Mr. T, the larger-than-life former member of TV's 'The A-Team', is in dispute with President Donald Trump and his White House staff, after having his name confiscated, so that the president is the only 'Mr. T' in people's minds.

T, real name Laurence Tureaud, has been known by the name 'Mr. T' since his days as a bouncer, and did not react well to the suggestion that he stop using it, and call himself either Clubber Lang or B. A. Baracus, instead.

Baracus - or 'BA' (Bad Attitude) - was the name used by Mr. Tureaud in 'The A-Team', and was so convincing, that co-star George Peppard thought that it was his real name, and frequently called him by it off-set, in the street, in restaurants, at the market, at award ceremonies, in the shower, and so on.

Mr Tureaud received the notification that he was to desist from using the name on Tuesday by text, at his Chicago home. Asked for his thoughts about it, and about Mr. Trump, in general, he said:

"I pity the fool."
