Trump-Pence Logo refers to the official insignia of Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign redesigned and unveiled by his fundraising committee to incorporate the Republican presidential nominee's newly appointed running mate and Indiana's Republican governor, Mike Pence. Upon its debut in July 2016, the image instantly became a subject of online mockeries due to the suggestive nature of its interlocked letters T and P.
On July 15th, 2016, after days of rumored reports that the presumptive Republican presidential nominee is vetting Indiana's Republican governor Mike Pence as his running mate in the upcoming presidential campaign, Trump officially confirmed the rumors via Twitter by announcing that he has chosen Pence as the vice presidential candidate. Shortly after the announcement, Make America Great Again Committee, the joint fundraising committee between Trump's campaign and the Republican National Committee, sent out an email newsletter to the supporters unveiling a new logo for the campaign, which features an interlocked combination of the letters T and P (for Trump and Pence) on a red-and-blue flag resembling the Star Spangled Banner.
Within the hour of its unveiling, the new Trump-Pence logo became a hot topic of discussions upon entering circulation on Twitter, with many viewers placing an emphasis on the suggestive nature of the interlocked letters featured in the logo.
At 12:05 p.m., @Darth tweeted an animated GIF version of the Trump-Pence logo in response to Twitter user Judd Legum's more charitable interpretation of the interlocked letters. In less than seven hours, the tweet garnered nearly 2,000 retweets and over 2,200 likes (shown below).
By early afternoon, the new Trump-Pence logo had been declared as the latest meme to emerge from the race to the White House by several political blogs and news outlets, including The Daily Beast, Politico, NPR and CNN, among others.
