Katherine Sullivan of ProPublica follows up on an initial report of presidential seal tee markers ordered by "Trump International" in likely violation of federal law, with the club now saying the markers have been removed from the ground where they were installed. 

The Palm Beach club said they were a gift from members.

In a statement Tuesday morning, a spokesman for the company said, “The plaques were presented to the club by a small group of members, who are incredible fans of the President, in honor of Presidents day [sic] weekend. They were temporary and have since been removed.”
As our story noted, an order form for the markers lists them as being bought by “Trump International.”

 A post on Sunday, since removed, showed how the Presidents Day weekend commemorative appeared.
