Did Lego Pull Products Featuring Police and Rescue Workers?

On Thursday, Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale accused the Lego Group of “erasing cops” by pulling products that feature police, along with the White House set.

The basis for these claims is an article—linked to in several of the tweets—from The Toy Book, a toy industry trade magazine, about an email the Lego Group sent to affiliate marketers on Tuesday. The email asked for products featuring police and other emergency response services “to be removed from sites and any marketing ASAP.” As Parscale mentioned in his tweet, Lego’s White House play set was also included in the list of products.
