Military Says There Was Nothing Wrong With Trump Signing MAGA Hats For Soldiers

People in the liberal media spent a considerable amount of time attacking Trump and members of the military this week because the president signed MAGA hats for soldiers during his overseas visit. But there was nothing wrong with that at all.

Air Force: Nothing Improper with Airmen’s Pro-Trump Merchandise at Ramstein

U.S. Air Forces Europe said troops holding “Make America Great Again” hats during President Donald Trump’s visit Thursday to Ramstein Air Base were not in violation of military rules that prohibit taking part in partisan activities while in uniform.

“There is no rule against Airmen bringing personal items to be signed by the president,” USAFE said in a statement.

More than 200 airmen greeted Trump on Thursday at a Ramstein Air Base aircraft hangar, where the president and first lady Melania Trump were greeted with cheers.

Trump posed for photos, shook hands and signed autographs with airmen during a scene that resembled photo-op visits of former commanders-in-chief in years past. But the public display by some uniformed troops, who held red “Make America Great Again” hats synonymous with Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign, prompted widespread criticism on social media. An Air Force captain carrying a Trump banner also was scrutinized…

However, USAFE said it is unaware of any actions during the event that amounted to a violation of regulations.

“Any time the commander in chief offers the opportunity to meet with Airmen, such as this official holiday visit by the President and First Lady, Airmen are welcome to participate. No policy violations have been brought to our attention at this time,” USAFE said.

Does anyone believe the media would have had any problem with this if something similar happened on Obama’s watch?
