Workers preparing for President-elect Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpDavid Axelrod after Ginsburg cancer treatment: Supreme Court vacancy could 'tear this country apart' EU says it will 'respond in kind' if US slaps tariffs on France Ginsburg again leaves Supreme Court with an uncertain future MORE's inauguration next week are covering up the logos on port-a-potties that list the restroom supplier's name: Don's Johns.

Washington activist Tim Krepp first pointed out on social media that the portable restrooms along the National Mall had the company's name blocked out by tape.

Don's Johns has supplied the port-a-potties for many major outdoor events in Washington, including President Obama's inaugurations in 2009 and 2013, according to The Associated Press.


The company's name bears some resemblance to the president-elect's full name: Donald John Trump. 

Robert Weghorst, chief operating officer for Don's Johns, told the AP he did not know the logos were being covered up until the AP reported on it, and he started receiving calls and seeing it on social media.

"We don't know why it's being done. We didn't tell someone to do it," he said in a telephone interview Friday. "We're proud to have our name on the units."
