Pretty unreal at this point. I'm not sure legally if they can stop them from doing so?


The request comes after Trump Make America Great Again Committee, a joint RNC and Trump campaign fundraising committee, offered a set of commemorative coins, to supporters donating more than $US45. They were embossed with President Ronald Reagan’s image on one side and President Donald Trump’s on the other.

The request from the foundation to cease using Reagan’s image in the fundraising drive was first reported by Washington Post columnist Karen Tumulty on Saturday.

Reagan Foundation Chief Marketing Officer Melissa Giller confirmed the request in a statement to The Hill.

Reportedly, this is the first time this request has come out:


RNC Communications Director Michael Ahrens told Forbes that the request came as a surprise because the foundation “has not objected to us using President Reagan’s likeness before,”


I mean if we want another reference, Ronald Reagan's son isn't a fan of him as well. Although I vaguely recall that Ron Reagan had been critical of the GOP for some years now so it's nothing new;

Ron Reagan says his father 'would have been embarrassed and ashamed' of Trump

In any case, this is something new, and we have no real comment behind the foundation's core reason, although I could speculate why.

Sounds like the surviving members of the Reagan and the Bush family have been coerced or paid off.

That's too bad.

Just an idea.

I didn't think B-actors were ashamed of anything since He did the Bonzo movies. Now if he'd done classic B movie SIFI that would of been diffwrent they were so bad they were good.

How about a compromise, liberals use the star spangled banner and conservatives use the confederate flag.

Of course Reagan’s son isn’t a fan of Trump, he is a flaming Liberal.
Every flaming Liberal is against Trump., so his words are just regurgitated bullsh!t.

And apparently that applies to hosts of cheezy, phony reality shows as well.

The reasoning behind his suggestion that they shouldn’t be allowed to use the American flag is because the Dems are anti-American.
Maybe Antifa will let you guys use their flag.
