A Christmas tree ornament that is a mini-replica of the now-famous red hat with Donald Trump’s campaign slogan ‘Make America Great Again’ has sold out on Amazon.
The collectible, which was offered for $149, proved to be a hot item, no doubt boosted by Trump’s shock election victory on November 8, The Washington Examiner reported.
The Trump Make America Great Again Committee – the joint fundraising committee between the president-elect’s campaign and the Republican National Committee – sent an email to supporters this week offering them the chance to buy a Christmas ornament version of the famed red ‘Make America Great Again’ ball cap.
The ornament is made of brass and finished in 14 karat gold, which would explain the exorbitant price tag.

The Donald Trump campaign, in conjunction with the Republican National Committee, sold collectible Christmas ornaments for $149
The ornaments are brass with 14 karat gold and come in the shape of the iconic ‘Make America Great Again’ baseball cap
‘President-elect Trump loves Christmas and makes a point of proudly saying “Merry Christmas” every chance he gets,’ the promotional email said.
‘This collectible ornament commemorates Trump’s commitment to the Christmas spirit and will be a great addition to your family tree this year,’ the note to supporters continued.
The ornament’s price point is a departure from most of the other merchandise the committee is selling.
For example, most t-shirts are $20 and then hoodies are $50, with a men’s pullover going for $55.
Men can get a #BigLeague tank top for just $18.
The committee sells large foam ‘thumbs up’ emblazoned with the Trump-Pence and ‘Make America Great Again’ logos for $25.
Catchy: Trump’s red baseball cap, emblazoned with his campaign slogan ‘Make America Great Again’, became synonymous with the president-elect
And the original ‘Make America Great Again’ hats are still for sale at $25 a pop.
The ‘Make America Great Again’ hats will likely become an iconic symbol for the unlikely win of the Trump campaign.
In a new Forbes profile of Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law, the young businessman used hat sales to see if his data operation was working.
‘I called somebody who works for one of the technology companies that I work with and I had them give me a tutorial on how to use Facebook micro-targeting,’ Kushner told the business magazine.
Kushner was able to use the medium to go from selling $8,000 worth of hats and other merchandise a day to $80,000, as a way to fuel the winning campaign.
