Having anticipated a victory by Hillary Clinton, the country wanted to be the first to commemorate this historic event, a woman elected as the 45th President of the United States, with a postage stamp to be issued on the day of her Inauguration.
Unfortunately for the Post Office in Liberia, the election did not turn out as anticipated and Donald Trump was the winner. The stamps have been withdrawn. The few that have survived could be very much in demand as "Non-Issued" stamps for collectors.
Among the reception guests were World Bank President Jim Yong Kim and some foreign leaders, including Hendrik Toomas Ilves, president of Estonia; Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, president of Liberia; and Edi Rama, prime minister of Albania.
Christine Lagarde, managing director of the International Monetary Fund, and Bono of the rock band U2 also attended the reception, according to the source familiar with the wedding.
Also expected to attend were fellow titans of the hedge fund world, Paul Tudor Jones and Julian Robertson. From the U.S. political realm those invited included Minority Leader of the U.S. House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi and the lieutenant governor of California, Gavin Newsom, both Democrats.

I would think that the NFL and The govt of Liberia should not have that in common, but it is just taxpayer $$.
New stamps from Liberia commemorate the upcoming Nov. 8 presidential election in the United States. Called Race to the White House, these stamps and souvenir sheets feature photographs of the candidates, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, and their spouses. Inter-Governmental Philatelic Corp., the new-issue agency for Liberia, reports that the issue date was July 19.
