Presidential Candidate Donald Trump Tours U.S. Border In Texas
LAREDO, TEXAS - JULY 23: Republican Presidential candidate and business mogul Donald Trump talks to the media at a press conference during his trip to the border on July 23, 2015 in Laredo, Texas. Trump's recent comments, calling some immigrants from Mexico as drug traffickers and rapists, have stirred up reactions on both sides of the aisle. Although fellow Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry has denounced Trump's comments and his campaign in general, U.S. Senator from Texas Ted-Cruz has so far refused to bash his fellow Republican nominee.

Donald Trump is making America great again, one hat at a time.

He’s also doing right by the Lafayette, La., company Ace Specialities, from which he has bought half a million dollars worth of hats, according to a Wall Street Journal analysis of Federal Election Commission filings. That’s more than he spent on any item besides air travel, which he purchases from a company he owns himself. No outside vendor came close to billing the campaign the $500,000 that Ace did for his ubiquitous “Make America Great Again” hats.

When you add t-shirts to the mix, the total money Trump spent on these promotional items comes to $678,000, according to the report.
