President Trumps plan to rebrand the Whitehouse has suffered a major setback when the huge gold letters, intended to spell out his name on the iconic dome have been supplied incorrectly. Of the five letters, costing $2.5million dollars each, only two were correct; the “U” and the “T”.
A Whitehouse spokesman initially blamed the suppliers, T4Texas, and their parent company, T4Tijuana. President Trump later tweeted ” This is why we can’t trust Mexico. Just trying to make America great again. So sad.” Hours later the CEO of T4Tijuana, Inigo Montoya, provided the order form from the Whitehouse, clearly signed by President Trump. He said “This was a major contract for us and a very complex piece of engineering. Getting the exact curve on the letters to fit the dome and the huge quantity of gold leaf used mean this is a make or break contract for us. Of course we are not going to get it wrong”.
A Whitehouse spokesman later claimed that the fake order form had been slipped among a sheaf of Presidential orders by an Obama appointee and has fired several back office staff. The President tweeted later “We have fired the haters who tried to stop us making America great. So sad. Doing a beautiful deal with the unwanted letters.”
It is understood the “R”, “M” and “P” have been ordered and put on a priority schedule by T4Tijuana. President Trump is understood to be in negotiations with CNN and a number of celebrities to purchase the two mistakenly ordered letters. Chuck Norris was unavailable for comment.
