Graphic designer Charles Leazott oversaw the presidential seal and made a fake one that has become widespread.
The press secretary of the non-profit conservative group Turning Point USA reported journalists that a co-worker who was in charge of a fake seal noticed during the Donald Trump’s speech was dismissed.
“We did let the individual go. I don’t think it was malicious intent, but nevertheless,” he said.
CNN stated that it was an accident to make the picture of it.
“One of our video team members did a Google Image search for a high-res png presidential seal,” adding that the team member “did the search and with the pressure of the event, didn’t notice that it is a doctored seal”.

Charles Leazott, meanwhile, considered it “”the most petty piece of art” for all his life.
“This was just a goofy thing for some people I knew. I had no idea it would blow up like this,” he said.
The image with offensive Spanish words to Trump showed a two-headed eagle carrying a golf bag which are similar to a crest of many European countries including Russia.
