Donald Trump on Tuesday appeared to be thrilled when he arrived in Lake Charles, Louisiana, and was greeted by Louisiana Lieutenant Governor Billy Nungesser wearing socks that featured the president’s face and hair.
Trump shook Nungesser’s hand and pointed to the socks in an approving way upon his arrival.
The socks, made by Gumball Poodle, are available for purchase on Amazon and are described as “Donald Trump socks with soft, luxurious hair you can style, comb over, clip and tease. Change the President’s style to suit your mood!”
Trump traveled to Louisiana to speak at a liquefied natural gas export facility to discuss the country’s energy infrastructure and tout US energy exports.

Trump’s visit to the southern state comes amid an escalating trade war with China that has Wall Street on edge.
“We’re having a little squabble with China because we’ve been treated very unfairly for many, many decades — for, actually, a long time. And it should have been handled a long time ago, and it wasn’t. And we’ll handle it now,” the president told reporters on the White House South Lawn earlier in the day.
“We’re at a very strong position,” Trump added. “We are the piggy bank that everybody likes to take advantage of, or take from. And we can’t let that happen anymore.”
Twitter had some thoughts:
And to think that those socks only cost $20 and his dignity.
