Police in Osnabrück, Germany found thousands of the Trump-shaped pills Saturday night in the back of a van which belonged to a 51-year-old man from the Netherlands, where the illegal drugs are suspected to have originated.

The 51-year-old driver of the vehicle and his 17-year-old son were arrested at the scene and the Austrian-registered auto towed away. A search of the auto revealed more than 5,000 tablets in the shape of President Trump's head. The commander in chief's face was stamped on the front and the word "Trump" appeared on the back.

The little orange tablets - which have an estimated street value of nearly £36,000 - were vaguely face-shaped, had a replica of the US President's face on their fronts and the word "Trump" and some stars on the back. The car's two passengers were detained and a judge issued arrest warrants for both of them.

Dutch-made Donald Trump pills have been showing up for some time on the United Kingdom market, according to reports. The Daily Star reported that one seller, who was not identified, was marketing the pills with the tagline "Trump makes partying great again", a play on the president's "Make America Great Again" slogan.
