During President Trump plus First Lady Melania Trump’ s i9000 visit to storm-torn Texas, the usa president couple wore baseball hats – and the internet is not happy about this.
The particular pair was spotted sporting informal caps as they visited the storm zone, the president with UNITED STATES printed across the front and a good aptly titled FLOTUS for Melania.
The headgear, which might not have produced such headlines in other circumstances, has been called out as Donald Trump trying to capitalize on the travesty brought on by Hurricane Harvey by wearing a head wear that he sells on his own website for $40.
Several news outlets are calling it capitalistic plus an attempt at product placement.
Upon social media, both sides have considered in about the couple’ s style choices — one defender tweeted “#YoureARealAdultWhen you focus on the particular victims of tragedy & the particular spirit of America rather @FLOTUS’ shoes or @POTUS’ hat! inch
While another aired their issues, tweeting : “Shame on @realDonaldTrump designed for using the presidency & #HurricaneHarvey being a platform to make himself wealthier. inch
This isn’ t the first time the presidential loved ones has been accused of using picture ops and press conferences to advertise their products. Ivanka, the president’ s i9000 daughter and advisor, wore the dress from her own brand throughout the 2016 Republican National Convention , plus Donald Trump has hosted campaigns from his hotels .
The response doesn’ t seem to affect the Trump group, as the president has continued to decorate his hat in different colors all through his week while he considered in on the destruction of Storm Harvey.
