“Russian mining firm puts Trump’s face on its asbestos products” – Really

“Trump seal of approval” from Guardian article and Facebook page for mine

An automated daily Google search for asbestos has produced yet another article I would never think to look for.  The headline states:

Russian mining firm puts Trump’s face on its asbestos products”

The article is from the Guardian, July 11, 2018, and appears to be a legitimate picture.  If not, someone has gone to great effort to create a fake. See https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2018/jul/11/asbestos-trump-face-seal-uralasbest-russia.

I do assume the “approval” is fake.

Also see the  same picture on the Facebook page for the Uralasbest mine – https://www.facebook.com/Uralasbest/posts/531137150617873.
