Rudy Giuliani's hat says "MAKE MEXICO GREAT AGAIN ALSO." pic.twitter.com/qydTO4ALdX— Eric Bradner (@ericbradner) September 1, 2016
Forget “Make American Great Again” — Trump campaign has just unveiled a new slogan.
Unlike ordinary (normal?) folks, the Republican presidential nominee and his loyal followers do not wear their hearts on their sleeves — they proudly wear them on their heads, emblazoned across pompous baseball caps.
Before the business mogul’s immigration policy speech in Phoenix, Arizona, on Wednesday, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani walked onto the stage wearing a “Make Mexico Great Again Also” hat.
It was one of the most confusing and strangest fashion moments of the entire election season.
Is Trump going to run for president of Mexico if his current gig fails? What happened to making America great again?
Giuliani was not the only one to wear it — Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions also appeared on stage wearing the same embroidered cap.

Obviously, the internet was truly perplexed at the south-of-the-border twist to Trump campaign’s trademark headgear.

I thought we were getting close to Simpsons territory but with MAKE MEXICO GREAT AGAIN ALSO we are officially in Springfield, USA— Victoria Aveyard (@VictoriaAveyard) September 1, 2016
Make Mexico Great Again Also is seriously the election twist I did not see coming. #MMGAA— Andrew (@Iksenpets) September 1, 2016
Apparently, Trump coined the slogan himself. He supposedly had the notion to make not one, but two countries great again after his unprecedented visit to Mexico where he met President Enrique Peña Nieto and touted the “shared objective” of ending illegal immigration.

If you would've told me the text "make Mexico great again also" would fit on a hat I would've called you a liar— Take Haver (@weave221) September 1, 2016
That thing where randos take a punchline too seriously and you realize how we ended up with a "Make Mexico Great Again Also" hat.— Ethan Peretz (@MMonides) September 1, 2016
Make Mexico Great Again Also is not a joke? Like, not a joke? Wait... What?????— Leigh (@TruLeigh0) September 1, 2016
"Make Mexico Great Again Also" feels like something Zoolander would say— Max Weiss (@maxthegirl) September 1, 2016
Naturally, many were left wondering if Trump campaign would extend this madness country to other countries as well.
