Trump can be seen in the above photo sporting a new red hat emblazoned with USA and the No. 45 on the hat, as reported by Twitchy. President-elect Trump was photographed as he walked to a vehicle at Mar-A-Lago, on Sunday, November 27. Although it is a faraway photograph, the appearance of “USA” on the front of the red hat — where “Make America Great Again” usually resides on Trump’s red hats — can be seen. The No. 45, presumably for Mr. Trump becoming the 45th president of the U.S., appears on the side of the red hat that Trump donned when leaving Palm Beach, Florida on his way to Palm Beach International Airport.
Other photos taken the same day, as Trump boarded his plane once he arrived at Palm Beach International Airport, showed Trump wearing the red hat as well.
Trump was on his way to New York from West Palm Beach when he was seen wearing the new red hat.
As of this writing, the red hats with “USA 45” on them don’t seem to be available for sale on Trump’s website in the “New Arrivals” section of the shop. Nor do the “USA 45” hats appear under the “hats” section of Trump’s website. There are only “Make America Great Again” and “Trump Pence” hats for sale for $25 to $30 each.
As reported by Roberta Rampton, who covers the White House for Reuters, buzzards were also photographed as the ominous birds flew overhead in the skies above Mar-a-Lago as the press waited for Trump to depart the residence.

Trump hats have always been a source of interest — whether they are hats officially sold by Trump’s organization, those created by Trump fans, or ones that provide a twist on the “Make America Great Again” slogan to change it into their own slogan.
As seen in the above photo, a Trump supporter named Philemon Williams wore a Trump stovepipe hat on Wednesday, August 24.
The stovepipe hat featured an elephant, as well as “Make America Great Again.”
Williams wore the Trump hat when he waited to go into the Mississippi Coliseum, in Jackson, Mississippi, as he waited for a Trump rally that day. It would have been Trump’s third visit to Mississippi since January.
Even Trump’s opponents found ways to turn the “Make America Great Again” slogan on its head.
The above photo shows a red hat with “Make America Native Again” on the front, created by Navajo artist Vanessa Bowen.
According to the Associated Press description of the photo, the hat was photographed in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Vanessa is a Navajo artist who said she was inspired to create the hat after she felt Trump’s slogan excluded minorities. Bowen wasn’t the only one to feature a twist on Trump’s slogan, with variations like “Make America Mexico Again” and “Make American Gay Again” also appearing around the country.
Some of the comments being published on social media about Trump’s new “USA 45” hat can be read below.
“New Trump hat! USA 45 He was spotted earlier by press pool wearing it at Mar-A-Lago (where he was getting thoughts on Sec’y of State pick!)”
“As Trump left Mar-A-Lago, he was wearing a hat with ‘USA’ and ’45, likely reference to his status as the 45th president, per pool report.”
“I need a barf emoji. RT EricLiptonNYT Pool: He was wearing a dark suit, white shirt, and red hat. The hat said ‘USA’ and the number ’45.'”
Meanwhile, buzz about Trump-themed Christmas ornaments is also going around, with Snopes deeming rumors that the “Make America Great Again” Christmas ornaments were made in China “unproven” as of this writing.
