The U.S. President Donald Trump delivered a speech at the Marriott Marquis hotel in Washington in front of a fake presidential seal; the incident occurred July 23, as Business Insider reported.

“Instead of the bald eagle featured in the official seal of the president of the United States, the image featured a double-headed eagle, which bears a striking resemblance to the one on the official coat of arms of the Russian Federation,” the message reads.

This seemed as a joke over Trump’s administration controversial ties to Russia, “which US intelligence says interfered in the US election in a bid to aid Trump's candidacy”.

“And instead of clutching arrows in its left claw, the eagle in the altered image held golf clubs — most likely a not-so-subtle reference to one of Trump's favorite hobbies,” the news agency reports.
