President Donald Trump’s campaign is promoting a new shirt that features an eagle clutching a shield with the American flag and ribbon displaying his campaign. The Nazi Reichsadler is an eagle clutching a shield with a swastika.

While eagles have been used since the Roman Empire to signify power, the only eagles clutching a shield in their feet appear on Nazi memorabilia and Trump’s campaign shirt.

It’s a fact that didn’t go unnoticed by those on Twitter, Wednesday. Specifically, the Republican-run Lincoln Project posted the images together, saying, “Come on.”

One person tried to claim that it was similar to the American symbol, which was specifically designed with plenty of symbolism in mind. In the left foot, the eagle is gently holding an olive branch, to signify the strive for peace. In its right foot are 13 arrows, with the claws out, to symbolize strength. In its mouth, the eagle is holding a banner with E Pluribus Unum (out of many, one).

Is there a chance that trump is sabotaging his re-election chances on purpose, or is he really so ignorant he thought we wouldn’t notice?

I don’t think Trump is knowledgeable enough to do a nazi secret handshake, but I think his graphic designers know their audience https://t.co/lXJkpXs8rI

Your new logo, Hitlers logo. Even if you’re trolling this still makes you a douche. pic.twitter.com/q0eG9kIccO

Trump is an impeached Russian asset who uses Nazi symbols in his campaign materials, wages war against peaceful BLM protesters, 130,000 deaths & rising, millions unemployed & starving, & now he’s allowing Russia to kill our soldiers.

The rule book needs to be thrown out.

Trump’s new campaign logo on left. Nazi Alt Right symbol on right. Tell me again he isn’t race baiting! If you don’t vote for Biden, you’re tacitly endorsing this. #RacismInAmerica #TrumpRacism #Biden2020 pic.twitter.com/PO159S92YR

This is exactly what it looks like when big retail (like Walmart) knocks off something from a designer and they tweak just enough to legally get away with it.

That Nazi eagle design is pretty fucking famous and there’s ZERO chance it was an accident.
