Walmart selling ‘USA Trump hats’ at one-fourth of Trump’s price

Walmart is selling a President Trump-style “USA” for a quarter of the price that the caps go for in his online campaign store.

The head gear, emblazoned with “USA” and available in three colors, is described on Walmart’s website as a “USA Trump hat” and sells for $10.

Similar “45th Presidential Hats” will set buyers back $40 on Trump’s official online campaign store. A description on the site say it’s the “only place online to purchase the Official USA rope hat worn by 45th President-Elect [sic] Donald J. Trump, himself.”

While the official Trump hats are “proudly made” in the United States, according to the website, there’s no indication where the Walmart hats are produced.

Time magazine, which first reported the Walmart hat sales, said they “do not appear to be official merchandise nor made by the same manufacturer” as Trump’s.

Trump has been eyed sporting the “USA” hats at numerous public events, including a trip to Hurricane Harvey-ravaged Houston this week.

While not illegal, a watchdog group reportedly called it “inappropriate” for Trump to don for-sale campaign while appearing at public outings in his capacity as commander in chief.
