Donald Trump’s campaign released a modified version of its Trump-Pence logo Saturday in light of some critics’ unexpected interpretations of the original.
The original Trump-Pence logo featured an American flag-inspired graphic with a “T” that interlaces a “P” in blue. Beneath the graphic, “TRUMP” sits atop “PENCE,” accompanied by Trump’s slogan “Make America Great Again.”

But it was the graphic specifically that caught people’s attention. The design was immediately mocked by users on social media, like those who thought the graphic was sexually suggestive.

But come Saturday, Trump’s campaign website had changed the logo to just the names and slogan without the graphic attached. According to CNN, Trump campaign spokesman Jason Miller said “We have a number of logos. The final one won’t be unveiled until the convention.”
