Trump supporters’ China-made MAGA hats are being held up by US customs — thanks to the president’s tariffs

Published

Trump supporters eager to get their hands on Trump-themed shirts and hats may have to wait more than they normally would have — and it’s all thanks to the president’s tariffs.

Business Insider points to a report from Chinese publication Global Times claiming that Chinese textile manufacturers that produce Trump gear are having greater trouble getting their goods into the United States thanks to the current trade war between the U.S. and China.

In particular, manufacturers are finding that their “Keep America Great” hats and “Trump 2020” flags are being held up at U.S. customs, thus delaying their delivery to customers.

“Usually the goods only take 10 days to reach US customers,” Wu Yuepei, a manager at Qiwang Textile Product, tells Global Times. “Now it is taking 15 days or longer.”

Additionally, Business Insider reports that “manufacturers from China’s Jiangsu and Hebei provinces, who have reportedly produced hundreds of ‘Make America Great Again’ hats, have said the cost of their product is likely to spike due to impending tariffs.”

Trump on Friday ratcheted up his trade war with China and threatened to slap tariffs on every single Chinese product exported to the U.S., which would be a tax on more than $500 billion worth of goods.

"For Trump, lying is central to his disturbed psyche, and to his success. The brazenness of it unbalances and stupefies sane and adjusted people, thereby constantly giving him an edge and a little breathing space while we try to absorb it, during which he proceeds to the next lie," he wrote.
