Rock the Vote Calls Out Eric Trump For Stealing Their Voter Registration Graphic: ‘New Low’
The nonprofit group Rock The Vote condemned first-son Eric Trump for stealing their voter registration graphic today, calling the content theft a “new low.”
“This is a new low,” the organization tweeted today in response to President Donald Trump’s son ripping their work. “We are an unaffiliated, non partisan organization who encourages everyone to vote, not just one group.”

Eric Trump’s initial tweet included a call for Republicans to register to vote, since “today is the LAST day to register to vote” in certain states.
Friends, today is the LAST day to register to vote in in the following states!
AZ, AR, FL, GA, IN, HI, KY, LA, MI, MS, NM, NV, OH, PA, TN & TX

Rock The Vote’s Action Fund also called out Trump’s son, tweeting, “We know you’re accustomed to ripping folks off, but claiming our graphic for partisan hackery when you support voter suppression & the disenfranchisement of millions is gross, even for you.”
Their post included a side-by-side of Rock The Vote’s original graphic and Eric Trump’s, which had the logo cropped out.
We know you’re accustomed to ripping folks off, but claiming our graphic for partisan hackery when you support voter suppression & the disenfranchisement of millions is gross, even for you.
