President Donald Trump in his inaugural address on Friday made a call to “buy American and hire American.” One of the symbols of this campaign was a popular Trump’s trademark red baseball caps with slogan “Make America Great Again”. Many Americans who proudly bought these caps to support the campaign with great surprise had read on the label inside the cap, that their red caps “Make America Great Again” were made in Vietnam. As well as China and Bangladesh.
This information spread worldwide from top famous news agencies to social media.
Reuters said: “The Trump hats available for purchase on Trump’s official campaign website are made in the United States and cost between $25 and $30, according to the label inside those caps. But they are also more expensive than the $20 versions sold by street vendors in Washington on Friday.”
