Just a day after an uproar over reports that a special Inaugural Day pass for Washington D.C.'s Metro system did not include a photo of Donald Trump, a solution appears to have been found to make everyone happy.

The transit authority confirmed it is now designing special sleeves that will feature a photo of the president-elect, according to Fox News.

Metro had unveiled the design of the special fare cards, which featured the flag and the White House — but no Trump. Officials said they never received permission from the Trump team to use a photo, according to the news network.

But now the Presidential Inaugural Committee has announced it is "working closely" with Metro to design a special sleeve for the cards, Fox News reports.

The last two inauguration cards featured photos of President Barack Obama.
