Dem Lawmaker Mocks Trump By Wearing Trump/Putin Hat During ‘Made In America’ Week
Congressman Ted Lieu of California trolled Donald Trump on Tuesday when he mocked his “Made In America” campaign by wearing a lookalike of Trump’s “Make America Great Again” hat, but with “Trump, Putin 2016” written on it.
Lieu showcased the hat in a Twitter post on Tuesday. He shared a selfie of himself in front of congress wearing the hate.
His tweet read:
“Wearing this special hat for White House Made in America week. Unlike the products of [Trump] and Ivanka Trump it’s Made in America!”

Lieu has been critical of Trump in the past. Last week he said on MSNBC, “Donald Trump Jr. clearly violated the Federal Election Campaign Act by conspiring to solicit something of value from a foreign national.”
“And as a former prosecutor, I can tell you that conspiracy is very easy to prove. You just have to show he took an act in furtherance of the crime and in this case not only did he write an email back saying ‘I love it,’ getting the dirt on Hillary Clinton, he also set up a meeting and showed up at the meeting. That more than completes the crime of conspiracy.”
