USA Today Says Trump Campaign Features Nazi Symbol, Later Issues Important Point of Clarification

USA TODAY has offered an important point of clarification after suggesting the Trump 2020 Campaign has adopted a Nazi symbol.

The outlet on Sunday tweeted an article fact-checking the claim, along with the words: “The claim: Trump campaign shirts feature imperial eagle, a Nazi symbol. Our ruling: True”

After copping a clobbering in the replies, the outlet was forced to later issue a follow-up tweet clarifying that the eagle is also, in fact, a longtime symbol of the United States.

“Clarification: The claim that Trump 2020 has put out a T-shirt with a symbol similar to a Nazi eagle and is being criticized for it is true. Worth noting, the eagle is a longtime US symbol, too.”

The eagle appears on the U.S. presidential seal, U.S. Army and Navy seal, and even Nancy Pelosi’s Speaker of the House website. Enemy of the people, indeed.
