Donald Trump’s campaign sells a variety of products under the “Trump” brand to help fund his presidential run, which is all well and good for a candidate who prides himself on being self-funded.
So it appears Donald Trump’s campaign photoshopped their model to be brown: pic.twitter.com/V0DghCiQAW

However, one social activist has called his campaign out for Photoshopping product pictures so that the models in them appear more diverse than they are, RawStory reports.
Eric Ming, a worker for Donna Edwards’ senate campaign, tweeted a side-by-side comparison of an original item photo from source site JCGApparl with a photo from the Trump campaign website to show that it was digitally manipulated to make a model who appears white appear African American instead.
After Ming’s tweet, the model in the photo was changed on Thursday to a white model.
