Though there has been no official announcement, signs continue to point toward a likely 2024 White House bid by former President Donald Trump against President Joe Biden or Vice President Kamala Harris.
The latest hint came this weekend when Trump unveiled a new campaign hat that plays off of his “Make America Great Again” slogan.
“I want YOU to have it”
According to the Daily Caller, the red hat was designed by the former president himself and, instead of featuring the entire slogan, simply reads “MAGA” in large white letters with gold trim.

In its report, the New York Post noted that the hat could be purchased with Trump’s signature on the bill. The unique fundraising effort was announced to supporters of Trump’s Save America PAC.
“I just redesigned our BRAND NEW MAGA Hat and I want YOU to have it,” read a quote in the email attributed to Trump.
The message continued: “You’ve always been one of my most LOYAL supporters, so I don’t want you to have just ANY hat … I want YOU to have the MAGA Hat that I personally HAND-SIGNED for YOU.”
“Our best supporters”
Going on to reiterate that the design was being made available to “our best supporters,” the fundraising email concluded that the “movement isn’t slowing down, in fact, it’s only speeding up.”
The signed hats appeared to be exclusively available to those on the political action committee’s mailing list and were available for donations ranging from $25 to $250. An unsigned version of the redesigned hat is available on the Save America PAC’s website store for $40.
Of course, the hat could represent just the latest addition to an online store featuring a range of other Trump-branded merchandise.
On the other hand, it might be the next step toward laying the groundwork ahead of a widely anticipated 2024 presidential campaign.
It remains to be seen which is correct, but it is worth noting whether he dons the new hat at upcoming campaign-style rallies, the next of which is scheduled for later this month in Alabama.
