President Donald Trump is trying to “make Christmas great again” with a new $45 holiday-themed baseball cap — but Twitter is having none of it.

The hat — which costs almost double the price of a standard $25 Make America Great Again cap — was promoted on the official GOP Twitter account over the weekend to harsh criticism.

Many slammed the president for commercializing a religious holiday and for making himself, rather than Christmas, the focus of the hat.

“Interesting how Trump’s slogan is the most prominent part of the hat,” tweeted one critic. “It’s not Merry Christmas on the front and Make America Great Again on the back. Guess it’s only a War on Christmas if he says it is.”

The holiday hat, currently on sale at President Trump’s campaign store, has the words “Merry Christmas” stitched onto the back. Trump has repeatedly railed against department stores and other businesses that have embraced the phrase “happy holidays” as a secular season greeting, bemoaning that people no longer say “Merry Christmas” “because it’s not politically correct.”

Trump promised on the campaign trail that if “I get elected president, we’re going to be saying Merry Christmas again.”
