U.S. Air Forces Europe issued a blunt statement on Thursday after CNN and other liberal outlets claimed that U.S. troops may have violated “military rules” by allowing President Donald Trump to sign their “Make America Great Again” hats.
On Wednesday, the president and First Lady Melania Trump made a surprise trip to Iraq to visit the troops for Christmas.
Several troops brought their own red “MAGA” hats and ot them signed by Trump.
CNN’s Jim Acosta and others led the charge by asserting that the troops potentially violated Pentagon rules by having the president sign hats that had a “Trump 2020” logo embroidered on them.
The Air Force released a statement slamming those reports and indicating that the troops did absolutely nothing wrong.
“There is no rule against Airmen bringing personal items to be signed by the president. 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.”
