Donald Trump Merchants Explain Why They’re Selling Donald Trump Merch

Adding to the overall spectacle that is the RNC are vendors selling all sorts of political merchandise, from t-shirts and buttons to bumper stickers and bobbleheads. Echoing the convention itself, the sentiments being broadcast on the products are either very pro-Trump or very anti-Clinton. The people selling the stuff though have a variety of reasons for doing so, and while some of them genuinely support Donald Trump, others are just looking to make some bread. Mass Appeal decided to take the temperature of these merchants and simply ask them: Do you support Donald Trump and why?
