Donald Trump's presidential campaign is alive and kicking, as is Trump himself—though a tombstone found in NYC's Central Park may have had passersby thinking otherwise, ABC News reports. Visitors to the park stumbled across the grave marker, located in the Sheep Meadow section, over the weekend, and while it didn't have an actual date of death engraved on it, the slab did boast Trump's 1946 birthdate, as well as a past-tense variant of his famous catchphrase (the epitaph version read "Made America Hate Again").

The stone has since been taken away, per a park spokesperson, in what the New York Daily News calls a "make America excavate again!" move. But was it a serious threat against the POTUS wannabe or a harmless prank? "We're not going to comment on protective procedures or protective knowledge like that," a Secret Service rep says. (Trump has a new grandson.)
