Steaks, water, boardgames, educational confidence schemes: Donald Trump has lent his name and coppery face to all of the above and more in displays of marketing hereto unheard of for an American politician.

Officers said they found about 5,000 of the orange, Trump-shaped ecstasy tablets along with a large, but unspecified quantity of cash.

Around 9 p.m. on Saturday, according to the statement, the men were pulled over during a traffic stop while traveling in an Austrian-registered Peugeot 307 vehicle along A30, a highway that runs adjacent to Osnabruck.

On Monday, Aug. 21, Osnabrück police said the pills have a street value of about €39,000, or almost $46,000.

A 51-year-old man and his 17-year-old son were in possession of the drugs.

Police said the pair had been driving from Amsterdam, where the drugs are believed to have been produced, to Hanover.

Officers add that they also found a large amount of cash in the auto, which was confiscated and towed.

But now they are in prison, after a judge issued an arrest warrant. They were being promoted and sold on the dark web, at a price of £8 a pill and represent one of a number of novelty tablets to be sold on the United Kingdom market.
