The Federal Elections Commission is ordering Trump Has Tiny Hands PAC to change its name or face “an audit or enforcement action.”
“Your committee’s name includes the name of a candidate; however, your committee does not appear to be an authorized committee of that candidate,” the FEC wrote in a letter to the PAC.
The letter tells the political action committee it must change its name “so that it does not include the candidate’s name” if it is not authorized by Republican presidential front-runner Donald TrumpDonald TrumpManafort-linked accounts on Cyprus probed: report Republican failure Trump's environmental order jeopardizes our national security MORE.

Trump Has Tiny Hands PAC was launched last Monday by Portland, Ore., resident Henry Kraemer.
Kraemer told The Hill he decided to start the PAC when Trump denied “he has tiny baby hands.”
“When a call comes into the White House at 3 a.m., will Donald Trump’s tiny baby hands be able to lift the phone receiver? This is something Americans should know before voting,” he said last week.

The insult drew a memorable response from Trump during a debate earlier this month.
"He referred to my hands — if they are small, something else must be small. I guarantee you, there's no problem," Trump said.
