Once a businessman, always a businessman. Even if that means scamming millions of Americans, too, apparently. That’s our president.
According to a report from The Hill, Americans can buy Donald Trump’s “USA” style hat on Walmart’s website for $10. The website describes the hat, which is available in three colors, as a “USA Trump hat.”
Compare the same hat on President Trump’s official online campaign store for $40. The website describes the hat:
‘Official USA 45th Presidential Hat – Red, 40.00.’
The only place online to purchase the Official USA rope hat worn by 45th President-Elect Donald J. Trump, himself.

According to TIME Magazine, however:
‘The hats on Walmart do not appear to be official merchandise nor made by the same manufacturer.’
President Trump long came under fire throughout the campaign season for his infamous tweet attempting to encourage Americans to “buy American,” while simultaneously having his Trump campaign merchandise made in China.
Back on Inauguration Day, the new president tweeted:
‘We will follow two simple rules: BUY AMERICAN & HIRE AMERICAN!#inaugurationDay #MAGA’
