When Donald Trump visited Newport News Shipbuilding in Virginia, he decided to try out a new look while making a speech aboard nuclear aircraft carrier Gerald Ford.
The US president was given a military jacket to take home, and he took it as an opportunity to jazz up his wardrobe a bit.
Trump started his speech by saying: “They just gave me this beautiful jacket. They said ‘here Mr President, please take this home’. I said ‘let me wear it’.
“And then they gave me the beautiful hat and I said ‘you know, maybe I’ll do that’. We have a great Make America Great Again hat but I said ‘this is a special night, we’re wearing this, right?’
“So I have no idea how it looks, but I think it looks good, it’s a great looking hat. Just like this is a great looking ship.”

Well, Twitter had their say on what they thought about the outfit, and some are quite overwhelmed.

I don't think I have ever seen Trump not wearing a suit jacket or a sports jacket. It's a lot to take in. https://t.co/KGRt6FdJz3

TRUMP WEARING NAVY JACKET & HAT IS TOO MUCH. THIS IS #OUTRAGEOUS.

Of course, many couldn’t resist cracking some jokes about the way Trump looked.
Is it me or do Trump's hands look extra small in his Navy jacket?

Trump looks a tourist in that hat and jacket, like he bought it in the gift shop

Well, this person reckons Trump certainly seemed to enjoy wearing something different anyway…
I bet Trump sleeps in that jacket tonight.
