Making Christmas ‘great again’ will cost you $149 as Trump campaign and GOP are still raising money with sloganeering merchandise 

Now team Trump wants to make Christmas ‘Great Again’ – but not for cheap.  

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 today offering them the chance to buy a Christmas ornament version of the famed red ‘Make America Great Again’ ball cap. 

The ornament – made of brass and finished in 14 karat gold – is being sold for $149.

The Donald Trump campaign, in conjunction with the Republican National Committee, is selling 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.  

 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.
