The Trump Administration has found themselves in hot water once again. And oddly enough, this time it's not with our foreign enemies, allies, people within our own government, or the various races and cultures that make up our country's population. No, this time Trump has gone and pissed off Microsoft.

Trump's new "Space Force" is looking for a logo. They've had a number of ideas, ranging from familiar, classic looks to sleek and futuristic designs. With so many possible ideas, it was hard to narrow it down to just one. But Trump decided to design his own, and insisted that it be the final design. A thoughtful, generous gesture. If it wasn't quite literally the "UNSC" logo from the popular Halo franchise.

Now this looks familiar

As soon as the logo was unveiled, Microsoft issued an immediate cease and desist. For most copyright issues like this, that would be the end of the story. But of course, this is President Donald Trump we're talking about.

Trump took to Twitter to immediately fire back, first insisting that it was not a copied logo but a completely different logo, before his story shifted to "I thought of it first". Trump then began to berate Microsoft and the people at 343 that develop Halo for "fucking up the series" and "failing to put out a good Halo since Bungie left". Before long, the meltdown extended to Gears of War, Banjo-Kazooie, Fable, and more, with Trump alleging that Microsoft kills everything it touches and doesn't know how to make games.

The Twitter rant ended with Trump tweeting a picture of him "designing the logo", to prove that it was in fact he that thought of the UNSC logo first.

Eagle, cool

Microsoft's statement on the matter is "We will defend our intellectual property to the fullest extent of the law, even if that means taking the President of the United States to court".

Trump himself went on the record saying "Money-grubbing Microsoft doesn't care about gamers like us, they need to stop ruining franchises and give Banjo back to Nintendo. Battletoads too, they'll probably fuck that up too".

We reached out to the Trump Administration to see how they'd be handling this debacle, but they declined to comment.
