Listen To The Story

It's Cyber Monday, or the latest in a long string of manufactured excuses for us to go shopping.

Regardless, the occasion is not lost on the Trump for President campaign store. According to promotional emails sent out by the Trump campaign, you get 25 percent off using the promo code GREATDEAL. I am not making this up.

It's probably safe to assume that this rocky transition period hasn't really discouraged the Trump brand from consistently offering up some sweet deals. The campaign store ran a 30 percent off sale on Black Friday, and also made a Christmas ornament version of the red "Make America Great Again" hat, complete with a 24 karat gold finish. It's worth $149. Amazon buyers were not particularly thrilled about that product.
