( – Donald Trump’s campaign sent to the House Freedom Caucus Chair Bob Good’s (R-VA) reelection campaign a cease-and-desist letter to block him from producing any merchandise that claimed that Trump had expressed support for the House Representative. 

On Friday the Trump campaign confirmed to the Hill that the letter had been sent out to the campaign after Good’s campaign used an image of the former President in an attempt to boost his reelection attempts. 

Attorney David Warrington stated in the letter that it was clear that the campaign lacked the authorization to use the former president’s name or likeness and that they were falsely implying that Trump had supported his candidacy. He added that Good and his campaign did not have the authority to claim that they were in any way associated with Trump or his campaign. 

The letter had come out only days after Trump endorsed Virginia state Sen. John McGuire who is looking to beat Good in the primary on June 18th. 

The letter noted that using any material that falsely displayed the former President and gave the impression he endorsed the candidate was a fraud on all voters in the 5th Congressional District in Virginia. A reference to a photo from a campaign sign was also provided as in the sign Trump’s name had been placed right above Good’s. 

Warrington pointed out that this was abusing voters’ trust through false statements. 

On Tuesday, Trump posted on Truth Social to express his support for McGuire.
