Lawyers for President Trump have sent cease and desist orders to the GOP and the National Republican Congressional Committee who have been using his name and likeness to fundraise for anti-Trump GOP politicians.
Former President Donald Trump’s lawyers on Friday sent a cease-and-desist letter to three different prominent fundraising organizations for the GOP, asking them to not use his name and likeness in outreach.
Apparently, Trump himself got wind of the fact that many GOP organizations are still using his name and likeness to raise funds for themselves which then go to people who tried (unsuccessfully) to impeach him.

An unnamed source on the Trump team commented on the cease-and-desist letter: “President Trump remains committed to the Republican Party and electing America First conservatives, but that doesn’t give anyone – friend or foe – permission to use his likeness without explicit approval.” (H/T – CBD)
Honestly, this story made my small heart grew three sizes this day!
