You know, these hats:
You can get them in red, white, camouflage…really any color you want.
The hats are being produced in the Cali-Fame factory in Carson, California which mainly employs Latinos, according to the LATimes.

Despite asking a predominately Latino workforce to construct his hats, there haven’t been any negative comments from employees according to Brian Kennedy, president of Cali-Fame.
That’s right, and the irony isn’t lost on the Latinos who work there.

“When we first got the order [for the Trump hats], I said to myself, ‘Just wait until he sees who’s making his hats,'” Yolanda Melendrez told the LATimes. “We’re Latinos, we’re Mexicans, Salvadoreños.”
FOX News has reported that the factory workers are grateful to Trump for the extra work.

They interviewed Melendrez as well, who said the increase in work from hat production has benefited the workers at the factory with steady work and pay.
