President Donald Trump has added a new item to his merchandise collection just in time for Halloween: a pumpkin MAGA hat. In a picture of his daughter-in-law, Lara Trump, modeling it, however, people noticed that there's a portrait the president hanging behind her.

The Halloween-themed hat features the face of a jack-o'-lantern on the front with the signature "Make America Great Again" slogan inscribed on the back, BuzzFeed News reported. It is featured on Trump's website and has officially sold out.

"It's Trick-or-Treat time and this MAGA hat is definitely a treat!" reads the description on the website.

Lara took to Twitter to promote the limited-edition pumpkin MAGA hat.

"#MakeHalloweenGreatAgain and order your pumpkin #MAGA hat today!" Lara tweeted, adding a link to the president's website.

But for some social media users, it was the framed photo of Donald seen in the background of Lara's photo that caught their eye.

"I'm just wondering if the photo of Lara Trump was taken in her home. I wouldn't be surprised," wrote one user. "Donald Trump seems like just the type to gift his son and daughter-in-law with a big framed picture of his own face superimposed over the American flag and insist they hang it in some prominent place and then take Trump-promoting selfies in front of…"

Other users called the frame "tacky."

"I particularly love how it looks like it’s next to the water heater or something," added another.

Other users pointed out the ethics of a president selling merchandise.

"Tell us again how you're not making money off of any business ventures, (Donald Trump)? If not, who is? Will it be donated?" asked one Twitter user.

"It's paying for his legal fees," quipped another user.

Other users found the price of the hat, which was $45, to be way too costly.

"Isn't Trump supposed to be about helping the little man, and he's a man for the working people," wrote one user. "What (fiscally) responsible person is going to spend $45 dollars on a hat they can wear for a month out of the year. I could make that hat my damn self."

Another user made a bold prediction about a potential MAGA hat that could be coming out in the near future.

"Which can only mean that in a couple of weeks the 'You Can Tell Me Merry Christmas' hats will go on sale," wrote one user. "You know, for the people who think other people are offended at the mere mention of the biggest holiday in the country."

"You better trademark that idea because you know it'll happen," responded another user.

The website does not specify whether any proceeds from the Halloween-themed caps will go to charity.
