Narrator: The Trump campaign's officially licensed “Make America Great Again,” or “MAGA” hats, are made here, at the Cali-Fame headwear factory in Carson, California, just outside of Los Angeles. Before the campaign, Cali-Fame made hats for Trump's golf courses.
About 100 employees work in the factory, and, according to an interview Brian Kennedy did with the Los Angeles Times in 2015, about 80% of the workforce is Latino. But in 2015, MSNBC visited the factory and reporter Jacob Sonorous spoke with some workers.
Narrator: Making the hats requires a 23-step process, much of which is done by hand. We take it right to the embroidery machine, and then from embroidery we're taking it right to the sewing operation, where we're creating both the bill and the crown separately, so that eventually we put these two parts together by attaching the sweatband, finishing it with the plastic strap that's made in the US.
Narrator: The hats are shipped to the headquarters of Ace Specialties in Lafayette, Louisiana. It's an incredible opportunity to make this hat for the President of the United States.

Patrons won't be served at a Silicon Valley restaurant if they wear a “Make America Great Again” baseball cap. J. Kenji Lopez-Alt, a chef-partner of the Wurst hall restaurant in San Mateo, California, said in a tweet last weekend that he views the hats as symbols of intolerance and hate.
The tweet was no longer available Thursday but the newspaper reported it had more than 2,100 likes and more than 200 retweets as of Wednesday afternoon. The hats were worn by some Kentucky high school students involved in a Jan. 18 confrontation with a Native American elder near the Lincoln Memorial.
Her dining companion Esther She, 39, said she believed the hats had “come to represent racism, intolerance, exclusivity.” But she added that refusing to serve Trump supporters would exacerbate a situation where talking about differences might be better.
Bad Guarani, who was visiting from the Philippines, said the rule banning the hats wouldn't keep him from dining at the restaurant. Donald Trump supporters leaving the presidential candidate's rally in San Jose were pounced by protesters, some of whom threw punches and eggs.
Police stood their ground at first but after about 90 minutes moved into the remaining crowd to break it up and make arrests. The crowd, which had numbered over 300 just after the rally, thinned significantly as the night went on, but those that remained near the San Jose Convention Center were rowdy and angry.
Some banged on the cars of Trump supporters as they left the rally and chased after those on foot to frighten them. “Our police officers have done an extremely courageous and professional job so far,” San Jose Mayor Sam Riccardo told The Associated Press by phone.
The mayor, a Democrat and Hillary Clinton supporter, criticized Trump for coming to cities and igniting problems that local police departments had to deal with. Such protests are unlikely to be repeated on Friday when Trump holds a rally at the airport in the much smaller and more conservative city of Redding about 150 miles north of Sacramento.

Hello traders, I am in the market for a quiet long time and has used many buy-sell signals software, but they were never up to the mark. I am not regular traders but do trade in options and lost a lot in the market due to lack of technical.
I am a software engineer and also interested in the stock market So what should a person like me do to get into it from the beginning? Thankfully, in addition to our country's hardworking activists, there are a ton of celebrities using their social media presences to speak out against his atrocities.
Settling on just one of J.K. Rowling's Trump dishes is tough, but her epic, laughing rant following one of the President's typos (your classic pour v. pore mix up) takes the cake in my book. Notable mention: the time she said Voldemort was nowhere near as bad as Trump.
Following Trump ’s deplorable plan to prohibit transgender Americans from serving in the armed forces, Laverne Cox Tweeted a series of powerful messages. “To all the trans folks currently serving in the military thank you for your service,” she wrote.
Lady Gaga also took to social media to protest Trump's transgender military ban, highlighting the possible effects his actions could have on people's mental health. But rather than type up quick zingers à la Chrissy Taken, Legend infuses his Twitter feed with lengthy, no-bull-shit aphorisms.
After Trump referred to Haiti, El Salvador, and African regions as shithole countries,” Legend immediately called out the president's racism. Case in point: The comedian responded to Trump's illogical remarks about global warming with some sound advice.
Among the many celebrities that described their outrage while watching Trump ’s State of the Union address in January, Elizabeth Banks summed up her thoughts pretty perfectly. Trump's inauguration was a disheartening day for the many Americans who fought to keep the reality-star-turned-politician out of office.
The evening prior, Alicia Keys took to Twitter to share some words of wisdom. Everyone already knows that the POTUS has a habit of starting Twitter feuds with celebrities (is a sentence I never thought I would write).
Trump's jab at Jimmy Fallon, which was complete with laughable accusations and outdated, gendered language. Fallon clapped back like a boss by making a donation to The Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services.
After Trump's August 2017 rant (the artist formerly known as speech) in Phoenix, Arizona, Olivia Wilde posted a scathing response on Instagram. “His speech last night only confirmed what a pathetic, petulant, dishonest pig he is,” she wrote.
Following the massive turnout of the Women's March across the country, comedian Sarah Silverman took a quick jab at Trump via Twitter. After Trump and Vladimir Putin's controversial summit in July 2018, celebrities including Chris Evans spoke out immediately (and honestly).
Mia Farrow took to Twitter following the Supreme Court's decision to uphold Trump's travel ban. Leave it to actor Josh Gad to compose the perfect response.
