President Donald Trump has made a name for himself by breaking all of the rules – and now he’s just shattered the biggest unwritten rule in politics.
For decades, pundits and political strategists have abided by a seemingly odd rule that politicians should never wear silly hats. Well, Trump tossed that idea out the window this week by proudly wearing a made-in-the-USA cowboy hat during a meeting at the White House.
Trump and his team were hosting a meeting about U.S. manufacturing, including a showcase of dozens of American-made products. One U.S.-based cowboy hat company prepared a special gift for the president – a Stetson hat, customized with the presidential seal and Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan.

This proves it once again – Trump doesn’t care what the political class thinks. He cares what the American people think.
As Breitbart reported earlier today, “The hat presented to Trump was an “El Presidente” — a fur felt hat customized with the presidential seal and the president’s name and “Make America Great Again” campaign slogan, according to the head of Stetson Dustin Noblitt. The president tried the hat on as he visited with business representatives from around the United States.”
Mainstream politicians have avoided wearing silly hats in public for decades, because they’re afraid of being mocked by the media and political opponents. But Trump simply doesn’t operate that way – when a great American business gives you a hat to wear, you wear it!
The event at the White House is part of the Trump administration’s Made in America campaign, where they are highlighting the incredible craftsmanship taking place around the country by American workers.
Trump is starting a new American revolution – he’s putting America first, and he’s refusing to apologize to anyone for that. Thank you, Mr. President!
