President-elect Donald Trump debuted a new hat over the weekend, a red cap in the same style of the “Make America Great Again” hats that became an icon of his presidential campaign. The new hat features “USA” on the front and a declaratory “45” on the right side of the hat. It is unclear what, if anything, appears on the back of the hat. The country of manufacture is unknown at press time.
Once available for sale, this hat will join a number of other items released for sale since Election Day, as Trump continues to monetize his new office unlike any president before him.
Trump introduced the original Make America Great Again hats on the campaign trail in 2015 shortly before making them available for sale to the public; proceeds from those $25 hats are considered donations to the Trump Make America Great Again Committee, a joint fundraising effort between Donald J. Trump for President and the Republican National Committee.
