In recent weeks, the Trump Organization has ordered golf tee markers emblazoned with the presidential seal—a possible violation of federal law. The seal is only authorized to be used for official government business. In a document reviewed by WNYC and ProPublica, the order form for the tee markers from Eagle Sign and Design indicate that the organization ordered “dozens of round, 12-inch replicas of the presidential seal to be placed next to the tee boxes at Trump golf course holes.” Eagle Sign and Design confirmed it “made the design, and the client confirmed the design,” declining to name the client to WNYC.

President Trump has been under scrutiny for using the presidency to bolster his private namesake businesses. He’s reportedly “still involved” in his hotel business.
