Walmart Selling Trump’s ‘USA’ Hat At A Quarter Of What Trump Is Selling It For
The hat Donald Trump has been promoting lately is now being sold at Walmart for a quarter of the price that it sells on his campaign website.
According to the Trump campaign store online, the website is the “only place online to purchase the Official USA rope hat worn by 45th President-Elect [sic] Donald J. Trump, himself.”
The website sells the hats for $40, while Walmart is selling them for $10.
Trump has been promoting his “USA” hat in recent rallies, including trips to Texas following Hurricane Harvey.
This has caused criticism from many. Trump is using a national tragedy as a chance to promote his brand and make money.
While not illegal, a watchdog group reportedly called it “inappropriate” for Trump to promote his campaign items while appearing at public outings in his capacity president.
