The presidential campaign websites of Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D.-N.Y.) and President Donald Trump are exchanging “baby onesie” outfits in exchange for contributions.
The “onesie” on Gillibrand’s campaign site carries the inscription: “Gotta Crawl Before I Can Run (For President) kirstengillibrand.com.”
The onesie on the Trump campaign website says: Trump/Make America Great Again.”
A page on Gillibrand’s campaign website dedicated to the infant clothing item says: “Bold. Brave. Between naptimes. For aspiring president candidates everywhere.” It also notes that the onesie is “Made in U.S.A.,” is “Union-printed,” and is “100% organic cotton.”
The campaign’s online shop offers the onesie in three sizes, including for babies 3-6 months, 6-12 months, and 12-18 months.
The Trump campaign’s online website offers multiple items under the subheads “Apparel,” “Hats,” “Rally,” “Signs,” “Gifts,” and “Deals.”
One of the “deals” offered on the Trump campaign online store is a white T-shirt with a rainbow flag on the chest that is marked with the inscription “LGBTQ for Trump.” This T-shirt originally went for $30.00, but is now being offered for $24.00.
Another deal on that page of the Trump campaign online store offers a 4-pack of 16 oz., red plastic cups. These cups say “Make America Great Again” and “USA/Thank You Tour 2016.”
In addition to the baby “onesie,” Gillbrand’s online shop offers three other “apparel items—all of which are T-shirts—plus four accessories, including a bumper sticker pack, a Gillibrand 2020 baseball hat and a canvas tote bag with the inscription “Brave Wins.”
A Frequently Asked Questions page on Trump’s online campaign store says: “All of our products are 100% proudly made in the USA.”
