Hat, Donald Trump, 2016


In 2012, Donald Trump applied for a trademark for “Make America Great Again,” a slogan that had been used by previous presidential candidates Republican Ronald Reagan and Democrat Bill Clinton. Trump’s application was approved in 2015 and the Republican candidate first wore a campaign golf hat with the slogan in July of that year. Hats like this one were available to supporters in many colors but red was one of the most popular. Trump was elected president in 2016 defeating his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton.
