Donald "dons" his newly registered trademark for "MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN"
Trump’s trademark application was filed back in 2012, suggesting that he has been considering a possible political campaign for some time now. The application was filed on an intent-to-use basis, but Trump later filed a Statement of Use, showing use of the mark on Class 35 and Class 36 services on April 12, 2015, and May 22, 2015, respectively. Still, it appears that Ronald Reagan began using this mark much earlier than Trump, during Reagan’s own presidential campaign in the late 1970’s.
Trump has reportedly criticized other Republican candidates, such as Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker and Texas Senator Ted Cruz, for having used Trump’s mark in their own political campaigns.
