towels, golf carts and other items as the former president participated in the pro-am of the Saudi-sponsored tournament Thursday. While violating this law could result in imprisonment of ‘not more than six months,’ a fine, or both, these punishments are rarely dolled out,” the newspaper noted.
The former president is notorious for using the presidential seal for personal gain.
The logo has been spotted at his golf course in West Palm Beach. The Trump Organization ordered golf course markers with the presidential seal on them, according to ProPublica.
Raw Story also reported that “four Trump golf courses have been implicated in using the presidential seal. Trump’s golf course in the Bronx was implicated in October followed by Florida’s Trump National Golf Club Jupiter in November.”
And the presidential seal was also seen at Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Florida in June.
