Is it considered copyright infringement to use a slogan before or after a trademarked slogan or name? e.g. : "I like Budweiser"..In this "Budweiser" being the trademarked name.

Any information will be highly appreciated
Thank you

If you are selling someone else's trademark on merchandise for sale, then, probably so.

Best to talk to a lawyer for legal questions like that though.

More info is required to understand your situation better.

For example are any registered "Budweiser" Trademarks being used? If so, then it would be infringement.
But if you're using different lettering then you may be able to use it.

For example the "I heart NY" is trademarked by the New York.
However if I did a "I hate NY" with a different lettering can be used.

If it says budweiser it cant be used. The name itself is the trademark.
I did some shirts for a softball team that consisted of their employees and had to get permission from the company to use the name "budweiser badboys". Since it wasnt a budweiser licensed product or official team.

Bud. I just sent over an e-mail explaining my intentions and they gave me the go ahead. I know a few people there so that may have been a factor.
