Due to Trump’s latest tariffs on products from China, Trump’s infamous Make America Great Again hats could double in price.

The tariffs would apply to $200 billion worth of Chinese imports.

According to David Lassoff, who sells the hats online, the prices could double to at least $20.

Lassoff stated, “We usually sell the MAGA hats for around $9 to $12. But it could go up to $20 if we had to make them in the U.S. and embroider them here.”

He added that a few Chinese manufacturers told him they may charge him more per order.

He stated, “There might be a limited quantity [of hats] in the future. We’re trying to make sure we have enough hats in stock now, so if things change, we’re prepared.”

The tariffs come as Trump has battled with China due to what he called unfair trade practices. This led him to announce a potential $200 billion sanctions package.

In response, China also imposed tariffs. The tariffs would apply to soybean, grain, and other exports that would affect the states that supported Trump in 2016.
